Instructions to examinees are here

  • Registration for a specific session, on a particular day, returns a PIN that is uniquely associated with the applicant, and is just for just that session.
  • If a session is full, you can try checking back later in case someone cancels. We do not have a wait list. We have no way to move you from one session to another. If you register and miss your session, you’ll have to register for another session and get a new PIN.

After you register:

  • A day or two before the exam, we will email you a link to the Zoom Session.
  • We will send you instructions for paying the exam fee. If you don’t receive instructions by the night before the exam, please email the Session Owner.
  • Please check your SPAM folder.
  • The remote exams are scheduled for a range of times, and no one has a reservation for a specific time. The time of the session might say 10am, but look at the range of times for the session. Most sessions run an hour or more.
  • You will have to open a browser to take the exam – we’ve found that Chrome browsers work best on a PC, Mac or Linux. We’ve found some tablets work, but some do not.
