EUIPO competition’ – EPSO looking into technical issues with automated proctoring
EPSO is currently running a competition for Administrators in the field of intellectual property. Online testing using automated proctoring took place on 26 September 2023.
The experience was positive overall with some 1500 candidates having tested successfully, but we are aware that a number of candidates experienced technical difficulties preventing them from connecting to the test platform or reaching the helpdesk soon enough to restart their connection. Problems were also reported as concerns the ‘ID check’.
We are paying particular attention to those cases and working hand in hand with our contractor with a view to providing candidates in these specific situations with retesting opportunities. A retesting window is already planned for 6 October 2023. EPSO will communicate with the candidates in question via e-mail (sender: EPSO CONTACT).
