How to Install the SecureClient

SecureClient allows you to deliver high-stakes, summative assessments to centres with slow or intermittent internet connections, safeguarding against loss of data and minimising candidate disruption. In addition, SecureClient locks-down candidates' PCs so that no other programs (such as Google Chrome, Windows Explorer, or Microsoft Office) can be accessed for the duration of the test. This guide provides the step-by-step process for installing SecureClient.

On the Surpass Home Page, select 'Deliver Test' at the bottom of the screen.
