Your remote proctored test – how it works
Your test will be monitored by a Proctor and recorded using the Mercer Mettl Remote Proctoring System. Your Proctor is a real person who has been trained to monitor your test delivery and identify any candidate’s behaviour that might break the test delivery rules or cheated in any way. They can stop your test if they believe you have broken the test delivery rules (e.g. committing malpractice). In addition, Artificial Intelligence is used to add a further level of security to the test (see Technical Requirements appendix below) and a candidate may be disqualified even after taking the test if cheating is verified.
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing will be able access and review the recording of your test, this includes reviewing the recording where malpractice is suspected. This may lead to your results being disqualified if malpractice is confirmed.
Please note that the recording will also indicate if there is a technical problem, so you will not be suspected of malpractice. Additional information regarding possible technical problems can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions located at the end of this document.
