Zoom/Video Exams

The pandemic has forced us all to think about different ways to do everyday things. As a result, we have introduced two types of online exams for teachers to choose from – ‘Zoom Exams’ and ‘Video Exams’. We have seen teachers adapt to online learning in different ways over the past few months, which is why feel it’s important to offer more than one option to do exams online.  The first option, ‘Zoom Exams’, allows candidates to do their exam on a live video call with an examiner. The second option, ‘Video Exams’, is a simple, straightforward, safe and secure way for candidates to video record their exam from home and upload it directly to us. Here’s how both options work:

Zoom Exams

  • The teacher submits an online booking form (see below)
  • We will send the teacher a confirmation email including a timetable template and the examiner’s name and contact details
  • The teacher schedules a Zoom meeting for the exams and shares the meeting details with the candidates and examiner
  • After the exams have taken place, report sheets, certificates and medals will be prepared and sent to the teacher in due course

Video Exams

  • Submit an online booking form (see below)
  • We will send the teacher a confirmation email including a timetable template and a link to a private and secure folder that has been created for the exam centre
  • The teacher shares the link, plus some helpful instructions that we’ve drafted, to each candidate
  • Each candidate simply videos themselves performing their exam pieces at home and uploads their video to the folder via the shared link
  • When all the candidates have uploaded their videos, we’ll give the assigned examiner access to the folder
  • Report sheets, certificates and medals will be prepared and sent to the teacher in due course

If you have any questions about your online exam process please do get in touch. We want to make the process as easy as possible for teachers and candidates.
