You will need to take the STR exam, but when you take it depends on when your Intern Certificate is issued. If your Intern Certificate is issued by or before December 30, 2020, you may take the STR during your Intern Year. If your Intern Certificate is not issued by or before December 30, 2020, you are required to pass the STR exam prior to being recommended for your Intern Certificate.

You will be required to take the STR exam because your Standard Certificate cannot be issued prior to December 30, 2020.

You are not required to take the STR.

You will need to pass your PPR exam and complete all remaining requirements in order to be issued your Standard Certificate before December 30, 2020. If your Standard Certificate is issued on or before December 30, 2020, you will not be required to take the STR exam.
