National psychology exam online proctoring

The National Psychology Exam will be offered by dual-delivery for the May 2021 exam sitting.

Dual-delivery means that you can choose to sit the exam in a test centre (where available) or by online proctoring (OLP). OLP allows you to sit the exam in the safety of your home or workplace (where available).

You can register for an exam at any of the open testing centres across Australia and should circumstances at the test centre change, you can change your registration to OLP (and vice versa).

OLP is a good choice if you prefer to sit the exam at home, are computer savvy, or for health or other personal reasons, do not feel safe to attend a testing centre.

Sitting the exam in a test centre (where available) is a good choice if you don’t have a quiet space to sit the exam at home or are not confident with computer technology.

We will provide information about the delivery options for the August and November exams closer to registration period for these exams, as we understand more about the ongoing effects of the pandemic.

If you are an exam candidate or a supervisor, we encourage you to review our FAQs below about online proctoring to help you understand the rules and requirements for OLP and to help you determine the best exam option for you. It includes information about the OLP experience, how to prepare for the exam and what to expect during the exam.
