What to expect for assessment conducted through remote proctoring?

  1. Before the assessment day: Candidates are encouraged to conduct a system check to ensure that their device and connectivity meet the minimum system requirements.
  2. Pre-assessment check: On the day of the assessment, candidates will be asked to show their identification document (NRIC or passport) to verify their identity. Candidates will also be asked to use their webcam to scan the room where they will be taking their assessment.
  3. During the assessment: Candidates will be monitored throughout the assessment session and the entire assessment session will be recorded. If candidate engages in any of the acts listed as misconduct, an incident report will be submitted to IHRP.
