How are remotely proctored computer-based tests organised?

All competitions are run online via remote proctored tests. EPSO started this transition during the pandemic, and the vast majority of candidates have welcomed the flexibility provided. 

Remote proctoring via our external contractor allows candidates to sit the tests securely in a remote location with their own computer.

When taking a remotely proctored test, candidates will be continuously monitored using various monitoring tools. 

Exams are continuously monitored for suspicious activity or behaviour by video and audio recordings.
