Safety Guidelines for Test Takers

 

Cambridge English Safety Guidelines

Candidate Safety

Our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of candidates and their families, and of the staff in our centres.
If you have a cough, fever or are showing signs of being short of breath, you should not attend a test. You should inform your exam centre as soon as possible and you will be eligible for transfer to a different date or a refund.

Use of Face Masks
As a precautionary measure for any exams taking place, Cambridge Assessment English has agreed that, until further notice, candidates, centre staff and examiners may wear a face mask covering their mouth and nose during the test. The use of face masks is allowed for both written and speaking tests.
Please note, face masks will have to be removed temporarily to allow for standard identity checks. Test day photos will have to be taken without face masks to allow for verification of candidates by recognising organisations.

Cancellation of Exam Sessions
Where exam sessions have to be cancelled by centres on the advice of national and local healthcare authorities, your centre should contact you to advise you of the cancellation and give you further information. Sessions may be re-scheduled for a later date or you may receive a refund of the exam fees if the session had to be cancelled. If your provider delivers the exam as part of a course or educational programme, there may be other arrangements. They will be able to provide further information.

Travel Restrictions
If you are unable to attend your exam as a result of precautions against the spread of the Novel Coronavirus, for example travel restrictions put in place by local government authorities, please contact your exam centre as soon as possible to let them know and to discuss arrangements for transferring your entry to an alternative date.
