Enrolling candidates for examinations

A teacher, parent or candidate aged 18 or over can enrol individuals or groups for Written exams through AMEB Connect.


Candidate Exam Key and password

Once an exam is purchased, the candidate will be issued with an Exam Key, a unique code which gives access to the practice and official exam when used with the correct exam PIN. The exam centre is access via the AMEB ONLINE website. Please note the Exam Key expires twelve months after purchase.


Benefits of Online Theory exams include:

1. Online theory exam enrolments valid for twelve months
Enrolments remain active for twelve months from date of purchase or until the exam is completed, whichever is first. This means that teachers can choose the best day for each individual or group to sit the exam, based on preparedness and schedules.
2. Practice exam opportunities
Once enrolled, students can take a practice exam to familisarise themselves with the Exam Tools.
3. Quick results
For lower grades the overall result is available immediately on completion. For higher grades, exams are marked manually by an examiner five or six business days after completing the exam, the candidate will receive an email notifying him/her that the exam has been marked. Certificates are sent to successful candidates in the mail after completion.

Practice exams

Candidates can log in to the system using their Exam Key and Eam PIN to take practice exams at any time. Practice exams are timed and candidates can work through the questions in any order.

Exam certificates

Results for online theory exams are received by AMEB Victoria weekly and certificates are mailed to the enrolling person in the usual way. The result will also appear on the teacher’s history of candidate results, which the teacher can view online if registered for AMEB Connect.
