First of all, note that you are allowed to wear earplugs to help you concentrate. If you wish to request accommodation measures, you must do so when registering for the examination. For information on how to do so, see the “Notification and registration” section at Convocation et examen
Starting in September 2017, accommodation measures will be possible in Montréal and Quebec City.
If there is more than one table, check the signs above the tables, bearing a sequence of letters corresponding to candidates’ family names on the list (e.g. if your name is Smith, go to the table under the sign reading “Sa to Tz” or "R to Z").
The sequences of letters depend on the number of registration tables and the number of candidates. They vary from one examination site to another.
The professional examination cannot be cancelled simply because of bad weather or road conditions (a road or bridge suddenly closed), out of respect for other candidates who have paid for travel and accommodation to attend the examination. Under certain circumstances, only the Order can cancel the examination, and it will be cancelled for all candidates.
Note, first of all, that it is impossible to reach the invigilators at the examination site.
We recommend that you document the incident that prevented you from reaching the examination (e.g. accident report, etc.) and contact the Registrar’s office and examinations as soon as possible. You can also consult the OIIQ website Convocation et examen
We suggest that you bring some food just in case you can’t buy something there. You will be able to buy food at most examination sites. However, you will have a break of just 60 minutes between the two parts of the written examination.
Before the examination starts, the OIIQ will issue you all the materials you need for the examination. You may also have a snack and a drink on your examination table. Any other personal effects must be placed at the assigned places. You will be given instructions at the time.
The OIIQ will be taking the necessary steps to avoid any plagiarism or cheating during the examination. Invigilators will be patrolling the examination room at all times.
In fact this is much more than simply signing in. We must confirm your identity.
Go to the table marked by the letter corresponding to your family name, and show your piece of photo identification. An invigilator will then give you further instructions.
We strongly suggest that you go to the washroom before registering, since once you are in the examination room, you will have to wait until after the examination begins, and will have to be accompanied to go to the washroom.
