Question for those who have taken the online proctored exam already -

My online exam is in 5 days.. Yikes!!! and I was reading through some lessons learnt and experiences of those who have taken the online exam. Some have mention that during the exam check in they were asked to take a few pictures of the room and desk from their phone. How these are then shared with the proctor ? I assume through a link sent on the phone? Is that accurate?

If phones are not allowed as part of the instructions then why have they been asked to use the phone for photos.??

Wondering if anyone can clarify this? The website instructions are vague on this as well

Thank you
Ritika

Thanks
Ritika

If you provide a mobile phone number you will be asked to take pictures of your surroundings with the phone. Once you submit your photos there is a screen that tells you that you must place your device out of reach. Just follow the instructions and you shouldn't have any issues.

I presume if you don't have a mobile phone you would have to use your device's webcam, but cannot confirm as I used my phone as well.

Thanks Kyle

Sounds good. So they probably give you a link to be opened on your phone to upload pictures!

Understood. Thanks for the clarification

Yes, they send you a link via text message. The same way that you'd receive it doing the system check.

Oh.. I didn't receive anything on my phone number during system check. I went through the process and everything worked fine with a sample test question!

Not sure why, probably will figure it on D-day
