PPL exams and covid

I passed the last of my PPL exams in January 2020, giving me 24 months from that date to finish my training. As you know, 2020 was a write-off, meaning I have one more year in which to do this before I have to take all of the exams again. Unfortunately, I've heard rumours that lockdown may not be lifted at all this year... admittedly they may turn out to be just rumours, but even so, it's likely we've going to remain in lockdown until July...

My question (and I've a feeling I already know the answer) is: have the CAA considered this possibility, and have they said anything about giving PPL students an extension? I'm sure I'm not the only one in this situation, with rapidly expiring exam results and no possibility of completing my training in the foreseeable future.

Good to know, thanks for your prompt reply! Although my exams don't fall within this period, it's good to know that they have considered the implications and are granting exemptions where necessary.
