Exam Security

IBCA’s exam security policies are designed to ensure the integrity of the proctored exam, allowing no room for tampering with the exam's quality or the entire exam process. Candidates must acknowledge and agree to follow IBCA’s security policies and procedures, which allows them to have an equal opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge on exam day without being disadvantaged in any way.

Ensuring exam security

The following are the most important security policies and procedures:

  • Maintaining professional conduct at all times. Avoiding any kind of behavior that could be deemed suspicious.
  • Not making copies or clicking photos of CIBP™ exam questions or exam materials.
  • Avoid posting CIBP™ exam content on any public Internet site or distributing printed copies in any private or public forum

Since IBCA exams are online and available across the globe, candidates are requested to read IBCA’s exam policies and procedures carefully to avoid any kind of unintentional breach of security.

Consequences of violating Exam Security Policies

In the event that it is determined that a candidate has purposefully sought an unfair advantage or compromised the integrity of the exam, the proctor will prohibit them from taking the exam or from continuing with it. The proctor’s decision will be final and binding.

Submit a Formal Complaint
