the exam isn't too bad. just make sure you revise the


They are so busy they don't reply to emails. After I'd paid the £30 deposit, they emailed me the night before the exam, with a confirmation I was entered including the 'zoom' meeting yes and password.

This email also included a refined syllabus of what was on the exam.
Thank you so much! I have really been revising and going over things and trying to remember, I just haven't done this in so long that I hope my brain can remember it all ha! Okay so if you said they didn't email till night before than I'll be patient and hope they get back to me. Do you know anything about the devices and screens they want open etc as in the layout of how you sit the exam?

On the email received from them it stated that you should use a laptop and you will need to log into google classrooms and zoom.

They let me know the night before the exam, so fingers crossed you will hear from them by this evening. Did you previously sit your biology with them or is this the first time you have used them?

so I used my laptop. I turned off all notifications and programs including FaceTime, so I had no interruptions.

you need to download the app ZOOM. create an account.
you need a google account

the email will instruct you to log into ZOOM at 2.15pm. the email should include a ZOOM meeting yes and a passcode

you will then be connected to the invigilator. You need to have your identification ready. This is the ID that you have already emailed an image of to equivalency testing.

the invigilator will then send you an email linking you to google classrooms where you simply CLICK on your exam. BIOLOGY higher and enter your email adresss. then the exam will begin.

Good Luck

Thank you so much, this is incredibly helpful!

Sorry to be a pain, but when I did my maths with them (this was some time ago) it was in an exam room and if anyone had questions etc they would try to help or explain I'm guessing this does not happen over an online exam right?

Thank you!
Are you allowed to have a piece of paper next to you to write things down at least? I always draw things out etc but I don't want them to think I am cheating

Hi Guys! So I just had my exam and I noticed that on their website it says the exam is out of 126 marks, but when I counted the marks on this exam online it was like 86 or something, I wonder why.

I noticed this a few weeks ago and the only explanation I can come up with is that it takes quite a long time to type and also make sense of visuals on a screen. So I assume they allow you more time per question than if you do the paper exam. 🤷🏻*♀️

I counted 87 but it may have not been an identical exam.
