Just received an email linking the below regarding plans for future exam amidst the pandemic.
I’m unsure if this is UK only or more widespread. I’m due to sit AA and FM in September.
My initial concerns is this damaging the ACCA brand as the exams may be easier to cheat, although I don’t have any experience with remote invigilation and the AI element could be really good. Does anyone have experience?
I’m not sure if ACCA are winning from this by keeping fees the same, I expect the lower premises costs would outweigh the purchase of this software but I could be wrong.
I’m personally hoping exam centres can open, adhering to whatever measures are in place come September, but accept they may genuinely not be able to.

Other professional accountancy bodies – CIMA, ICAEW, AICPA are all turning to remote invigilation solutions. The costs will be significant not just because of the software costs but consider, for example, that far more invigilators will be needed to monitor candidates on screen than if they are standing at the front of a huge exam room from a vantage point.
