RIAM Deferred Theory Exams Update

For the Attention of All Parents / Students Who Had Theory Exams Deferred in May 2020

Deferred Theory Exams: 
We have been informed by the RIAM that deferred theory exams will NOT NOW BE HELD on Saturday 19th September as originally scheduled by the RIAM last July. 
All students registered for theory exams will be notified by the RIAM over the next few days.

This has to do with centres not being available for large groups of students nationwide.

Exam Process

The Online Theory Exam process will be detailed by the RIAM in the coming weeks, including the process for under 16’s (digital age qualification). 


What is currently know is that:


  • Parent/guardian supervision will be required. 
  • Special needs students will sit their Exam as normal in the RIAM, or for those with access issues a reader from home is permitted. 
  • The Online Theory Exams will apply honour code in the same way 3rd level Exams have operated in the past, and more extensively this year due to CoVid19. 
  • Teachers and students should prepare for the same content as normal.
  • Online exam date is now scheduled for Saturday 14th November 2020
