Trinity College London suspends all exams and awards

As supplied by Trinity College London, 19 March 2020:


With the health and safety of all Trinity candidates, examiners and staff being of paramount importance to us, due to the increasing spread of COVID-19 we have taken the decision to suspend all exams and awards with immediate effect, with the exception of our Secure English Language Tests (SELT). We are in daily discussions with UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) with regards to our continuing SELTs and follow the latest Government guidance on ensuring the health and wellbeing of candidates, examiners and staff.

Trinity is committed to supporting the hard work of candidates and teachers around the world. We know the amount of time and effort involved in preparing for our assessments, and how disappointing it will be to have to postpone exams. We are therefore working on a number of exciting new initiatives that will enable candidates for certain examinations to submit work digitally during this difficult period. Please continue to refer to the Trinity web site ( and to your local Trinity exam centre ( Trinity pages) for updates over the coming days.

We will continue to monitor all local and international Government advice and will resume face-to-face examinations as soon as it is safe to do so.
