Safe Exam Browser Installation Instructions—Apple OS Mac

The live entrance test can be accessed only through the Safe Exam Browser (SEB) using a valid configuration file. The SEB is a specialized web browser that restricts students’ access to external tools and resources while they are taking the entrance test. The SEB-configuration file regulates access to system functions, other applications and other settings while also pointing the SEB to the entrance test and performing a special “handshake” to validate security.

The SEB can be downloaded for Mac through the following link:
https://moodle.glctschool.com/tool/SafeExamBrowser-2.2.2.dmg

Installing the SEB on MacOS

1. Navigate to the About This Mac menu in your system menu bar to see whether the device is compatible with the SEB.

MacOS Check Version

2. You will see a window listing the version of your operating system. The operating system must be higher than 10.13.6 to run the SEB for the entrance test. In most cases, it is possible to upgrade the operating system at no cost, but it can take more than an hour.

Please note: The assessment is compatible up to version 2.2.2 of the SEB.

4. Double-click the .DMG file found in the downloads folder.

5. Drag the Safe Exam Browser icon and drop it on the Applications folder icon to the right. You will be asked for an administrator username and password for the computer.

6. You can verify the installation by opening Safe Exam Browser (via Spotlight). The SEB should open in a full screen with a message stating that it needs settings or a link to continue. This indicates that the installation of the program is complete. 

Please see the section “Loading the SEB-Configuration File” below.

Loading the SEB-Configuration File

In order to access the entrance test, the system needs to be opened through the Safe Exam Browser using an SEB-configuration file. This file opens to a login screen that then opens directly to the entrance test (Moodle).

You will need to enter “1978” in order to open the configuration file.

Download the SEB-Configuration File: https://moodle.glctschool.com/tool/SebClientSettings-Mac.seb
