We are excited to launch the first ever – yes the first ever online test preparation website for pilots in Malawi. We are pioneers in innovation when it comes to flight training in Malawi and so excited by your encouragement. Having developed the first-ever online ground school in Malawi, we thought of enhancing the learning experience of our students to another level by throwing in the online TestPrep site for free. The site has over 10,000 questions and answers from over 12 question banks. It is an intelligent system that builds on artificial intelligence to randomly pick questions and then present to them in each mock exam attempt. This technology enables our students to virtually access an unlimited number of mock exams as the questions are shuffled every time you attempt an exam. We are still growing the question bank so these figures are just the start. Here are a few tips and tricks outlined step-by-step:
To login, simply go to the main website and click the TEST PREP button link on the home page. You can also type exams.eastriseaviation.com in your web browser. You will be redirected to the TEST PREP site which is on our subdomain. The site is automatically served securely so you will note that the web address starts with https not http when it loads.
Once you are redirected to the TEST PREP site, click the REGISTER/LOGIN menu link to reveal the login form as shown below. Enter your credentials and there you go!
The Login form has fields for your email and password. There is also a text link for requesting for your verification email/code to be resent. We have enhanced security by requiring users to verify their email address and phone number when they register. We are keen on getting the spammers out!
Once logged in, you will see your STUDENT DASHBOARD where there are side-panel menu links. They are self-explanatory so we will focus on the key items.
Accessing Mock Exams
Click the MY EXAMS side-panel menu link to reveal your exam subscriptions. Once the page loads, click the ATTEMPT NOW icon link. A popup text description will appear when you hover your mouse over icon links. Here is what the panel looks like:
Now that you have opened the ATTEMPT now icon link, you are ready to take your mock exams! A splash screen with instructions will pop out and once you click START, a new window will open which will enable you to take the exams.
There is a Question Palette on the right side of the exams administration window as can be seen in the image above. There is a legend below that palette which is also self-explanatory. The system will count down from 60 minutes and will auto-close when the time lapses even if you have not attempted all the questions. The system will automatically notify your ground instructor if you migrate away from the active screen. You will also see a red screen warning to that effect. This is to simulate real exam conditions and to prevent cheating. Once you are done, hit the SUBMIT button link as shown in the screengrab below.
You can check your entries and the correct answers by clicking the MY RESULT menu link on the left panel. Thereafter, click the ACTION icon link as shown in the image below.
Now that you have clicked the menu link, your results dashboard will open. Click the relevant tab to check either your scorecard, your time management, subject report, and others as can be seen in the image below. Most importantly, you can check your entries by hitting the SOLUTION link as shown in the image below.
We have designed and named the menu links in such a way that they are mostly self-explanatory. We therefore trust that you will for the most part find the TESTPREP site easy to navigate. Should you have any challenges, be sure to drop us an email or a message on WhatsApp. We are more than happy to help!
What if I lose Internet connectivity?
The system will auto-save and will continue from where you left off. There is no negative marking in the mock exams so that you get the most realistic result.
Why an Online Mock Exam System?
The online mock exam administration system has several advantages. Here is a shortlist:
- Unlimited number of exams: You will have access to an unlimited number of mock exams as the system will shuffle the questions from the question bank and present them to the student.
- Application of Artificial Intelligence: The exam system will intelligently increase the level of difficulty as your score improves and will thus enable you to keep improving.
- Instant Marking: You do not need to wait for your ground instructor to mark your exams — the results are instant and will show you both your strong areas and those that need improvement.
- We are Moving Ahead of Time: Internationally, most aviation exams are now administered online. We trust that the Malawi Civil Aviation Authority (presently called the Directorate of Civil Aviation) will eventually administer the knowledge tests online. By providing an online exam platform, we are bringing an international experience locally – another first from Eastrise Aviation!
