Significant Changes in the Institute's Examination Process

The Institute is pleased to announce that the modular system of examinations has been extended across all stages commencing from the 2013 examinations onwards.  Prior to this the modular system was confined to the Professional Stage examinations only.

All Formation 1, Formation 2, Professional 1 and Professional 2 examinations may now be taken on a modular basis and students may sit the examinations in the subjects at a stage in any order. However, all four examinations at each stage must still be passed within the four available consecutive sittings - inclusive of the first attempted sitting of any subject at this stage.
