Use secure and stand-alone Word and Spreadsheet editors in Surpass.

In addition to standard question types, the File Attach item allows candidates to work in secure and stand-alone Word and Spreadsheet editors. These external applications provide additional exam security, locking down candidates’ devices and restricting access to other apps during the exam.

Discover the power of Task Based Simulations.

The Task Based Simulation (TBS) item type in Surpass lets you create complex questions that reflect real world and work-based scenarios, particularly for accountancy and finance exams. Some benefits of this item type include:

  • Auto-marking for consistency across exams.
  • Metadata and binary data points for greater analysis.
  • Reduced costs and increased efficiency in exam creation and delivery.
