Some other FAQ related to this year's examination:

  1. Candidates do not pick a date and time for their exam. You will follow the procedures to launch your online exam and sign online when you’re ready to take the exam. For example, if your best availability is on Friday, October 19 at 9:00 pm EDT, you’re permitted to sign on and take the exam at your leisure.
  2. The same policies and procedures apply to the remote proctor exam.
    1. You have 3.5 hours (210 minutes) to complete the 100-question multiple choice exam, and you will be monitored by a remote proctor.
    2. You are permitted to take the exam once.
    3. You are permitted to have two pieces of blank paper to work on calculations. You're required to shred them in front of the proctor before your exam session concludes.
    4. You are permitted to use a battery-powered, nonprogrammable calculator. You are not able to use your phone's calculator or the calculator on the computer you're using to take the exam.
  3. Specifications / Requirements to take the exam remotely via ProctorExam (video here):
    1. Your computer is required to have a webcam (internal or external) which will be used to monitor you during the exam process.
    2. You’re required to download an app to your Android or Apple phone or table. This will be placed behind you in the room which you’ll be taking the exam to monitor your surroundings. I will share this with you at a later date.
    3. You’re required to use Google Chrome and download a browser extension which records your monitor. Nothing is downloaded or stored to your computer.
    4. Your internet speed should be consistent enough as to not time out during your exam session. It’s recommended that your internet speeds be at least 5 MB down and up. If you need to determine this please visit speedtest.net and run a test on the computer and internet connection you will use for the exam.
