Computer based exams after lockdown

With the country slowly emerging out of lockdown we are now able to offer computer based exams within our centre. We understand candidates may feel apprehensive about attending exams in centre, so we have put together this article to explain what we have put in place in our centres to keep everyone safe.

Social distancing

We will be adhering to the 2 metre social distancing rule. This applies to candidates walking around the centre as well as spacing our computers 2 meters apart. We have placed yellow tape around the centre to mark the 2 meters.

Cleaning

All machines and surfaces will be cleaned with anti-bacterial spray/wipes before and after each exam. Candidates should also use the hand sanitiser stations whilst in the centre.

The exam room

We have reduced the amount of candidates in each exam room to adhere to the 2 meter rule. This does mean we need to run more exams to serve the same amount of candidates that we had before. Please be patient if you waiting for an exam slot.

Facemasks

We are asking all candidates to wear a face mask when they are in centre. If you do not have one of these we can provide you with one.

Personal belongings

We are asking all candidates to reduce the amount of items they bring into the centre to avoid contamination. We are also encouraging candidates to bring in their own bottled water if they expect to need a drink.

Additional measures

To ensure the safety of our staff and students we are asking all students who have an exam to fill out a health form and return it to us the day before their exam. It is important to contact us if anything changes before the exam or you experience Coivd 19 symptoms up to 14 days after your exam in our centre. We will not charge you if you need to cancel your exam due to illness.

How to book a computer based exam

We are currently prioritising exam spaces for our own students and for those who already had an exam booked with us before lockdown.  We will open up to external booking when we have capacity. We expect to be able to take bookings for external students by 1 August. If you would like to make a new booking please do not contact us before this date as we are unable to take bookings yet.
