2020 Examinations

Important information about your examination

Please note the following important information before you book your examination:

  • We reserve the right to make changes to these dates.
  • Although all our examinations are now delivered online they are examiner-marked and therefore subject to restrictions on candidate numbers.
  • Each online exam has a set capacity, and these can get fully booked before the exam entry closing date. We therefore suggest you book early to ensure you get the exam place you are hoping for. As ever, the earlier you book the better your chances of avoiding difficulty.

When booking two-part examinations your booking confirmation will show only the date for the ‘A' examination. However your joining instructions, when issued, will cover both parts. 

We strongly advise that you read all the information on our Online Examinations Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page before booking any examination.

You can find information including examination dates, entry dates and results release dates for the following IFoA 2020 examinations below.
