This article explains how to make an entry for an existing candidate by finding their details in the system.
Searching for an existing candidate
If candidates already have an account and exist in another session, you can add them directly into a session.
This method is useful if candidate's already have accounts and guarantees their account is linked correctly for each exam.
You can re-add a login to the same session after a candidate has taken a test. This will allow the candidate to take the test again using the same login. If the candidate has taken a test multiple times their Test Report Form will display their best result for a selected 3 month period.
