Exemptions Policy

Exemption implies granting students’ permission to abstain from writing certain papers in the examination scheme of the professional programme. This implies that the student has already written and passed the same subject in a similar professional or academic examination. Applicants shall not be exempted beyond the Professional Level II of the CE examination scheme.


  • Participants whose transcripts do not indicate their knowledge of the business related courses in the foundation and intermediate levels would be required to take these courses in order to fully complete these levels.
  • If a person’s transcript indicates a completion of 50% or more of the course structure of the exemption levels, he/she should be considered for exemption.

A person willing to be considered for exemption should obtain an exemption form from the secretariat or website. The admission committee will review his/her transcripts and accept/refuse his/her application for exemption. Kindly download the exemption form below:
