The exam for Institute of Actuaries which was slated for April 2020 has been cancelled. The major reason is the Corona Virus which is causing havoc around the world.
Here is the full statement from the institution:
“The IFoA can confirm that it will not be holding the upcoming April written assessments in examinations centres due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
We appreciate that this is a stressful time for our students.
This decision has been made to protect our students’ wellbeing following the advice of governments in the countries where our students study.
We are, however, keen to explore any ways that will still enable us to run our examinations as we know our students have undertaken a great deal of study and want to maintain their progress.
We are continuing to look at the options: this includes moving to online assessment or possibly to a postponement.
We expect to provide an update on this announcement next week.
We can confirm our students will be given options for their April examination registrations which respond to their own personal circumstances. As soon as we are able to confirm arrangements, we will do so.
Owing to the current COVID-19 situation all IFoA employees are now working remotely. This will significantly reduce our ability to respond to phone calls so we would ask that all enquiries are made by e-mail.
We will endeavour to email examination candidates if any of the information above changes; our goal is to give you the most complete information available as quickly as possible”
