CAS did send us an email (check spam or maybe you didn’t get it, I never got the first email about this process going digital).
“We are aware that candidates in Illinois received or will receive a cancellation notice for their exam sitting due to limitations placed on Pearson VUE test centers, as dictated by the state government’s health guidelines. The CAS understands your frustration at receiving this notice, as well as that of your employers, after you have spent months in preparation for the exam. CAS leadership is in regular communication to stay informed of how the situation is unfolding and to determine how best to address it. While the CAS does not have an alternative testing option to offer you at this time, we will follow up with you with additional details the week of November 30.”
So I’m not sure whether to keep studying or enjoy the holiday. Thanks CAS.
