Independently Invigilated Exams

Mobius Institute has recently (April 2023) updated the independently invigilated exam process to assist students in understanding the requirements, and allowing them to prioritise the online exam setups for Training Partners.

The exam date has been removed from the independently invigilated exam application form. Students are now setup with a practice exam as soon as the application is received, and sent an email advising that we will ensure that payment has been received, obtain the invigilation declaration and check the language is available for the selected category. Additionally Mobius Institute will advise students that they should have received access to the practice exam so that they can ensure they are comfortable with the system prior to their certification exam.

Once all required steps have been completed the student and invigilator will be emailed to advise they can now arrange the exam session on a day/time suitable for them.
