When can you write the Engineering Test?

We are pleased to announce that our engineering test will be online from the 3rd of July. We offer this service for your safety. 
You may write the test at your home, the school or police station or at any venue where you can arrange for a computer. You may use any desktop or laptop if you can ensure the following:
 
  1. A quiet room - not you or anyone else is allowed to enter or leave
  2. A stable network
  3. A webcam
  4. Enough data (at least 5 GB)
  5. Cellphone with data

 There are a limited number of places available. There are two sessions scheduled on specific days - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Prepare to be busy for at least 3 hours.
We will communicate via e-mail how the test will be conducted.
