COVID-19 Exams update

Following ongoing consultation with examiners, RAD global headquarters has decided to suspend all examiner travel from 17 March until 30 April 2020 and will repatriate all examiners to their home country immediately. All live examinations (i.e. with Examiners in attendance) worldwide will be postponed from 20 March until 30 April 2020.

With the closing of State borders in place RAD Australia will be making an announcement regarding exam sessions from 1 to 31 May 2020 in the coming days, and will continue to monitor the rest of year’s sessions on a rolling basis.

In the meantime, we have begun to successfully deliver examinations by video in some specific instances and are working with our colleagues in London to make decisions regarding this option for the upcoming sessions in May. Members will be contacted with updates as soon as they are available.

Special exams
Following the latest advice, Special exam sessions for Advanced students in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane scheduled for March and April have been postponed. Students have been offered the opportunity to take these exams by video and guidelines and instructions have been shared. Those students who did not wish to proceed with their exam are entitled to a refund less a 10% administration fee.
