Permitted testing aids

When you report for the test, you must bring your:

Test centres

Clocks are provided in the test room. Candidates may wear an analogue wristwatch, but any alarm or stopwatch features must be switched off.

Valuables such as wallets, keys and mobile phones may be placed under the desk during the test. Mobile phones must be switched off and placed face up under the desk. Mobile phones must not be worn on the body and must not be accessed during the test.

Candidates are advised to bring only essential items, as neither the test centre nor the LAT Office can be held responsible for the security of their belongings. There will be only limited space to store bags and candidates will not be allowed to access their bags until the end of the test.

Remote proctoring

Your desk must be clear of all items including mobile phones. You can have your mobile phone in your test room in case your proctor needs to reach you by calling your mobile phone when you experience technical issues such as internet drop-out during your test session. However, you are not allowed to use your mobile phone in any other circumstances during your test session. This includes making or receiving calls during the test session. You may have a clear bottle or glass of water with you at your desk and one blank A4 piece of paper for rough working. No other people, including dependent children, or animals (pets) are permitted in the test room (unless candidates have been granted relevant reasonable adjustments).

All other items, including but not limited to calculators, dictionaries, iPods, iPads, tablets, digital watches, smart watches, smart glasses, pencil cases, rulers, highlighters, audio or recording electronic devices of any kind, are prohibited and their use will be considered an act of misconduct.

Access to food (including sweets and nuts), earplugs, medication or other medical equipment (e.g. support cushion) during the test will only be permitted due to a medical condition and can only be allowed if candidates have been granted relevant reasonable adjustments.
