Requirements and Rules!
- Most exams are closed-book exams and no reference material is allowed to be accessed during it - The exception is the Fundamentals in FD&A exam where you will require a copy of BS 5839-1 to take part
- Delegates will be required to show ID prior to an exam
- Each delegate will be required to use a camera/webcam to allow the invigilators to watch you take the exam
- A web camera is required to take part and will need to be able to be used to show the area where the exam is taking place
- If the connection is lost to a delegate, reconnection needs to be achieved as quickly as possible (support telephone numbers will be available).
- If lost connection accounts for more than 10 minutes of any exam then it will be deemed a failure and need to be retaken
- All exam sessions will be recorded so the exam sessions can be reviewed
- You are allowed a calculator and one blank bit of paper to use during the exam for any working out you need to do. This would need to be shown prior to the exam
- If at any time a delegate is seen to deviate from any of the above or is deemed to be “cheating” in relation to the exam, they will be given two warnings by the invigilator; should the delegate deviate in the same manner again, it will be considered as a failed exam.
