Important note:

The current COVID-19 situation does not have an impact on OMPT operations. This includes the time it takes to check and grade your exams.

Rules

Test rules

  • The test can be scheduled at any date/time. You are able to reschedule your test attempt via ProctorU. Please do so before the start of your exam, instead of during the exam, to avoid any suspicion of exam fraud.
  • You have to be alone, in a quiet and well-lit space.
  • You are not allowed to take toilet breaks.
  • You are not allowed any resources other than a pencil and paper.
  • You can use a Chrome or Firefox browser.
  • The time for your exam does not start until the exam itself has been opened. The time spent showing your proctor your ID, verifying your identity and securing your testing space does not count toward your exam time.
  • Please log into your ProctorU account 2-3 minutes before the scheduled time of the exam.
  • OMPT reserves the right to withdraw anyone from exams and/or resits if there is suspicion of exam fraud.
  • It's your own responsibility to know when your university has a deadline.

If you have a disability or a condition which you believe should be taken into consideration, e.g. dyslexia or dyscalculia granting extra time during the exam, please send us an e-mail enclosing evidence from a doctor or professional demonstrating appropriate specialist qualifications. Requests without verifiable evidence will not be considered.

What do I bring?

  • Make sure to bring a government-issued photo ID. If you do not have a photo ID, you may not be able to take your exam.
  • You are allowed to use paper and a pencil to make notes. You will have to destroy your notes afterwards.
  • During the test, you are not allowed to use your own calculator. You will automatically gain access to a digital on-screen four-function calculator.
  • Bring a reflective device, such as a mirror or a mobile phone with a camera, to show your proctor around the edges of your screen.

Hardware

  • Make sure to have a computer or laptop with a webcam, microphone and speakers which are installed and working correctly. A built in camera and mic in a laptop will work just fine. You can use the ProctorU platform to test your hardware.
  • You need a browser plug-in. You will be guided by ProctorU step-by-step during the set-up process.
  • Make sure to have a high-speed and stable internet connection. Wireless internet (Wi-Fi) is allowed but discouraged.
