My Test Won’t Load  

If clicking the test link results in an error message, please switch to a Chrome browser, then copy & paste the test link URL directly into the Chrome browser rather than clicking on it.    

  
Devices & Software  

All tests must be accessed using a laptop or desktop computer. The test cannot be taken using a mobile phone or tablet. Acceptable browsers include the latest versions of Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge.  

  
Webcam   

All Accountests tests are proctored, which uses a candidate’s camera to capture images throughout the duration of the test in order to prevent cheating. Candidates must have and allow access to a webcam or they won’t be able to complete the test. More information on Proctoring can be found here  

  

  

Proctoring Technical Troubleshooting  

For candidates experiencing technical difficulties with proctoring during their online tests.  

  

Camera Failing to Initialize on the Reference Photo Step:  

Candidates may encounter issues with their cameras not starting up during the reference photo step, where the camera requests access for the first time.  

Troubleshooting steps include:  

  1. Checking browser permissions to ensure access to the camera.  
  2. Verifying if the candidate's device is in "Do Not Disturb" mode, particularly relevant for Apple devices.  
  3. Updating the browser to the latest version if the issue persists.  
  4. Advising candidates to switch browsers, with Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari (excluding Safari for Windows) being acceptable options.  
  5. Verifying hardware functionality by using the device's camera app or connecting an external webcam if necessary.  

   

Camera Drops Out Mid-Test:  

In the event of a camera dropout mid-test an automated reconnection system is in place. Reconnection attempts will run for approximately 30 seconds. If the system fails to reconnect automatically, the test will stop and be auto-submitted.  

Possible causes include:  

  • internet connection dropouts  
  • Windows features running health checks  
  • issues with device hardware.
