What do I do if I experience a lag when typing my answers?

I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced during your exam.

There are three possible fixes for typing lag that usually have to be done together.


1) Disable your firewall and/or anti-virus. Every firewall/antivirus has a different way of disabling it. We have compiled a list of popular anti-viruses and how to disable them here:

2) Disable background services that may interfere with the smooth running of SofTest. Instructions on how to do so are posted here:
