  • Typhoon warning signal No. 3 or Amber / Red rainstorm warning – all examinations will be held as scheduled
  • If weather conditions are at all doubtful, candidates should pay attention to the radio or television broadcast, or view the CII website/ CII Linked Page for any announcement.
  • When Black rainstorm or Typhoon signal No. 8 is announced -
    Examination will be cancelled if the signal is still in force 2 hours before the examination starts.
