Pioneering technology places international tax exams at cutting edge

The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) has responded to the growth and popularity of the Advanced Diploma in International Taxation (ADIT) by allowing students to sit their exams electronically from June 2014.

The Institute has pioneered a new examinations system which enables students to utilise specialist on-screen examination software on their own laptops. 
CIOT President, Stephen Coleclough, commented:

“The introduction of on-screen examinations recognises the importance of making this increasingly popular qualification convenient and accessible to our diverse and global student population. This new system will play a key role in the delivery of the ADIT qualification in the future by providing significantly more flexibility than before.
“We have been particularly encouraged by the number of students who provided positive feedback during the June 2013 ADIT on-screen examination pilot. A number of them praised the system as being easy to understand.

“In addition to our pioneering of this new exam format, we are also delighted to announce that from December 2014, there will be a second examination session available each year to ADIT students who will be able to select from the most popular ADIT examination papers. We recognise, and have responded to, the international nature of the ADIT by ensuring that these developments take into account the busy schedules and different circumstances of ADIT students.”
