*Note: online testing has been approved as a pilot program for the summer exam window, 13 July to 21 August, to allow candidates greater flexibility during the COVID-19 pandemic. After the summer 2020 exam window ends, the RAC Board will review the effectiveness of live online proctoring as a testing method and decide whether online testing will be offered in the autumn of 2020.
