It measures proficiency in critical thinking, reading, writing and mathematics in the context of humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, and academic skills developed, as opposed to subject knowledge taught, in general education courses. Students have 90 minutes to complete the test consisting of 36 multiple-choice questions.

Proctor U offers students the opportunity to take their online exams from their home through the use of a webcam and a reliable high-speed internet connection.  The student is responsible for payment of all fees incurred as a result of using the ProctorU testing service. Fees will be presented during the online registration process payment can be made with a credit or debit card. Please schedule your exam at least 72 hours before the desired testing date. Cancellations or rescheduling should be done no later than 24hrs of scheduled appointment. NOTE: You should not attempt to take this examination while using a wireless internet connection.
