How to prepare yourself for the entrance examination with remote proctoring

When participating in the uniTEST via remote monitoring it is via your own computer.
Your participation will be monitored via an additional programme called ProctorU, which is a company that has specialised itself in offering online tests and exams.

The deadline for uniTEST registration is March 23, at noon, and here you can select participation in the test from abroad.
You must make sure that your computer matches the technical requirements and you are solely responsible for checking that your computers set-up and internet connection is compatible with the remote monitoring by ProctorU.
If you are taking the test from a public place such as a school, university etc. then firewalls will most likely block your internet connection. It is therefore a good idea to test your equipment and connection in good time and preferably at the location you expect to take the test from.

How to test your equipment

  • Go to www.proctoru.com and create an account. Click on Sign up and state “The University of Southern Denmark” as your institution.
  • Click on www.proctoru.com/testitout/ to do a control test of the computer.
  • Make connection by clicking on “live technician”/”connect to a live person” to make sure that the computer matches the tests requirements.
  • Once you have made sure that your computer is correctly set up, you can proceed in booking a time slot for test completion.
