Unlock Test Mail: (attachment saved in its3\2010\keyskills)
Dear Bob and Sam,

This year, you can unlock key skills & Adult Numeracy tests for all candidates. You only can unlock test prior to 3/4 hours of the tests. So for a test at 2 pm, unfortunately you can not unlock it 9 am in the morning.  

It should work fine but in case if you face any problem in server or any kind of error message, please call me on 235 instantly and please DO NOT do anything as if server getting closed or interrupted, all current running tests will be interrupted. Please find the attachment file for graphical instruction and I will go through with both you for more details.

Please be sure that, only Sam and Bob can see the icon in 'application launcher' and NO other teaching or support staff can see the Test Unlock icon apart from the IT Services.

IT Services can also unlock the tests.

Feel free to call me on 235
