CANDIDATE INFORMATION REGARDING WITHDRAWAL FROM COLLEGE EXAMINATIONS

  1. A candidate who intends to withdraw from a College examination must notify the Examinations Department in writing.
  2. The full fee (less a cancellation charge of 100) will be refunded when written confirmation is received by the Department before the examination closing date.
  3. Refunds will not normally be made where a candidate withdraws after the closing date. A candidate who believes that they have an exceptional reason to withdraw should contact the Department in writing, enclosing documentary evidence (for example, a medical certificate or a letter from their Educational Supervisor) as to why they have decided to withdraw. The full fee will then be returned less an administrative fee of 100.
  4. Fees cannot be transferred to future examination sessions unless:
  1. a candidate has withdrawn from the examination for a reason given in (3),
    or
  2. a candidate applied for the complete Part 1 examination and did not pass the written examination. The fee can be (i) held by the College until the candidate successfully passes the written papers, (ii) be used towards the candidates next attempt at the written examination or (iii) returned to the candidate (less an administrative fee of 100).
