About one week before you’d like to take your exam, find out if your computer and internet connection will work with the OnVUE software. Go to your program’s online testing page, click Run system test, and follow the instructions.
By running this test using the same computer and internet connection you plan to use for your exam, you can feel confident about your setup. Plus, you get a preview of the check-in and exam launch processes.
We suggest running the system test at approximately the same time of day you expect to take your exam, to get a better feel for the internet connection you’re likely to have. If you run the system test at 10:00 pm and take your exam at 2:00 pm, the bandwidth available may be quite different.
We recommend running the system test again two to three days before your exam. This will identify any issues that might arise from automatic software downloads, background upgrades, etc.
The system test check-in and exam are only simulated. Your answer to the sample exam question posed will not be checked or retained. You can run the system test as many times as needed.
If your setup fails the system test or doesn’t meet minimum requirements, you can take your exam at a testing center instead.
