ISLPR Online Test

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we developed an online version of the ISLPR test. The overall format of the online test is similar to the face-to-face test, however, the interview is conducted via video conferencing software and the writing test is completed electronically within our custom made software. Given the difference in the way the test is administered, the rules, terms and conditions of the online test differ from the face-to-face test. To learn more about the ISLPR test format, click here. Please note: when booking an online test appointment, all appointment times are AEST.

Important to note:

You will receive a link to join the test via email. You must open this link only once. When you click the link, the online test will open and will prompt you to join the video conference. Once you have joined the video conference, you should then have two tabs open: (1) the online test and (2) the Google Meet tab. All other tabs or windows should be closed.

It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the online test rules and terms & conditions before applying to take the test. You will be asked to confirm that you are familiar with the procedures when you submit your application form. No refunds will be given to candidates who are unable to use the third-party software, i.e., Google Chrome, Google Meet and picture-in-picture. You can read the full set of instructions, rules and T&Cs here:
