I heard a rumour, so I called Pearson VUE in Seattle myself pretending to be a CAS exam taker.
The very nice lady on the phone said that
- "we have more restrictions starting tomorrow"
- "They are reaching out to reschedule a lot of exams right now, and they need to do it quickly"
- "They should be sending emails out"
The second and third quotes were CAS specific.
Wow. I feel for every student impacted by this. I really hope everyone ends up with a reasonable alternative.
Pearson VUE offers an online proctoring solution. I don't know how it works, but on the surface it seems like CAS needs to make that available to students that just studied for 300+ hours and don't have a place to take an exam
