NCTJ coronavirus contingency plan update 24 March

The NCTJ has considered the revised guidance issued by the government on 23 March and has taken the decision to postpone all diploma exams in April 2020, including shorthand exams and in-office national sittings.

Full arrangements can be found in our updated contingency plan.

The NCTJ will review the guidance issued by the government in three weeks’ time to decide whether NCTJ exams will go ahead in May 2020, and thereafter the exams scheduled in June and July.  We plan to offer additional exam dates in August.

Our FAQs for candidates have also been updated, and can be found here.
