As you are aware there is now a gradual relaxing of the COVID regulations for face to face examinations.

We are working with the University to develop a checklist as guidance to allow you to hold face to face examinations in premises for which there is a formal COVID Safe plan in place.

You will be notified when this has been signed off and the guidelines will be sent to you which should be in the next few days.

In the meantime the remote assessments remain in place and our thanks to those who have been conducting these.
