​Online Examinations

IBF offers online examinations as a Business Continuity Measure, such as when the IBF Assessment Centre is not accessible due to a BCP event, or for candidates based overseas who are unable to take examinations in person due to travel restrictions.

Registration for online examinations can only be made by financial institutions (FIs). FIs should register their candidates using the Candidate Registration Form and submit it to IBF at exams@ibf.org.sg with the subject header “Online Examination Registration”.

Please refer to Part IX of the IBF Examination FAQs for more details on online examinations.
