Asked to enter a resume code during the identification process

If there are issues with your microphone and camera, or your microphone and camera permissions are not set correctly, you should be prompted at the beginning of your exam to go to your computer's Settings and set your permissions correctly. You may also be prompted to provide a resume code when trying to authenticate using ExamID or when entering the monitored exam after authentication.

ExamID and ExamMonitor require camera and microphone permissions in order to correctly invigilate the exam.

  1. In the first instance, close out of Examplify and check your machine has the correct permissions enabled:
  2. Once you have confirmed the correct permissions are enabled, please attempt to start the exam again.
  3. If you have confirmed that your permissions are correct but you receive the message again, reboot your machine then attempt to start the exam again.
