Practical Session 2 Update – Oman
We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be postponing the entry period for Session 2 Practical exams and we will provide an update about the exams scheduled for November - December as soon as we can.
We will provide updates about future exams sessions as soon as we can and our Representative will provide further guidance in due course.
We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.
