24 © English Language Testing Ltd Note On Password Test Security Password tests prevent cheating by detecting access to anything outside of the test. Such access is judged to be an attempt to cheat and the test is interrupted. Tests run in “full screen” mode, so access to anything outside of the test can only happen if several keys are pressed at the same time (including the "Win" ( or ), the "Ctrl" ( ) or the "Alt" ( ) key). You only need the keyboard to enter your candidate details at the beginning of the test, and during the writing module writing module if your test has one. ONLY use keyboard letters, numbers & symbols! If you press these keys you risk having your test interrupted. A screen with the following message will appear: If you see this message do not click on anything or use the keyboard. Alert the invigilator immediately and you MAY be allowed to restart your test.
