2) Council has approved the registration of undergraduates as student members provided that they possess five credits (in not more than two sittings) at O’ Level, including English Language and Mathematics. In addition, a certified letter of admission from the Tertiary Institutions of the undergraduate would be required. Such students will start sitting for the Institute’s Examinations from the Foundation level before progressing to other levels.

3) Students that registered or claimed exemption using a Statement of Result (of more than six (6) years after graduation) or any student that signed an undertaking for submission of the certificate with the Institute will have to submit his/her certificate.
