Proctored examinations are taken in the presence of a proctor. Proctoring ensures that all students take the exam on the same day, at the same time, and under the same conditions. In addition, it ensures that no student receives any unfair advantage over others during an examination. The proctor is responsible for ensuring that only one exam copy is used by each student and that students do not use notes or other materials during the exam. The proctor also monitors the behaviour of students during this time to ensure compliance with university policies and procedures.
