Normally we book a Provincial Exam Day in January and June every year for students to write any NSFA exam. Due to COVID-19 we don't know yet if we can hold those days. We will therefore be doing everyone's exams by private proctoring via Zoom until we can resume in-person exams. A session with an exam proctor can be booked after your course is finished.
