CREST Practical examinations on hold in November in UK

Due to the vote in UK Parliament this week for England to go into lockdown from 5 November until 2 December, CREST has taken the decision to cancel all of its practical exams in the country during this time.  This includes any exams that were due to take place at the examination centre in Slough and in hotels.

CREST has taken this decision to ensure compliance with legislation both in terms of running exams on site in Slough and in hotels, as well unnecessary travel for candidates.  In addition, the health and welfare of candidates and everyone involved in running examinations is always our primary concern, so it is the right decision to make at this current time.

We appreciate this is a concerning time and anyone with an examination that was scheduled to take place in November will have been contacted individually to re-arrange.

If you have any questions then please email [email protected]

Currently lockdown ends on 2 December, so examinations should resume after that date.  We do hope you appreciate this is an evolving situation and out of our control, but we will keep monitoring and will let you know if anything changes.
