Deferrals and Absences

Deferrals

Exam registrations cannot be deferred from one examination session to another. If you are unable to sit an exam you have registered for, you will need to re-apply for the next available exam sitting and pay the appropriate fee.

Student Illness

In the event of certifiable illness, you will be required to re-register for the next available exam sitting. A re-registration fee of €90 per module applies.

You are obliged to provide us (The Insurance Institute) with an original medical certificate and/or supporting documentation together with the re-registration fee within ten working days of the date of the original exam.

Applications without supporting documentation and the relevant fee will not be considered.

Extenuating Circumstances

In the event of absence from an exam due to the death/serious illness of a direct family member, you will be required to re-register for the exam and to provide us with supporting documentation, together with the re-registration fee within ten working days of the date of the original exam.

In these circumstances the waiving of the re-registration fee is at our discretion.

Cancellations

Once you have registered for an exam, while the registration may be cancelled, the registration fee will not be refunded.
