How do I take my scheduled exam with Examity?

Please Note: We encourage test-takers to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of their exam. This will allow ample time to connect with your proctor and troubleshoot any technical issues that may arise.

The time it takes you to connect to your proctor and complete the authentication process does not count towards your exam duration.

Proctor support will walk you through the authentication process. Please be prepared to support the requests below: Depending on the authentication level your instructor selected, you may be required to:

2. Review the exam rules.
