The UAE is offering digital and face-to-face exams, including Theory exams. Digital exams will sit alongside the face-to-face exams, providing more choice and flexibility in how a regulated graded qualification can be achieved. The Digital exams are permanent - even with the resumption of face-to-face exams, candidates and teachers can still choose to take the Trinity exams digitally.
