You can attend the assessment using a computer or a smartphone with a front facing camera.
If you are using a computer you need the following:
An average speed Internet (minimum 256 kbps dedicated) connection.
Internet Browser with latest version of Flash Player installed. All major browsers are supported. No softwares need to be downloaded.
A working webcam that can record video.
A good quality microphone ; inbuilt mic in laptop can be used but do not use mobile phone mic.
All other application running on your computer that might interfere with the ongoing assessment must be closed.
If you are using a smartphone you need to download the application from Android Play Store or iOS App Store. You cannot use the link given to attend the test via internet browser through smartphone. At present, the smartphone applications only supports Asynchronous or Automated Video Interviews and Video Proctored Objective Test. If you get a 'Not Supported" message on entering the verification code in the mobile application and you have been specifically instructed by the prospective employer that the assessment is an essay or code test, you must use a laptop or desktop computer.
Candidates must make sure to test their system prior to the first question for unexpected errors and email a request to conduct the interview again.A plain wall with sufficient lighting for better recording. Candidates can cancel the video interview only in case of a technical error. Ensure that you complete it in advance to avoid last minutes technical snags.

Maintaining eye contact with the camera; this will ensure the illusion of eye contact with the potential interviewer. If you are using a smartphone please ensure that you hold the smartphone at eye level. Please hold the phone still for a seamless interview session.
You could verify your Internet connection speed at various websites dedicated for this task. Here's a link you could use:

As long as you have clicked on the "Finished" button after every question, the answers are safe with us. If the interview is disrupted midway through the recording, you might have to start over that question again.
You can use the same Android or iOS application for Automated Interview and Written Assessment (only MCQ test). However, for Live Interview you need to use a different application, 'Talview Live' which is currently available only on Android.
