No other subjects this session have live invigilated exams. You do not need to schedule your exam if it is an AI invigilated exam.
Once you’ve accepted the consent form in MyStudentAdmin and created your ProctorU account, you’ll be able to schedule your exam to begin at a set time within your exam window.
You should schedule your exam as soon as possible. The earlier you schedule your exam, the more available time slots you will have to choose from. Schedule your exam no later than 72 hours (3 days) before your exam to avoid any late scheduling penalties that UTS might incur.
Why do I need to schedule my exam?
If your exam is Live invigilated, that means it will be supervised by a real person who has been trained to supervise online exams. It’s important to schedule your exam to make sure both you and your proctor will be available at the same time.
Students with AI invigilated exams don’t need to schedule their exam/s with ProctorU.
How do I schedule my Live invigilated exam?
Log in to ProctorU using your UTS student email address and the password you created when you signed up (if you haven’t consented via MyStudentAdmin and signed up to ProctorU yet, you can find out how to do so here. You must use your UTS student email address when you sign up or you won’t be able to sit your exam).
Once logged in, click ‘Schedule New Session’.
Confirm your institution is University of Technology Sydney and select the current term and what exam you want to schedule. Click ‘Find Sessions’.
Use the calendar on the left to select the date your exam is available - the date your exam is available will be bold so you can find it easily. Then, select a time within your exam window. Try to schedule your exam as early as possible within the exam window.
Below the calendar and clock, you’ll be able to see more information about the exam you’re scheduling, including its duration. It's a good idea to double-check this information to make sure you are scheduling the right exam.
Once you’ve selected the date and time, click ‘Find Available Times’ and available options will appear. Click ‘Select’ next to the available time you’d like to sit your exam.
Confirm your selection by clicking ‘Schedule’.
Your exam is now scheduled for this time. Click ‘My Sessions’ to return to dashboard.
Your scheduled exam/s will appear here and there will be a countdown timer showing you how long until your next exam. You can see more information about your upcoming exam/s below.
At any time, you can cancel or reschedule your exam/s.
If you have multiple Live invigilated exams, repeat this process for your other exams.
What happens on the day?
On the day, the timer beside your scheduled exam will run down to zero and be replaced by ‘Start Session’ when you are due to start your sitting.
To connect with your proctor who will supervise your exam, click ‘Start Session’. Your proctor will then guide you through the startup process, including verifying your identity, securing your environment, and running a remote access applet that will allow you and your proctor to communicate and help ensure the academic integrity of your exam. Head to the online invigilated exams page for more information on the remote access applet.
Make sure you allow an extra 5 to 20 minutes to complete this startup process in addition to the time you spend on your exam. This time won’t be taken away from your exam time, and your exam timer won’t start until you’re in your exam in the learning management system used for your subject, either Blackboard (UTSOnline) or Canvas.
After your exam you'll be asked to complete a short survey about your online experience. We encourage you to complete this survey.
