Check if your computer meets the system requirements a couple of days before the exam.
To have the best possible experience while taking a proctored exam, we recommend that you do the following in advance:
Read the rules of the exam. Leave just the allowed items on your desk (calculator, class notes – whatever is mentioned in the exam rules).
|Make sure your room is well lit. At the same time, no light sources should be pointed straight at your web camera;|
Ensure silence in the room and that no other person enters it while you're taking the exam;
|Make sure your internet connection is stable. We recommend that you use a wired (Ethernet) connection for improved stability.|
Check if your web camera is on and not covered up.
Ensure that your mic is on, and its volume is not set to zero.
|Keep your ID or whatever document will be required for identification at hand.|
|Keep your laptop plugged in during the exam. Most laptops have lower performance while working off the battery.|
Turn off any third-party programs that may use your webcam or mic. Close all tabs in the browser except for the one with the exam. Do not use a second browser while taking the test.
|Unplug your headphones and take them off the desk.|
Unplug any additional monitors, mice, and keyboards.
