ANNUAL PAPER & PENCIL TEST
The Day of the Paper & Pencil Exam
Admission to the Test Site
Only the candidate who has applied for and been found eligible to take the examination will be admitted to the test site.
Candidates will be required to show their admission ticket and a photo ID.
Examination procedures will begin at 9:00 a.m. local time on the testing date. Candidates must report to the test site by 8:30 a.m. for check-in.
Three hours are allotted for the examination. Please be advised that a candidate may take only one examination per test administration date. The exam is specified in the eligibility letter and on the admission ticket.
All NCC certification examinations are administered from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
NCC allows candidates to bring a battery-operated noiseless, non-programmable calculator to the test site.
On the day of the examination, an NCC representative will be available to assist you with any problem from 7 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Central Time. Call (312) 951-0207.
Lost Admission Tickets
If you misplace your ticket, report to the test site at the scheduled exam time. Make sure you bring a photo ID with your name and signature. You will be asked to submit an affidavit of identification that will be submitted to NCC.
The proctor at your test site has three primary functions:
maintaining security of the examination,
providing an orderly processing of candidate credentials for admittance to the examination, and
facilitating an optimal testing environment for candidates.
Proctors are there to help you. If during the examination, there is an environmental problem, please let the proctor know. S/he cannot help you if the problem is not identified. Proctors cannot assist you with interpretation of examination content.
While every effort is made to provide a comfortable environment, individual temperature responses or facility management beyond the proctor’s control can make the site too hot or too cold for your individual taste. Please bring a sweater or jacket that you can remove or put on as needed.
If you lose your admission ticket, bring your photo ID to the test site
at your scheduled exam time.
