Default SRM May 2020

I'm registered to take this exam on May 12th and I feel ready. My main concern is that the exam just isn't going to happen. Does anyone know if the exam is going to happen as planned?

I missed the deadline for it. I wouldn't hold my breath for it to happen, but if enough states are off lockdown who knows. Mine won't be off lockdown when the sitting would occur.

I'm studying like it's going to happen based on Trump's briefings and local governor (Indiana) briefings. Looks like we will be starting to get out of lockdown May 1.

I saw that... Can't decide if I want to start studying for STAM then put it on hold for whenever they reschedule SRM or start doing modules.

I've been doing the modules but as of March 10 the grading for them have been on hold... I'd say go for it since you have access to them for a whole year.

Modules sounds like a great thing to do during this time. I was kinda dreading the thought of starting to study for STAM, have to stop to re-study SRM, then cram STAM again for the October sitting. That sounds pretty miserable. I think I'll get started on the modules to keep me busy until the next SRM sitting.

Maybe it's just too early, but does anyone know what the process is like for rescheduling?

Am I missing something or has SOA not actually postponed the May SRM? Prometric is closed, so it's obviously not happening, but I would appreciate confirmation from SOA.
