How are remotely proctored computer-based tests organised?

Remote proctoring via our contractor Prometric’s ProProctor application allows candidates to sit the tests securely in a remote location with their own computer rather than in one of the computer-based test centres. 

A “proctor” is a supervisor, or a person who monitors candidates during a test. When taking a remotely proctored test, candidates will be continuously monitored by live proctors using various monitoring tools. Candidates can reach out to the proctor if they have questions or in case of emergency.

Exams are continuously monitored for suspicious activity or behaviour by video and audio recordings.
