  • AMD Athlon x2 or higher;
  • 2 cores and higher;
  • 8 GHz and higher;

2. Google Chrome

Ensure there are no unnecessary software installations on your computer. Google Chrome browser is required to perform the test. Make sure that your browser settings don’t block 3rd party cookies.

3. A photo ID

We need to identify you with your student card, passport, ID card, or a driver’s license that has your name and photo on it. Be sure to cover private info such as student number. You will be asked to bring the ID document close to the webcam and press Take a Photo

Note: Sometimes after identification is complete the system may ask you to login again. Don’t worry, the test will become available when you enter your login and password.

4. A steady internet

We require a steady internet connection (wifi will be required for mobile streaming) with a minimum upload speed of 1,5 Mbps (be careful: this is not your download speed). We strongly recommend you use an ethernet cable to ensure a stable connection.

1. Your room is well lit

You should be clearly visible at all times. Through the setup process, you will be able to see what your webcam is sharing. Make sure that lighting is sufficient and no backlighting.

2. You are alone

You should be the only one taking the exam, having someone else in the room is a serious violation. Make sure to cover any irrelevant private info you would not like to show such as pictures or private objects.

3. Cam positioned right

We need to be able to see you and your surroundings well. Check the videos feeds which are shown on your screen as you start your exam, they will show you exactly what is recorded and how.

1. No extra devices

By default, you’re are not allowed to use additional devices such as second screens or phones/tablets. There are some exceptions:

  • When a smartphone is required for its camera, this device is obviously not forbidden.
  • Certain tools, like calculators, are allowed only when the exam instructions state so.
  • Things such as medical support devices or items may be used if necessary, but you must show this to the camera when prompted.

2. No headphones

We need to be able to hear what you are hearing in order for the exam to be valid.

3. No talking (or singing)

Any noise and talking will be analysed for suspicious behaviour, so make sure you are in a quiet environment and that you refrain from talking out loud.

4. No toilet breaks

You will need to remain within the camera frame during the exam, so toilet breaks are not allowed. Make sure you go before starting the exam.
