Tips for preparing to write online tests or exams:

  • Reboot your computer several hours before the test (or the day before) to try to avoid crashes during the test.
  • Ensure your computer is stable with regard to updates and patches -- don't want to get stuck in an OS update while trying to submit your test answers.
  • Ensure your laptop battery is charged (if relevant), and that you have your power adapter, etc.
  • Ensure your phone is charged, and that you have a power adapter, etc, for it.
  • If possible, have a backup strategy – for example, access to a family member or housemate’s PC, in case you encounter issues with your PC or laptop.
