PLEASE NOTE: All students and candidates in the CPA program are required to have access to a laptop computer with at least one USB port for use in all modules.
Securexam runs on PC based laptops only. It cannot be used with Mac/Apple laptops (even if the device is using partitioned drives, or has ‘Boot Camp’ installed), any iOS device or laptops/tablets with detachable keyboards (such as the Microsoft Surface line of tablets), or any netbooks (devices that require the Internet to fully function).
To install Securexam, your laptop must meet these minimum hardware and software requirements:
To use Securexam in the writing centre, you need a free USB port. (You do not need a free USB port to practice with the software or to complete the mandatory qualification exam.)
Earlier versions of Windows will not be supported.
To download the software, upload the qualification exam, and receive emails from Software Secure, Inc., you also require Internet access. Internet access will not be available at exam locations.
You must have administrator rights to install this software. User-level rights will allow you to use the software once it has been installed.
If your employer owns your computer, you must secure employer approval, and/or assistance, to install Securexam in accordance with your employer's policies.
