Submitting your exam 

Once you are ready to submit your exam, click Submit on the final summary page. You can access this page by clicking the tick icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen. If your exam time expires, you will automatically be taken to this page and will no longer be able to access any of the other pages of the exam. After you click Submit, you will see a countdown on screen telling you that the Inspera Exam Portal is closing. At the end of the countdown, your microphone, camera and screen will stop recording. A new window will open, indicating that the recording of your exam and supervision data is being uploaded. Do not close this window. It works in the background to upload the remainder of your exam but nothing further is recorded.
