Taking the written exams online - guidance

Choosing a place to sit the exam

A quiet, secure environment means:

  • A room to which you have exclusive access (single occupancy - not shared). You cannot sit in a group or a location where others are sitting the same test, even if they are in separate rooms. This is because the exam is not being sat in a secure environment. 
  • A room that does not have integrated security cameras, or any recording equipment, other than the webcam on your PC or laptop
  • You are confident you will not be disturbed during the examination, e.g. by traffic, construction work, or people
