Are you getting restless thinking about those extra 5 PR points? On top since last week, NAATI gave notice on conducting the exam. They have changed the format for the test due to COVID19. NAATI CCL New Test Format for 2020 is online-based and will be taken online with certain rules to be followed by the test takers.
You’re probably aware that NAATI exams have always involved face to face interaction between the examiner and the candidate. NAATI CCL tests are a formal translation test that requires certain decorums. NAATI has set CCL Test New Format for the year 2020 due to the pandemic COVID-19.
But in recent months, there’s been a frightful scenario caused by the pandemic COVID-19 disease. And various restrictions have been imposed regarding business meets and gatherings. We should be wise and abide by these impositions to keep ourselves and fellow citizens out of danger. It’s time to put our health and safety first. We cannot risk more lives and cause more damage. Think about those who are fighting on the frontline not caring about their family and health, our Nurses, Doctors, Janitors, and other medical staff.
Considering the situation, NAATI has announced to make changes regarding the ccl test format by taking it online and making it convenient for the candidates who are willing to appear for the test. For those who have their test in April and are pensive on not getting a call from NAATI to schedule the online test, don’t worry you will get the call soon. April’s exam will be conducted till June 30th and July’s test will be conducted by August 30th.
