The exemption(s) as appearing in the Admit Card should match with the exemption(s) as shown in the Attendance Sheet. In case of any discrepancy with regard to paper-wise exemption(s) shown in the Admit Card and/or any mismatch with the exemption(s) as appearing in the Attendance Sheet, it should immediately be brought to the notice of the Superintendent of Examination Centre and the Directorate of Student Services of the Institute in writing through our support portal http://support.icsi.edu for necessary clarification and confirmation. However, exemption in any paper(s) of Examination should not be assumed unless confirmed in writing by the Institute. No communication in this regard will be entertained by the Institute at a later stage after the Examination.
17. The paper-wise exemption in any paper(s) of the Examination, once sought by the candidate and granted by the Institute remains valid and is printed in his/her Admit Card (Roll No.) and taken on record for computation of his/her results unless it is cancelled by the student by submitting a formal request to the Institute at the online portal https://smash.icsi.edu after logging into the individual account of the students.

18. Candidates fulfilling the eligibility conditions under 60% marks criteria have been granted exemption(s) in the respective papers and such exemption(s) has/have been shown in the Admit Card as well as the Attendance Sheet. The status of available exemptions is also available in the individual account of the students at: https://smash.icsi.edu . Further, if such candidates appear in any paper disregarding the exemption granted as shown in the Admit Card, the exemption will be cancelled by the Institute without notice and shall not be revived under any circumstances.
19.

20. It may be noted that in some cases, the exemptions granted in more than one paper in accordance with the various provisions contained under the Regulations are inter-related with other exemptions granted and cancellation (or appearance) in any one of the papers may result in cancellation of exemptions in all the inter-related papers. For example, if a candidate has been granted paper-wise exemptions in three papers on the basis of scoring 64, 59, 57 & 10 marks respectively in the four papers contained under Module – I of Executive Programme in previous session and in case he/she appears or cancels the exemption in any one out of the three exempted papers having scored 60% marks in aggregate, all the three exemptions shall be cancelled since the exemption criteria in this case is applicable only if all the three papers are taken together. Such guidelines are equally applicable for the students of Professional Programme also.
Candidates are, therefore, advised to be extremely careful while seeking cancellation or while appearing in the exempted papers, as the final result will be computed considering the actual marks scored on reappearance and/or the deemed absence in the papers as the case may be. In other words, candidates appearing in the exempted papers despite an endorsement to the effect in the Admit Card shall be doing so at their own risk and responsibility and the Institute may not be held responsible for any eventuality which may arise at a later date. In case of any doubt regarding the applicability of rules regarding the exemptions, students should invariably seek prior clarifications from the Institute by writing through our support portal http://support.icsi.edu before deciding on their own to appear in the Examination of exempted subjects or seeking cancellation of exemptions granted.
