The Exam Portal allows schools and education bodies the ability to cut costs in many aspects of a schools/examination bodies budget, by saving money on Human Readers for each individual student or requiring additional invigilators and venues.

Exam Portal standardizes the examination, thus learners are not advantaged or disadvantaged by human readers. The Exam Portal Solution has been used at the highest level by various examinations bodies to conduct NSC examinations for learners with reading and computer accommodations for the past 6 years.
