There is no possibility to cheat in such kind of a scenario. The participants will have to keep their webcams on when they will answer the assessment tests online and the authority of IOELL will be invigilating and assessing the participants individually. Besides, the participants also have to provide remote viewing access to the IOELL authority during the assessment test. The individuals who will be guarding the tests are trained properly to ensure that the participants are not committing any form of illicit activity while taking part in the test.
