Before coming to the exam, students must

Do not come on campus if you are sick.

Note: Except for the brief time that their ID is checked, everyone must wear a mask that covers their nose, mouth, and chin the entire time they are in the building. Anyone not wearing a mask or who removes it other than for ID check will be required to leave. We will not provide masks.

Students will be required to provide contact tracing information upon entering the Library building.Students must bring one of the following forms of photo ID to the exam to show proof of identity: 

  • a passport
  • BC Driver's License (international driver's licenses are not accepted)
  • a BC Identification card (BCID)
  • a Photo BC Services Card

Students who do not have one of these forms of ID should contact the LET Coordinator at least 2 days before the exam date by emailing

Please note the following:

  • The ID presented must be current and in the original form; photocopies or scanned/digital copies are not acceptable.
  • Students with a Langara student card should bring it to the exam as well.  In cases where two or more students have similar names, the Langara student card may be needed to confirm the Langara student number for students without receipts.
  • Students who do not present an accepted form of photo ID will not be permitted to write the exam and will have to register for another sitting.  They may not transfer the registration, nor is the registration fee refundable.
  • ID presented should match the name under which the student is registered. 

Photo ID might be held for the duration of the exam.

Students should arrive 15-20 minutes before the start of the exam for registration check.

For security reasons, students may take to their desks only the following items: two pens, their wallet, and their photo ID. No food or drink is allowed in the computer lab.

All other items, including coats and jackets, should be put at the front of the room.

Students should turn off all electronic devices, especially cell phones (a cell phone turned to vibrate is also noisy).

Students will be required to leave all personal belongings—including purses, backpacks, smart watches, and cell phones -- at the side of the exam room.  Langara College cannot take responsibility for the safety of these items; students are advised not to bring valuables to the LET.  Personal items may be reclaimed after the exam is finished.

Once the exam starts, students should not leave the exam room until they have completed and handed in the exam.
