ACCA has launched a new Covid-19 online hub, which it plans to refresh regularly – www.accaglobal.com/covid-19.
There is a student planning exams and support area too.
This explains that in March it issued comms about the measures taken to protect its students’ wellbeing during exam week. This included:
- Permission of masks being worn by students and invigilators.
- If students chose to wear a mask they were advised to bring their own, and expect to remove it during registration, ID checks and after any toilet breaks.
- Hand sanitisers were made available at centres, and students were also allowed to bring their own.
- Computers were disinfected between sessions.
Students were also encouraged to get to the exam centre earlier than normal.
Looking ahead all the ACCA could say was: “We’ll continue to monitor the situation very closely and will take any relevant measures in line with the advice of our partners and local agencies.”
