  • Significantly reduced test capacity
  • Maximum 15 test-takers in one area at a time
  • Social distancing of 1.5 metres maintained at all times
  • Regular cleaning of high-touch surfaces
  • Temperature check on the arrival of the building and a wrist band will be provided so you can reenter the building 
  • Test centre staff and examiners will be wearing a face mask covering their mouth and nose 
  • Please note that you are required to wear a face mask when leaving home and throughout the duration of your test

Test takers are reminded to not attend RMIT English Worldwide if:
