Invigilator Plus Exam Information

UBSS has made changes to our examinations since moving to online learning in response to COVID-19. Exams that will be held will be delivered via Moodle under examination conditions. There will be no face to face written exams held on campus until further notice.

As per the Certified Practicing Accountant body (CPA) requirements, all universities and Higher Education Institutions accredited with CPA need to undergo invigilated exams. This is to ensure that academic integrity is maintained in assessments. Therefore, UBSS has introduced online invigilated exams using Invigilator Plus software.

Online invigilation is when an exam is supervised or proctored by a real person in real time via your webcam.
