An online option for Full examinations (previously known as Advanced) was launched in March 2017. Clubs, exam centres and candidates have all given very positive feedback and supported the original idea of extending the online option to Intermediate and Foundation exams.
We’re delighted to announce that a recent Exam Group meeting approved the roll-out of online exams as follows:
- From 1 November 2017 the RSGB HQ Exams Department will accept applications for online Intermediate exams
- From 2 January 2018 you will be able to apply for an online Foundation exam
To bring consistency to the application process, a notice period of ten working days will apply to every exam from 1 November, regardless of level or whether online or paper-based.
All examinations, both online and paper, will still be held at Exam Centres and invigilated in exactly the same way as now. When applying for an exam you must state whether electronic, paper or a mix of examination type is required.
Online exams reduce paperwork for invigilators and provide immediate feedback to the candidates. More online administrative tools are in the pipeline to assist Examination Secretaries.
Applications for paper examinations will continue as before.
