leave a comment »

Here are some tips so you know what to expect on the exam day. These tips are for the parts of the exam that you do on a computer (not the speaking test). 

Before the exam

Check the date, time and address of your exam. Your centre will send you this information. If you have any questions, contact your centre before the exam day.

Remember to check how long it will take you to travel to the exam, especially if your exam is at a weekend or on a holiday.

Get to the exam early! Follow the direction sigs to find the exam room or go to the reception of the building and ask for directions.

Things to bring to the exam 

Bring your identification, for example a passport. It must be an original (not a copy) and must have a photo of you.

Bring pens and pencils. Your centre will also give you pens and pencils if you need them.

Do not bring food or drink to your desk in the exam room (except a bottle of water).

You cannot bring your phone or any other electronic devices to your desk in the exam. Your centre will tell you where to put them during the exam.

During the exam 

Do not bring bags, phones, etc. to your desk.

Listen carefully to the instructions which the invigilator will read out.

Make sure you follow the instructions on your computer screen.

There is a timer on the screen which will tell you how much time you have to complete that section of the exam.

Do not talk to other people, or try to see what they are typing. If you have any questions, need help or want to leave the room, raise you hand to ask for help.

If you are doing a listening test, check that you can hear the test properly. Raise your hand immediately if you cannot hear the recording.

At the end of each paper

At the end of each paper if you have used paper to make notes, leave this at your desk, do not take it out of the exam room.

Always stay in your seat until the invigilator gives you permission to leave the room.

If you have any questions or problems, tell the invigilator immediately.

Good luck with your exam!
