   Changes to assessments and exams

In order to protect the health of our students, members and staff we have today decided to postpone apprenticeship assessments and professional exams until later this year.

End-point assessment for apprentices

Arrangements for apprentices due to go through Gateway in May 2020 and take their end-point assessment in June/July 2020 will now be as follows:

Gateway will take place in September 2020 and the End-Point Assessments in October 2020.

Results will be released on 18 December 2020.

CILEx Level 3 and 6 exams

Exams that were due to take place between 8 - 12 June 2020 will now take place between 7 - 11 September 2020.

Results will be released on 13 November 2020.

The Professional Skills assessments are unaffected and will proceed in accordance with the June 2020 published schedule.

Everyone at CILEx fully recognises that these changes will be hugely disappointing and disruptive for you. However, in light of the many challenges we are all facing as a society, we had to act now.

Our overriding aim is to protect the health of our students, members and staff, while at the same time ensuring that all students are treated fairly, and we believe that decisive action now is the best way to achieve this.

Further communication will be made with individuals and stakeholders directly affected by this postponement over the coming days.  Please do email if you have any specific concerns, using the following email address support@cilex.org.uk or contact #CILExhelp

The release of the January exam results for Level 3 and Level 6 students will go ahead as usual on 27 March at 10am.

Like many businesses across the country everyone at CILEx, including the CILEx Law School and CILEx Regulation, is adapting their working practices in line with current government advice.

We are working very hard to deliver as full a service as possible, but we would ask that you be patient if you experience reduced service levels over the coming weeks.

We will continue to post updates on our website and across social media channels.
