    Center face within your camera frame;
    Room must be well lit with NO background lights (no contrasts);

    Were you trying to access it on a phone or tablet? The survey could only be completed on a laptop or PC with full screen resolution.

    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Agreed. I find it essential to keep the browser tab open when I am available for studyage. You will probably be eligable for 2-3 a day, but if you are not online when they are available then its tough unfortunately!
