Things to follow:

- Select a location where you can remain undisturbed for the entire duration of the examination.
- Adjust the webcam to ensure that your entire face and torso are clearly visible throughout the duration of the assessment.

- The environment around you must be as quiet as possible.
Things to avoid:
- You must not leave the video frame during the exam for any reason.
- The source of light must not be behind you.
- Ensure that there are no people around you.
