To report a concern about a testing center or technical difficulties experienced during your exam, please contact customer service at Pearson VUE.
The scenarios below are all examples of how a candidate may violate Unity’s Terms and Conditions for certifications:
1. Cheating during the exam (such as looking at the monitors of other exam takers, using an unauthorized device or looking at notes).
2. Providing or accepting improper assistance during the exam.
3. Falsifying score reports, by modifying and/or altering the original results/score reports for any exam.
4. Falsifying identity or impersonating another individual to gain access to an exam.
5. Unity will perform statistical analysis for each location on a frequent basis. Candidates will be disqualified if Unity discovers any misconduct practices based on the analysis.
6. Copying, publishing, disclosing, transmitting, selling, offering to sell, posting, downloading, distributing in any way, or otherwise transferring, modifying, making derivative works of, reverse engineering, decompiling, disassembling, or translating any exam in whole or in part, in any form or by any means, verbal or written, electronic or mechanical, for any purpose.
7. Violating the agreement with the exam delivery provider in any way.
If a candidate violates any exam policy or Terms and Conditions or engages in any misconduct that may affect the security and integrity of the Unity Certification Program, the candidate may face severe consequences such as:
- Being barred from taking any other Unity certifications in the future.
- Losing any certifications achieved in the past, including test scores and badge credentials.
Unity may suspend testing at any Testing Center location where there is a possible security or integrity problem for the Unity Certification program. The candidates involved in testing sessions with improper activity will be banned and their scores will be canceled.
Based on security and integrity concerns, Unity also reserves the right to exclude specific regions, countries, and testing centers from the Unity Certification Program altogether.
Proxy testing is a situation in which someone takes an exam on behalf of another candidate. Any such behavior is unacceptable and in such cases both the exam taker and the intended test taker will face serious penalties including no further access to any Unity certification exams.
If a candidate engages in proxy testing, the candidate will be permanently banned from taking any Unity certification exams. Additionally, all certifications and test scores will be revoked. These actions may be taken even if the candidate did not intend to defraud the Unity Certification program.
If you believe that a website or a company provides proxy test-taking services, please inform Unity immediately by sending an email message to email@example.com.
A “brain dump” is a website that contains certification exam content that has been fraudulently obtained with the intention to share it with, or sell it to, exam candidates. The content included in brain dumps is exactly the same or substantially similar to items appearing on the exam. Because the exam content was fraudulently obtained, using this type of material to prepare for or during an exam constitutes cheating. Brain dump providers are in violation of Unity intellectual property rights and nondisclosure agreements.
If Unity learns that a candidate used a brain dump site to prepare for an exam, the candidate will be permanently banned or prohibited from taking any future Unity Certification. In addition, test scores and certifications, if applicable, may be revoked.
If you think you have discovered a brain dump site with Unity content, please inform Unity by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes. All correspondence to email@example.com can remain anonymous, and we will not share your contact information with anyone. Please mention in the email that you would like to remain anonymous.
