Tips for Computer Use on Exams

During exams, being diligent about your computer can be a good thing. Every year several students show up at our offices, and while we are trying to recover their exam, reveal that their computer has been having all sorts of trouble lately, or that they had worked on their exam for three hours and had not bothered to save it before it crashed. Be sure to confirm your computer's operating system is compatible with the exam platform and take the practice exam prior to the exam period to familiarize yourself with the platform and to identify any existing concerns. 

If you have been having trouble with your computer lately, have it serviced before exams.  Alternatively, you may write out your exam by hand.
