15. It may be noted that in some cases, the exemptions granted 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 60, 62, 58 & 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, 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. 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, it would be better if the candidates seek prior clarifications from the Institute by writing at Grievance Portal at http://support.icsi.edu before appearing in the examination of exempted subjects or seeking cancellation of exemptions granted.
16. If any student appears in the examinations disregarding the exemption(s) so granted under the 60% marks criteria and shown in the Admit Card, the appearance will be treated as valid for the purpose of computation of results and the exemption granted will be cancelled without notice.Students are advised to be extremely careful while cancelling the exemptions and while appearing in exempted papers as it shall lead to cancellation of paper-wise exemptions in all the inter-related papers which may have an adverse impact at the time of computation of results.
