How to participate

You will take the test from home on your own computer. During the test you will be connected to your uniTEST- supervisor, who will ensure that the uniTEST is completed in accordance with regulations. 

Participation from home makes demands on your computer as well as your physical surroundings. Therefore, it is important that you go through the information and steps listed below. 

The test runs in ACER TestApp while you are connected to your online test supervisor via screensharing in Zoom. Therefore, you have to download both applications in advance. You will not be able to open the actual test until your test supervisor gives you access. 

Furthermore, you must make sure that your computer and internet connection meet the requirements.

When taking the uniTEST, your physical surroundings must meet certain requirements.  It’s important that you comply with these guidelines, otherwise you will unfortunately not be able to take the uniTEST.

It is like an exam, only at home.

Among other things you must sit alone during the test, and there are rules of what items you can have on your desk.

Tips for preparing

uniTEST is not about your knowledge but your competencies. This limits how much you can prepare for the test.

Still, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the type of test you'll be taking. This way, you'll have a better idea of how to approach the questions and make the most of your time.

#1: Prepare for the test form

You can try a series of questions from uniTEST, so you are prepared for how the questions are designed. Download the questions (.pdf)

#2: Move on instead of getting stuck

There is only a limited amount of time for each question, so it’s important that you do not get stuck on a question that is difficult for you to answer. Rather, make a guess and move on. You can always return to the question if you have time to spare. 

#3: A wrong answer does not count against your score

Therefore, it is better to provide an answer than to skip a question altogether.

#4: Train your reading speed

Before the questions, you will typically have to read a passage that contains the information you need to answer the questions. Therefore, it’s a good idea to train and optimise your reading speed – especially if you aren’t an avid reader. For example, read a lot of books, newspapers and articles in the period leading up to the test.

Terms and conditions

For example, if you have technical issues with your computer or the test, or you experience other things that disturb you in a way that prevents you from or delays your answering the questions, you must make your uniTEST supervisor aware of this as soon as possible.

Technical requirements 

It is your responsibility to ensure that your computer meets the technical requirements. You are responsible for checking that your computer's setup and Internet connection are compatible with remote proctoring. 

Test security 

The University of Southern Denmark is obliged to ensure the quality of admission. This includes ensuring the applicant has obtained the uniTEST result correctly. Therefore, SDU will inspect that the applicant has not received any unlawful help during the test. 

Given that uniTEST is a multiple-choice questionnaire with only one correct answer per question, without the possibility of providing supplementary comments, it is crucial that the applicant has no option of communicating with others during the test. The purpose of online uniTEST supervisors is to ensure that uniTEST is not handed in by a third party and to ensure that the applicant has not received any assistance during the test. 

No personal information is processed unless the applicant, by choice or accident, shares information on the web camera, verbally or on-screen. SDU registers personal data in accordance with the general data protection regulation, specifically paragraph 6, sub-section 1. 


If you cheat, you risk never being allowed to study at SDU. At worst, you could get permanently expelled from university – even if you have not been enrolled at the university before. 

Your actions will be considered as cheating if you: 

  • Attempt to circumvent, disable or otherwise obstruct the purpose of the University's use of electronic proctoring programs 
  • Fail to disclose 
  • Are misleading about your own efforts or results 
  • Take part in unauthorised collaborations 
  • Receive help during the test or help others  - including use of chatbots
  • Wrongfully have prior knowledge of the test 
  • Provide incorrect attendance information.
Criminal circumstances 

SDU would like to point out that the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) is the copyright owner of uniTEST. According to their rules, it is deemed criminal if you copy or share content from the uniTEST. Copyright infringement in any way will be punished under copyright law. 

Suspicion of document forgery and identity fraud will be reported to the police and may be punished under the rules of the criminal code.
