Should you take your exam online?
Testing online with the OnVUE system is flexible, convenient and easy — but there are unique requirements you should be familiar with. For example, you’ll need a private, distraction-free space to take the exam. A system test will show if your computer and internet are sufficient. And you’ll be monitored by proctors and assistive AI tools during the test. Weigh your options »
