Navigation guidelines for the Invigilation App

In order to ensure that all students that will be seamlessly making use of the Invigilator app for their upcoming exams, we would like to stress the importance of the following important pertinent points to remember:

  1. Students can establish whether or not their module is invigilated by the Invigilator app, by clicking on The Invigilator (invigilatorapp.herokuapp.com). If none of a student’s modules are invigilated, then s/he will not be able to register on the Invigilator App.
  2. It is important that students download and register on the Invigilator app at least three days in advance of their first examination. The Invigilator app is available on the Google Play Store, the Apple App Store and Huawei App Gallery. This provides an opportunity to resolve any challenges associated with registration prior to the examinations.
  3. Watch the training videos https://vimeo.com/607264524 and perform the mock examination on page 8 of The Invigilator app Student User Guide at Invigilator app student guidelines. It is crucial to register in advance and perform the demo test in order to ensure you cellphone is correctly set-up and you know what to expect. We reiterate please do so three days before your scheduled invigilated examination.
