If you did sign up for the examination here is the tools you need to get yourself ready for the exam, please ensure you do all these before your exam date

A laptop or computer set with webcam & a strong battery or UPS

It’s very important because your exam may last for 2-3 hours especially for POP exams, having a strong battery will help you when you run out of power, please before the main exam date try to use a standby generating set if you do not trust your area electricity (  I will explain the reason why you should do so)

Make sure your computer has a webcam if it does not have you can buy a detachable webcam along any computer shop in town (it should be about 2000 Naira)

A Strong Internet Connection

This is the second requirement for you, you can not afford to be disconnected from your exam, this is your future we are talking about here, NOUN on-demand Virtual Examination was newly introduced and might have some few issues, do not add more to it, inquire on the best network around your area, buy the sim, please use a modem or Wi-Fi, you can ask friends around do not use a mobile phone hotspot but if you insist on using your mobile phone

Make sure no one has that new number and let it be the only sim on your phone this is because if your mobile phone is dual sim there are chances your friends might call you during exam and this can disconnect your internet,  stopping your exam, its done for you, 

If you are using your phone let it be a 4G mobile phone, please also keep it far away from the view of the webcam
