Prepare exam rooms

Room requirements for digital exams are different from paper exams. Work with your Exam Centre Manager to configure the space.

  • Exam rooms must comply with health and safety regulations. This includes ensuring any plugs or cords are not a hazard.
  • Each room requires a device for the exam supervisor(s) to monitor the exam from the supervisor dashboard.
  • If possible, have students sitting digital exams in a separate room from those sitting the paper exam. If sharing, have students sitting the exam digitally at the back of the room to reduce distractions.
  • Ensure desks are far enough apart so students cannot see what is on neighbouring screens and supervisors can walk between rows.
  • Supervisors need to observe multiple students’ screens from one vantage point. This may be between rows or from the back of the exam room.
