Exam Registration

Test Day

In-person Testing

On testing day, you should arrive at the testing center about 30 minutes earlier than the scheduled appointment. This will give you the needed time to complete the check-in process. When you arrive, you will be asked to sign in and present a valid form of photo ID to the proctor. If you fail to bring your ID, you will not be able to take the exam.

Personal items are not allowed in the testing room, so they must be stored in a secure locker outside the testing area. This includes your cell phone, wallet, keys, and accessories.

Just before the exam starts, you will be given a brief tutorial on the testing system.

Remote Testing

On the day of the exam, you should log into your testing account between 15 and 30 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time. The proctor will ask you to show a valid form of government-issued photo ID, and they will ask you to scan your surroundings using your webcam.

Once your exam begins, you cannot leave the webcam view, take breaks, or talk to yourself. Your focus must be on the exam, and other people must be out of your testing space while you take the exam.

Should the proctor determine that you are not following the guidelines for remote proctoring, your exam can be canceled, and your registration fees forfeited.

How the Exam is Scored

Your OSAT score is determined by taking your raw score (the number of questions you answered correctly) and converting it to a scaled score. To pass, you will need to get a minimum scaled score of 240.

You will receive your official score report within four weeks after testing.
