Written Exams

Nokia ONC written exams are delivered through Nokia's test delivery partner, Pearson VUE. Exams are offered in a secure and proctored environment with global test sites. Written exams can be attempted in any order. All exams are offered in English only. If candidates fail to pass a written exam, there is no waiting period required before re-taking the exam and no limit on how many times an exam can be rewritten. It may take up to five (5) business days for Nokia to receive an exam result from the test center. Once Nokia has received the result for your ONC exam, we will send you an acknowledgment of your result and post the result to your personalized Student Portal page.

For more information on scheduling, see the Nokia Learning Services Written Exam Registration Guide.
