    USB headsets will also work at the AMLF.  We recommend the Plantronics Audio 655 USB Stereo Headset, also available at the McGill Bookstore.

    Disclaimer: Voice recordings for exams and assignments must be of high quality. We therefore urge students to buy the recommended headset model. The Plantronics headsets have a one-year manufacturer warranty against defects. No exchanges will be honoured for headsets broken through the purchaser's neglect. The AMLF is not responsible for lost or stolen headsets.





    You MUST visit the AMLF at least once prior to a test in order to familiarize yourself with the procedures. Failure to do this will mean that you will not be allowed to take the test.

    Please verify your login accounts prior to any exam or test at the AMLF. Failure to follow this directive will result in considerable delays and time loss during the test.
