The following 3 modules are available for exemptions based on the candidates’ prior course of studies and working experience:
Business and Finance (BIZ & FIN)
Financial Management (FIN MGMT)
Management Information (MGMT INFO)
If you do not hold an accredited degree qualification and would like to be assessed for exemption(s), an exemption assessment fee of S$150 must be paid upfront together with the programme application.
Applications would be subjected to individual assessment based on applicants’ prior course of studies and academic transcripts. Exemptions will be given based on vetting of their prior academic studies against core subject’s coverage requirements (on a subject-by-subject basis). Applicants applying for exemptions are required to have achieved at least 75% of the required competencies, in terms of depth and coverage, and achieved pass mark of at least 50% in each subject relevant to the ISCA PE modules before exemption can be granted.
The assessment of syllabus coverage may take into account of relevant competencies achieved through working experience of at least 5 years. Applicants must demonstrate that they have achieved at least 75% of the required competencies, in terms of depth and coverage, before exemption can be granted. To do so, applicants are required to provide the description of their jobs, roles and responsibilities for the past 5 years and beyond, and specific examples to demonstrate that their working experience is adequate to meet the core subject’s coverage requirements. Testimonials from employers are required to support the justification. Applications under these exemption criteria will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
