Prometric, provider of test development and delivery solutions, today announced that it recorded over 3 lakh computer-based academic admission tests being taken, with the conclusion of a two-month testing window. These were admissions tests for gaining entry into post-graduate programmes in India.
Prometric also works with Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and National Board of Examinations (NBE) to administer a series of business and medical postgraduate admissions tests including the Common Admission Test (CAT) and National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for Postgraduates (NEET-PG).
"Prometric has been following these established global best practices of computer-based testing for decades, and we are committed to protecting the experience of genuine candidates and ensuring that nobody has an unfair advantage. Our ID Management Solutions help safeguard against fraudulent test-takers by allowing us to verify the identities of individuals and identify those who had previously taken a test with us," said Michael Brannick, President and CEO of Prometric.
Similar to academic exams, Prometric conducts year-round admission tests through its network of about 8,000 test centres in more than 160 countries. Soumitra Roy, Managing Director, Prometric India said that working with temporary test centres and public infrastructure meant that they had to be extremely diligent in resolving any operational and technical issues as they surface during the test, in order to ensure every single candidate gets the opportunity to test within the fixed window.
