Update from the LIBF

The London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF) has confirmed that its test centres for multiple-choice exams, have re-opened and students can book their exams as before.  Candidates are advised that spaces are limited due to social distancing measures and they should book exams well in advance. The LIBF said it is also continuing to add more qualifications to its remote invigilation platform, OnVue. Below is the updated schedule for these.

Once the above schedule has been completed the LIBF will then be able to offer all its qualifications, examined by multiple-choice exam, via test centres and remote invigilation; providing students with the flexibility to sit their exams when and where they wish.  This will become a core part of the LIBF’s offering and going forward all students will have the choice to sit their exams from home or via a test centre.

Written and typed exams

Alongside the qualifications that are assessed by multiple-choice exams, the following qualifications that have a written/typed assessment will be made available via remote invigilation, so students can sit their exam from home.

LIBF qualification Date available via remote invigilation
Diploma in Financial Advice (DipFA) 7 May 2020
Level 6 Advanced Diploma in Financial Advice (Adv DipFA) 11 June 2020
Diploma in Business & Commercial Banking Conduct of Business (DipBB&C) TBC  (October 2020)

Exam results at Pearson test centres

The LIBF has previously provided students with their exam results at the Pearson VUE test centres, issuing a printed results sheet, as soon as they have completed their exam. However, due to enhanced safety measures at the test centres and a change in technology, results will no longer be provided at the test centres.

Instead students can access their result within three to four hours via their MyLIBF account. LIBF said it appreciated this has increased the amount of time it takes for students to receive their result but they will still get these on the same day and this is a safer and greener option compared to before.
