EPSO is always looking for ways to improve the candidate experience. We will switch to automated remote proctoring for our tests, starting with CAST exams between 13-14 September 2023. Instead of using human proctors, proctoring will now be fully machine-assisted. This innovation will offer candidates a smoother testing experience (e.g. a simple ID check and confirmation, no personal checks, no interruptions by a proctor during testing), whilst maintaining the necessary security requirements (candidates will be recorded while testing).
