Information about the online admission test
To take the online admission test you need a stable internet connection and a computer (laptop or stand PC) with keyboard, internet browser and camera (webcam). On the evening before the day with your test date you will receive two emails with the necessary links for the online admissions test. Please note:
The first email with the subject “Zoom Link” contains the link to the video chat platform Zoom. Enter the virtual Zoom room at the beginning of your test appointment via this link. You will then receive all further information in the Zoom room. The identity check and the test supervision are done via Zoom as well. For this the camera function is required.
The second email with the subject “Invitation to online assessment” sent from firstname.lastname@example.org contains the link to the online admissions test. You can open the admissions test by clicking on the link. Do not open the admissions test until the supervisor expressly asks you to do so. While you are taking the admissions test, the test supervision is done via Zoom.
If you have problems to open one of these links by clicking on it, please copy the link into your browser and open the page that way.
If you have not received both emails on the day of your test appointment, please also check your spam folder. If the emails are not there either, please contact us at email@example.com.
Test supervision via Zoom
How can you install Zoom or check if you’ve already installed it?
Zoom offers a test meeting under the following link: https://zoom.us/test. There you can check if you have already installed Zoom. If not, you will be asked to install Zoom. Follow this prompt and install Zoom on your computer.
How do I get into the virtual exam room on Zoom?
Please join the Zoom meeting (see the link above) a few minutes before your appointment. You will be taken to a waiting room and will then be admitted to the meeting on time. Use your first and last name at Zoom and leave your webcam and microphone turned off at the beginning. In the meeting room you will receive further information on how to take the test.
How are identity checks and test supervision carried out?
The test supervision and the control of your proof of identity is done via Zoom. You will need a computer with camera (webcam). Place the device in front of you. The camera must be activated and pointed at you to enable supervision during the entire test. At the beginning you have your ID card with photo ready for the identity check.
After the identity check, the supervisor will explain to you how to pass the admission test. Afterwards the supervisor will explicitly ask you to open the admission test.
You do not have a computer with a camera?
The Zoom video chat platform also works on tablets and smartphones via the “ZOOM Cloud Meetings” app. If you do not have a camera on your computer, install this app on your mobile device. Have your smartphone or tablet with camera ready and go to Zoom on that device. Place the device in front of you. The camera must be activated and pointed at you so that you can keep an eye on this device throughout the test.
Even if the test supervision is done via your smartphone, you will still need a computer (laptop or stand PC) with a keyboard and a stable Internet connection to complete the online admission test.
