Are you still intending to take your RES examination in 2021? Here are some useful updates for you!
Staggered opening for Day 1 registration with a 2-hours interval (i.e. AM slots registration starts from 9am and PM slots registration starts at 11 am).
No further priority will be given as we have made available sufficient exam seats to cater to all the February 2020 RES exam candidates in the September, October and November 2020 RES examinations.
Here're a couple of relevant FAQs from their website:
Is registration for the 2021 examination slots on a first-come-first-served basis?
Yes, the registration will be open to all candidates on a first-come-first-served basis.
What is the capacity for the 2021 RES examinations?
For the RES examinations in 2021, with safe management measures in place, the capacity per examination will be about 2,400 candidates spread out in small rooms of not more than 50 persons each.
Why can’t CEA conduct the RES examinations online for the safety of all candidates?
CEA is exploring alternate modes of conducting the RES examination to complement the on-site examination, such as conducting computer-based examinations, in which candidates sit for the RES examination at designated location(s).
Should an alternative mode be offered, implementation will not be immediate, as some time would be required for the onboarding onto the system. CEA will provide more information at a later stage.
Can CEA conduct more frequent examinations?
The availability of venues is a major factor in conducting the examinations. In addition, CEA has to assess that these venues are able to implement safe management measures as stipulated in MOH’s advisories for the safety of all examination candidates and the community. We will work towards exploring alternate modes of conducting the RES examination such as conducting computer-based examinations in which candidates sit for the RES examination at designated location(s).
Exam Location 1: Singapore Institute of Management (SIM)
Exam Location 2: SEAMEO Regional Language Centre (RELC)
You will be assigned to either Location 1 or 2. It will be stated in the Exam Notification Letter.
