At the time of compiling, 4, 593 candidates have successfully submitted electronic examinations using the Online Testing Platform. Electronic examinations have been going very smoothly for those territories that started the E-test experience in 2016 with the CCSLC Pre-tests and later with the 2017 January CSEC examinations. Some of the newer E-testing centres have encountered challenges administering the tests. These include, network setup, Internet connectivity issues, bandwidth issues, uninterrupted power supply issues, log-on issues, and accessing the test platform.
CXC wishes to emphasise that training of invigilators and repeated testing of the centres are crucial to the success of the e-testing, notwithstanding the hardware requirements, bandwidth, uninterrupted and power and Internet connections.
