Instructions to Candidates

Candidates must adhere to the following instructions for a smooth and successful examination experience:

  1. Arrive at the examination room 15 minutes before the scheduled time for the paper.
  2. In the event of lateness, provide a valid reason to the Supervisor. Late candidates may be allowed to write the paper only under exceptional circumstances.
