There's been much uncertainty surrounding exams and study this year, not helped by the somewhat unexpected government announcement that England would be placed in a four week lockdown until December 2nd.
The AAT were quick to offer their students reassurance that the CBE centres would remain open during November, enabling students to continue with their study programs. This is in line with current government guidance reiterating the importance of education remaining accessible.
The ACCA will be making an announcement today with the perhaps not unexpected news that a number of in-centre exams will be cancelled and students impacted by this decision will be offered the chance to transfer their booking to a remote exam or defer until March 2021.
The centres affected are based in: Inverness, Aberdeen, Bournemouth, Bristol, Chelmsford, Norwich, Reading, Stevenage, Swansea, Watford and the Jury's Inn, London.
Students will be encouraged to book their remote exam as soon as possible and for those still sitting their exams in centres, information will be provided explaining how the centres will be made as Covid safe as possible.
