Identification Policy 

The Strategy Institute (TSI) exams are real-time proctored, and delivered in the private mode where exam-takers can take ABSP™ or SBSP™ exams in the convenience of personal spaces – like home or office – after getting their computer/desktop/laptop and exam room ExamStrong™ verified for the exam readiness. 

While scheduling the examination, exam-takers must submit details of two valid, non-expired Government-issued identification documents only then the proctor admits the candidate to take up the exam. 

The IDs must be original, valid, and current (not expired) on the exam day. One of the IDs must be a photo ID with their legal name as well as a signature present on it. The exam-takers legal name on the ID must exactly match the first and last name on their myTSI dashboard. 

Both IDs must be issued by the country in which the exam-takers are testing. If exam-takers do not have a qualifying primary ID issued from the country testing in, an International Travel Passport from their country of citizenship is required, along with a secondary ID. 

List of acceptable IDs 

  • Government-issued driver's license
  • Passport 
  • Military ID 
  • State/country ID card 
  • Employee/school ID 

The candidate must present their ID to the proctor on-screen during the ID verification process on exam day. If there is any discrepancy in the ID presented or the ID does not fulfill one or more requirements from above, the remote proctor has the right to refuse entry into the exam zone on the platform. 

If the candidate appears for the exam with a photocopy or scan of their ID, an expired ID, or a different ID than what exam-takers have submitted at the time of scheduling the exam, the proctor will not approve their entry to take up the exam. 

It is also recommended that exam-takers ensure the exam room is well-lit and their webcam has a good resolution to ensure a smooth verification process.
