You didn't coordinate among proctors and students, Sir? I think it was probably possible for multiple students to list the same proctor.

This exam is a slightly bigger ask demand of proctors as one can't simply watch the candidates but must also keep an eye on their screens. At my large employer we've discussed how that changes the required student-proctor ratio from about (20-30)-to-1 to more like (4-5)-to-1.

We are coordinating, and we are putting small numbers of students together. But it's still a much larger demand than in the past, where all the students would have been taking it at the same time, with one or two proctors (at a time -- we do shifts) for all of them.

At smaller employers it changes the student-proctor ratio to (1 student)-to-(2 proctors) (includes a backup proctor). A very big ask.

Exactly why I'm going elsewhere. We essentially don't have the staff to spare.
