Online Examination Requirements

We are using a platform specifically designed for computer-based assessments (hosted by CYIM), combined with live invigilation services (by ProctorU). This means your computer and webcam will be accessed by the system and a live proctor/invigilator will uphold the examination regulations and procedures. You can take the online examination at home or in an office, with reliable internet connection and laptop/PC.

Each candidate must create an account with ProctorU and schedule their examination on their platform by booking an exam session. ProctorU is a company that specialises in invigilating exams remotely and they will be directly monitoring you throughout the exam to assist with any technical problems. More information will be provided once your registration is confirmed.

Please watch the videos below – this will help you to familiarise yourself with the layout of the platform in advance of the examination.
