  1. EDAIC Part II 2020 examination postponed to later dates

The Examinations Committee is currently working on a new calendar to be able to offer an alternative to most candidates to take the Part II examination in 2020.

Should the COVID-19 crises be over by the summer, new dates ranging from the end of August to early December 2020 will be communicated at the soonest.

Please note that we may propose alternative dates in a different centre (for example candidates registered in Zurich may be proposed an alternative date in a different city/country).

While we are doing our best to give you the opportunity to take the exam in 2020, we also count on your understanding. Indeed, only one alternative date will be offered to you.

If you are unable or unwilling to attend EDAIC Part II on the new date, you will be able to cancel your registration and get a full refund of the registration fee minus handling charges of 50€. We will only take into consideration cancellations once the new dates have been communicated. All indirect costs incurred by the registration for EDAIC Part II such as transportation and accommodation are not covered by the ESA. If you are still interested to sit the examination in 2021, we will try to prioritise your registration in 2021.
