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, all exam fees have been refunded to the original payment card and should be received by 14 September 2020. If you card has been replaced since you made the entry, the refund should be redirected to your new card automatically. If you have any queries in relation to this, please contact your card provider.

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.
