Qualifying Examination – About QE – Updates
EXTENSION OF TIME LIMIT TO COMPLETE THE MIA QUALIFYING EXAMINATION (MIA QE)
The Institute in its recent Council Meeting has agreed to extend the time limit for the candidates to complete the MIA QE with immediate effect. The new practice are as follows :-
Candidates are expected to complete all four papers within four years from the date of the first Certificate of Candidacy.
Candidates who are unable to complete all four papers within the first four year period may apply for extension of time to complete the examination provided that the candidates have passed one paper within the first four years of the candidacy. The candidates shall be allowed to renew their Certificate of Candidacy with the prescribed fee for a further extension of two years and are required to complete the remaining paper(s) within the next four consecutive examination sittings.
If the candidates fail to complete all four papers within six years they would be required to re-take all four papers without considering the number of paper(s) that the candidates have passed.
Candidates who were admitted in 2004 are entitle to renew their candidacy for another two years provided they have already passed one paper. Candidates who were admitted prior to 2004 and had at least passed one paper may write in to the Examination Committee for further consideration.
The new practice will supersede the previous guidelines under Clause 9: Completion of the Examination. Should you need further clarification, please contact the Education Department at 03-22799200 for attention of Pn Siti (ext 313), Pn Nurul (ext 314) or Cik Ros (ext 310).
