Remote on-demand CBE availability

If you are based in a location where attending one of our exam centres is not possible you may now be able take remotely invigilated on-demand computer based exams (CBEs).  Partnering with the British Council and ProctorU, students in selected markets can now register and schedule their exam remotely.  Watch the video to find out all you need to about how to book one these exams.

Before booking your exam

Before booking it is important that you understand and complete these pre-booking steps.  This is to make sure that you have the appropriate equipment, environment and connectivity speed to run the exam successfully.  You should therefore check:

  • Your computer or laptop device meets the minimum specification to run the exam.  Please note that exams cannot be run on a Mac.  We also do not recommend using a computer provided by your employer or institute as their own security policies may prevent software installation or prevent your exam starting.

Read the device minimum specification requirements

  • You can run the invigilation software from ProctorU. 

Check you can run the invigilation software

Unfortunately, if you are unable to confirm both these steps then you will not be able to run the exam successfully and you should not book a remote on-demand CBE.

Finally, if you require any additional support whilst taking your exam, these need to be requested and approved before booking your exam.
