Exam Refunds – Practical Session 1 & 2

We are currently working to issue refunds for all exams cancelled due to COVID-19.

For entries submitted online, exam fees will be refunded to the original payment card automatically. If you card has been replaced since you made the entry, the refund should be redirected to your new card automatically in most cases and we will contact you directly if there are any issues processing your refund. Your refund will be processed from September onwards and we will provide more precise dates in due course. 

Please note that we are unable to refund online entries directly to your bank account. If you have concerns about the amount being refunded to your credit card, please contact your bank for advice as local reports suggest they have been quite helpful in these situations, given the current circumstances. 

If you submitted a paper entry form to your State Education Department, you must submit a refund request to the Examinations Syndicate in Malaysia with complete documentation attached by 14 September 2020. Manual refunds may take between 1 to 2 months to process. Any queries relating to manual refunds should be sent to [email protected]. Thank you for your patience.
