Exemptions must be agreed with an awarding body prior to the examination. If agreed, candidates will miss a component or components of an examination. This will result in a note on the candidate’s certificate to say that not all of the assessment objectives were accessible. There are strict deadlines for exemptions to be submitted. Exemptions are only to be considered as a last resort when all other arrangements have been considered and no other arrangement is possible. The exemption is only allowed for up to 40% of the qualification. Please see the regulations for more details regarding this last point
