What to Expect on Exam Day

Preparing for Your Test Day


Your upcoming test day with Certify Assessment Solutions is an important step in your educational journey. To ensure a smooth and successful experience, here’s what you should expect and how you can prepare:


Before Test Day:


  1. System Check: Ahead of your assessment, it’s a good practice to run a system check. This helps ensure that your computer, internet connection, and any required software are in working order. Certify provides a system check tool to assist you in this process.
  2. Quiet, Well-Lit Space: Find a quiet and well-lit room where you can focus without distractions. Adequate lighting is essential for both your comfort and for clear video capture if you’re using remote proctoring.
  3. Proper Seating: Choose a comfortable chair and desk/table to sit at during the assessment. Make sure your seating arrangement promotes good posture and minimizes discomfort.
  4. Minimal Disturbances: If possible, arrange for a test-taking environment with minimal disturbances. Alert family members or roommates about your test schedule to avoid interruptions.
  5. Pets and Distractions: While we love our furry friends, it’s best to have them outside the testing area during your assessment. Reducing potential distractions will help you stay focused.



On Test Day:


  1. Log In Early: Log in to the assessment platform a little earlier than your scheduled test time. This gives you time to resolve any last-minute technical issues and ensures a prompt start.
  2. Camera and Microphone: If you’re using remote proctoring, make sure your camera and microphone are working correctly. Position your camera to capture your face and the exam environment clearly.
  3. System Check (Again): Before beginning the assessment, run a final system check to confirm everything is functioning as expected.
  4. Stay Calm: Test anxiety is natural, but remember to stay calm. Take deep breaths if you start feeling nervous, and read each question carefully.
  5. Contact Support: If you encounter any technical issues or have questions during the assessment, don’t hesitate to contact our support team. They’re here to assist you promptly.


At Certify, we’re committed to providing you with a secure and user-friendly testing experience. By following these guidelines and preparing thoughtfully, you can maximise your chances of success on test day. We’re here to support you every step of the way, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you need assistance. Good luck on your assessment!
