What is a remote proctor?
An IELTS invigilator who will monitor your Listening, Reading and Writing test online.
Why do we need remote proctors?
Remote proctors replace invigilators in a test centre. Having remote proctor ensure the test maintains the high security standards set by IELTS and trusted by recognising organisations.
Will I see the remote proctor?
No. They will only interrupt the test if something seems wrong, or if you raise your hand to take a bathroom break.
Can I speak to the proctor?
You will not need to speak to the proctor. The only time you will need to contact them is if you are taking a bathroom break. To do so, you will need to raise your hand and wait for the proctor to contact you.
Why is there no remote proctor for my Speaking test?
Your Speaking test takes place in real time, face-to-face with an IELTS examiner online—so they can perform all the necessary checks themselves.
How do I know the proctor can’t still see me after the test?
The proctors will only remain active for the duration of your test. Once your time is up, both you and the proctor will exit the Inspera Exam Portal and access to your camera will be stopped.
