  • Submit a request stating reasons to the examination board, before commencing the study component for which you are requesting the exemption.
  • Include documentary evidence with your request demonstrating that you fulfil the requirements for the study component for which you are requesting an exemption.
  • The examination board ascertains with the aid of the documentary evidence submitted whether you fulfil the requirements for the study component in question.
