CIPFA has confirmed students will be able to take the June exams at home, or can choose a private setting other than their home – but no exams will be offered either at workplaces or CIPFA venues.
The institute is hoping the new arrangements will alleviate students’ concerns about the risk of delays to their studies as a result of Covid-19.
The remote exams will be supervised by an online invigilator through ProctorU, and exams will be monitored through the computer’s webcam and microphone. Students have their exam times booked, and each must produce photo ID before they start the exam.
Any student experiencing technical difficulties will be able to defer their exam to September 2020.
