Uploading your Bar Exam File
Remote Exam Upload Process:
If you have reached the allotted time limit, you will be shown the following screen and the upload process will begin.
If you still have time but are ready to submit your assessment, you can click Finish or click Home Menu and select Submit Exam.
You will notice that the Monitoring eyebrow will remain on and your camera light will remain on until you click the checkbox and click Submit Exam.
After clicking Submit Exam, you will see a screen indicating your answer file is being prepared and uploaded.
If your files take some time to upload, you will see a yellow screen telling you that your answer file has been uploaded and proctoring files are still uploading. You can click Return to Dashboard if you need to take another assessment. If not, stay on this screen until the progress bar is at 100%.
When the progress bar reaches 100%, you will see the green screen and can return to Dashboard.
If you choose to return to dashboard on the yellow screen, you can see if your proctoring files are still in Upload status. The green arrow will continue to move if the files are uploading. ExamMonitor requires a minimum of a 2 MB upload speed. Uploading a 90-minute exam on a 2 MB upload connection will take approximately 10 minutes. Most exams, however, will upload in 2-3 minutes on an average of 10 MB upload. You must keep Examplify open with internet access for the upload to process.
Once the answer file and the proctoring files have completed uploading, your file status will change and go to the Completed section with a green checkmark. At this point, you may close Examplify and shut off your computer and/or internet connection.
Onsite Exam Upload Process:
Once you have exited the exam, if you have an internet connection, Examplify will auto-upload your answer file(s).
If you do not have an internet connection at this time, then Examplify will inform you that the exam is complete. Click ‘Return to Dashboard’. Once you arrive at a location with an Internet connection, turn on the computer. Connect to the Internet and click the Examplify icon. Once Examplify opens, the answer files will automatically upload, if not, click ‘Retry Upload’.
How to Upload Your Answer Files After the Exam:
- Once you arrive at your home, hotel or other location with Internet connectivity, turn on the computer.
- Connect to the Internet and click on the ‘Examplify’ icon, if it not already open.
If you clicked ‘Return to Dashboard’ earlier on the blue screen stating “Exam Complete – Upload by Deadline”, you will be returned to the Examplify Home Screen seen below. Once you are connected to a good internet connection, click on the green ‘Retry Upload’ button, and you will get the successfully uploaded green check mark. You will need to repeat this process for each file.
Note: Your Answer Files must be uploaded by the deadline specified by your jurisdiction. You can check the deadline by searching for your jurisdiction information here.
If you are unable to upload your answer files via Examplify, you will need to manually upload your answer files. Refer to step “How to Manually Upload Your Answer File” below.
Confirming the Upload of Your Answer Files:
Once completed you will receive the green confirmation screen. If you saw the green confirmation screen while exiting Examplify, your file has been uploaded. You can also confirm by checking for the ‘Exam Uploaded’ indication below the exam name. Additional confirmations such as emails, texts, and the exam history may take up to 15 minutes to be received.
