All candidates who already hold exam passes will carry them into the PEP Standard Stream. Exams passed before 2019.1 remain valid in accord with the exam candidate handbook that was in place at the time of the first pass – usually three years. After three years, those passes will expire and you will begin a new exam candidacy under the Fellowship Exam Attempts Policy.
For those who have passed exam segments after 2019.1, your exam candidacy will be paused while you are in PEP and your passes will remain valid for the rest of your candidacy; if you enter the PEP, exam expiry will be frozen for the duration of your program; you will then have the remainder of the three years after you complete your program to pass any remaining exam segments.
If you have no passes before entering PEP, you will have three years from the point of your first exam attempt to pass all three segments, in line with clause 5.1.ii of the Fellowship Exam Attempts Policy.
In line with the PEP Exam Eligibility Policy, participants may not sit Fellowship examinations whilst still in the PEP Standard Stream. Participants may enrol in examinations prior to completion of Program time, but must have completed allocated Program time by the time that they sit the exams.
