This article provides tips on how to prepare your workplace for the best proctored exam experience.

Make sure your room is well-lit. At the same time, no light sources should be pointed straight at your web camera.

Ensure silence in the room and that no other person enters it while you're taking the exam;

Make sure your internet connection is stable. We recommend that you use a wired (Ethernet) connection for improved stability.

Check if your web camera is on and not covered up.

Ensure that your mic is on, and its volume is not set to zero.

Keep your ID or whatever document will be required for identification at hand.
Keep your laptop plugged in during the exam. Most laptops have lower performance while working off the battery.

Turn off any third-party programs that may use your webcam or mic. Close all tabs in the browser except for the one with the exam. Do not use a second browser while taking the test.

Unplug your headphones and take them off the desk.

Unplug any additional monitors, mice, and keyboards.
