Candidates will be able to have a first look at the examination system Wiseflow which will be used for the e-EQE 2021 by means of a mock examination between 22 December 2020 and 28 February 2021 (Mock 1).
Mock 1 is intended for candidates to test their equipment and get acquainted with the examination environment. Candidates will be able to access the respective mock papers according to their current enrolment to the EQE 2021 papers. There will be no proctoring during Mock 1.
To allow candidates to test the system also close to the real examination conditions, a second mock took place in the week of 1-5 February 2021. The examination papers took place during that week on the same weekdays and times as the real examination. A third mock (Mock 3) takes place on 23 February 2021 to further allow participants to test their equipment in close-to-real conditions.
In order to maintain continuity during the COVID-19 pandemic, educational institutions around the world have been implementing digital solutions for both the classroom and examinations.
Following the cancellation of the EQE 2020, and in view of the ever-increasing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the Supervisory Board decided in July that the EQE 2021 would be conducted online. An e-EQE task force was set up, along with a working group consisting of EPO staff and epi members to oversee and support progress.
The transition to the new e-EQE began with a market study aimed at identifying the product which best meets EQE requirements. Once a decision on the product was taken, further tests were carried out with a larger group of test persons, mostly professional representatives. Thereafter, the protected environment was open to candidates for testing as of end December 2020.
Security is a key element in any online examination. Candidates may rest assured that all possible steps are being taken to ensure that the e-EQE complies with the most stringent data protection requirements.
If you have any questions about any aspect of the e-EQE, please contact the EQE helpdesk (email@example.com). We will use your questions as the basis for FAQs, which will be published in due course.
In the meantime, watch this space for updates on the e-EQE.
