8. Eligibility to combine subjects at different levels of the examinations is only applicable to candidates with recognised professional qualifications and with appropriate exemptions granted and properly authorised. Candidates are advised to contact the Professional Examinations Department to confirm their eligibility.
9. Students are advised to read through the details of the Institute’s newly introduced examinations offences and appropriate disciplinary measures and penalties hosted on the website towards maintaining decorum for achieving a hitch-free examination process.

The Council of the Institute has waived the Ten-Year Rule, which mandatorily required candidates to complete all parts of the Institute’s qualifying examination within a period of ten years, from the date of sitting the examination for the first time, as part of its credit system for those taking its professional examinations.

In place of the Ten-Year Rule, the Council has approved a Five-Year Rule which now applies only to candidates at the Professional Level of the examinations. The Five-Year Rule requires that candidates must pass all the papers in the Professional Level within five years from the date they obtain the first credit or will forfeit such credits that were obtained beyond five years.
All credits obtained at this level will therefore be valid for only five-years after which they will lapse. The implication is that candidates are expected to write and pass the Professional Level examinations within five years from the diet they obtain their first credit.
The Five-Year Rule took effect from May 2017 diet.
Credits earned at the Professional level began to count from May 2017 diet of the Institute’s Examinations.
