COVID-19: What’s in store for the ICB?

Date Published: October 17, 2020

COVID-19 has taken the world by storm, especially the academic institutions. Students have been unable to attend classes, finish curriculums and are unsure about writing their exams due to strict restrictions. 

The latter is one of the issues faced by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and their 2020 examination.  Having struggled to find enough venues to accommodate their exams, this is how COVID-19 has changed the future of the ICB.

Post-Covid ICB

With over 600 students set to write their ICB examinations in 2020, the ICB was able to find enough venues to accommodate all learners. 

While the examinations papers of 2020 remained written, the ICB has announced that potentially after their written papers in February of 2021, all the ICB examinations will be moving online.

This comes with the turmoil caused by the pandemic for the 2020 academic year and a potential second wave that could have the same effect in 2021.

New examinaiton periods

With the examinations now moving online, the ICB has decided that as from 2021, their examinations will take place every second month. 

This means that the ICB will be able to accommodate more students and give their learners more options when it comes to deciding when to write their exams. 

Examination timetable

While the planning is underway for the 2021 ICB academic year, they have released the timetable for the 2021 ICB examination period.
