The photo taken on the day of the test, as well as the candidate’s result, name, date of birth and gender will be available on the secure Online Results Verification website for use by organisations wishing to verify a result. Candidates will be able to control who can access their result and view their photo.
When candidates register to take the exam, they will be asked to sign to give their consent for the photograph. If candidates are under 18, their parent(s)/guardian(s) will need to give consent.
The photos will be taken using special software provided by Cambridge English Language Assessment, and at all times the files and photos will be stored securely and will only be accessible by authorised centre staff using a login. For additional security, all files will be encrypted. Once the photos have been transferred to Cambridge English Language Assessment ’s secure Online Results Verification site, all local copies of the encrypted files will be deleted.
This new regulation is one of a series of measures that have been introduced by Cambridge Cambridge English Language Assessment in order to further enhance the security and integrity of the Cambridge English: Advanced examination.
