  • Examinations at FAU are taking place as normal. If you are unable to attend an examination on Monday 10 February 2020 due to the storm, please inform your point of contact at the Examinations Office immediately. In this instance, the extraordinary circumstances mean that you will be deemed to have withdrawn from the examination and it will not be counted as a failed attempt. The above rule does not apply to State Examinations (!). In this case, the decision has to be taken by the Ministry.
