We hold a Provincial Exam Day in January and June every year for students to write any NSFA exam. Due to COVID-19 those days are subject to cancellation with little notice. In case of such a cancellation, or if the Provincial Exam Day dates are not possible for you, we can offer exams by private proctoring via Zoom or in person (again, Covid permitting). A session with an exam proctor can be booked after your course is finished.
