COVID-19 Exams update

The usual delivery of live examinations has been disrupted throughout 2020 due to the global COVID-19 Pandemic. Most sessions have now been rescheduled to the end of 2020. At this stage, we are continuing to monitor Government advice with regards to Victoria and are working with teachers to schedule exams with them on a needs basis. Please refer to the Exam Dates page for up to date information.

In response to the pandemic we have also begun to successfully deliver examinations by video and teachers can find out more about this by contacting their Tour Organiser who can be found on the Exam Dates page also.

We have put together some helpful Frequently Asked Questions and Answers for Exams in 2020 in response to feedback from Teachers at this time.

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 full refund.

Exam preparation information for teachers in 2020.

RAD headquarters have put together guidelines for RAD teachers to help with the planning and preparation of examinations over the next few months. This includes adaptations to the format of some examinations as well as suggestions for managing social distancing in alignment with UK government guidelines. These adaptations apply until March 2021. Find out more here.
