COVID-19 Exams update
Due to the global COVID-19 Pandemic all live examinations (i.e. with Examiners in attendance) worldwide have been postponed.
As we begin to emerge from lockdown RAD Australia has rescheduled all live exam sessions from May until 1 September to later in the year. See the tables below for dates. Teachers will be advised via email by their Tour Organiser when each session is open for entries.
Students also have the option to participate in Video AEC exams during any session and teachers have been provided with guidelines and information regarding this option.
Those who have already entered into exams for postponed sessions who do not want to reschedule or participate in video exams have the option to withdraw and receive a full refund.
We have put together some helpful Frequently Asked Questions and Answers for Exams in 2020 in response to feedback from Teachers at this time which you may find useful.
Following the latest advice, Special exam sessions for Advanced students in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane scheduled for March and April will now be postponed. We have offered students the opportunity to take these exams by video and shared guidelines and instructions on how to do this with their teachers. If a student in the Special exam sessions does not wish to proceed with their exam they are entitled to a full refund.
