My online class uses a seperate website called Examity to proctor our exams online. When I run the requirements test for it it pops up with a error message saying I need to download a Flashplayer and lists Adobe's site but I see that it is EOL. So what am I supposed to download to replace it and functions the same way? Please help 😞

You need to call the online proctor service and ask them what their plan is, and/or contact your professor. Feel free to point them both to this conversation.
Here's the announcement from 2017 with background and additional roadmaps from each of the browser vendors. This was widely covered in the tech press at the time.
Here's the consumer FAQ:
Our recommendation would be to contact the proctor service and ask them what their solution is, and/or find an alternative proctor service that doesn't require Flash.
Given that Flash Player stopped loading content from the open web on January 12th, and that both Safari and Google Chrome 88 (which represents about 70% of the US browser market) have dropped support for all browser plug-ins (including Flash), your options as an individual are pretty limited.
More details are in the consumer FAQ, here:
Hope that helps!
