Book an online assessment
To write your assessment online, all you need is a computer, web camera, and a high-speed internet connection. At the time of your assessment, a live online proctor will provide the necessary software to effectively proctor your test session remotely. After the session is complete, the proctor will remove any remote proctoring software from your computer.
To write your assessment online, please follow these steps:
