Testing area: While your exam taking will be recorded and reviewed, we rely on the honor system with our students. It is recommended that you take the exam in a quiet area with minimal distraction – your local coffee shop is not the best place to take the exam. The area must be clear of notes, books, reference materials, secondary computers, and the like. You should be connected to a high-speed, broadband connection for the 90-minute duration of the exam so be sure to test your Internet access prior to starting the exam.
Personal items: The only item allowed in the testing area is your identification. Please leave any backpacks, laptops, briefcases and other personal items at away from the testing area. No cameras, cell phones, audio players, or other electronic devices are allowed during exam sessions.
You will receive the provisional exam score immediately after completion of your exam. The score report will display the percentage of items that you answered correctly. Your final grade will be emailed once your exam has been reviewed by our proctors.
