Exemptions will be granted on a paper by paper basis. Exemptions will be granted to applicants who are deemed to have adequately covered the subject matter in the papers that they wish to be exempted. Applicants seeking exemption must therefore show evidence of adequate coverage of the content for the papers in which they are applying for exemption. However, no exemptions will be granted in Part III of the professional examinations other that to graduates of the examinations of KASNEB
Exemptions for holders of KASNEB qualifications
a) Exemptions will be granted for all common papers in the technician and professional examinations.
b) No exemptions will be granted to technician examination graduates beyond Part I of the professional examinations.
c) In granting exemptions, consideration will also be given to the core areas of expertise of the person seeking exemption. For instance, a CPA graduate is considered to be proficient in accounting and therefore would be exempted in accounting papers in other professional examinations of KASNEB.
Exemptions for holders of qualifications from other universities and examination bodies
Exemptions may be given to holders of degrees, diplomas and certificates from other recognised universities, institutions of higher learning and other examination bodies. In order to qualify for exemption under this category, applicants must provide evidence of adequate coverage of the content of the papers for which they have applied for exemption. However, no exemptions will be granted in Part III of the professional examinations except for graduates of the examinations of KASNEB.
Procedure for exemptions
