This research is carried out to develop IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) based Mobile Mass Examination (MoMEx) System. MoMEx system is intended to improve on management of examination process for large number of examinees. IMS based application is considered to be the next generation mobile applications that enable developers to take advantage of mobile networks resources. IMS-based application is attributed with robustness and improved Quality of Experience (OoE) for mobile users. Such quality is needed to ensure users reliabilities on the system. In This paper, we cover the analysis and design phase of MoMEx system. We have designed set of questionnaires aimed to gathering insights how much the concept of mobile exam and assessment will be accepted among the students and faculty members. Based on the results obtained, we concluded the functional requirements of MoMEx system prior to implementation phase.
