Hi. I have been diagnosed with Covid positive on October 26th and my CFA Level 1 Exam is scheduled for November 17th. Can I defer my exam for next year?
The CFA website says that deferral forms for november 2021 candidates must be completed within 10 days of the exam window. Do I need to wait until November 7th to complete the deferral form or is it possible to do it now?
If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the 14 days leading up to your exam appointment, have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the 14 days leading up to your exam appointment, or are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, you must not report to the test center on your exam day. Instead, contact us for more information.
I would test again within 14 days and if it comes up positive, get in touch with CFA Institute and you should be able to get a deferral.
