Private Supervision

If you live approximately 40+ kms from the nearest College Campus, you can request to have your exam(s) privately supervised (invigilated). However, you may be required to travel to the nearest campus if exceptions apply.

If you are writing your exam(s) outside Canada, you are responsible for the invigilation costs charged by the institution or the individual supervising the exam.

All exams are written within the scheduled time frames from Monday-Thursday starting at 7:00 PM Newfoundland time. Students writing on Atlantic time, write at 6:30 PM, and all other students in other time zones will write as close to the 7:00 PM Newfoundland start time and within Help Desk hours. Some exceptions may apply.

When submitting the Exam Registration Form, please indicate the Community and Province in which you reside.

If there is a designated exam site/invigilator identified within approximately 40 kms of your community, you will be set up to write at that location and will receive an email with the contact information. It is your responsibility to follow-up with that exam site / invigilator at least one week prior to the exam date.
