Available for in-centre and home use, our onscreen mocks are built to support flexibility and accessibility in delivering assessments. Building on our experience of delivering onscreen assessments across the world, we've worked extensively to ensure that the paper-based and onscreen mock examination experiences are as similar as possible.
The onscreen exam experience
We have worked extensively to keep the onscreen mock examination experience as close as possible to that of the paper-based assessment, but there are some questions where the experience may be different between learners who take the examination onscreen and those who do so on paper.Whilst the skills required may be different between the two modes of delivery, the knowledge and understanding of the concepts required to successfully complete these questions will remain the same.
When you’ve submitted your students' entries for their onscreen mocks, we will be in touch about the following:
Technology requirements: to confirm your school meets the standard requirements for onscreen delivery. In the meantime you can check the minimum requirements on the PDF below.
