What is an Entry Code?
An entry code is a unique code you generate for your candidates so they can access the test portal. The candidate enters their entry code on the test portal home page.
Before the test starts, the candidate will be prompted to enter their details. This creates their account in the portal.
This method is useful for creating a large number of entries quickly, without having to input the candidate details yourself. Candidate's input their own details into a form before starting the test.
If a candidate is taking more than one test or component they can use multiple entry codes. When they enter their personal details the portal will detect whether they already have an account and will add the new test to their existing account.
Candidates must ensure that they enter their email address and phone number accurately to make sure that any new tests are added to their existing account.
You can upload up to 500 entries at one time using this method. Additional entries can be added to the session using the same method if required.
