NUS High and polytechnic graduates may be granted course exemptions for relevan​t accountancy or business core courses based on their qualifications.

Course exemptions include:

  • NUS High Graduates

    If you have taken both MA5107 Statistics and MA6207 AP Statistics, and score​d at least B+ for MA6207, you will be eligible for exemption from the first-year core course,  AB1202 Statistics & Analysis

  • Polytechnic Graduates
    You may be granted an exemption for a relevant first-year course related to the Diploma you have obtained. Note that only Diplomas listed in Annex A are allowed exemptions. Students who are considering an exemption for AC1103 Accounting I, please see the special instructions here

    Nanyang Business School students transferring from other programmes can seek exemptions and credit transfers for similar or relevant courses covered in their previous programme of study.  

    Students transferring from other universities should submit an Exemption Request Form together with their degree audit/transcript, and detailed outline of the course(s) taken to the NBS Undergraduate Programmes Office at S3-B3a for review and consideration. 

    Students applying for course exemptions must submit their application before the end of the second week of the first semester for their enrolment.

    If you opt for an exemption, you:

    • Are deemed to have fulfilled the course requirements and the required number of Academic Units.
    • Do not need to attend the lectures, tutorials, sem​inars, or examinations for the exempted course(s). 
    • Will not be given a grade for the exempted course(s).

    Exempted courses do not count towards your Grade Point Average and have no bearing on the classification of the honours that you will be awarded.

    If you are eligible for a core course exemption, you do not have to take up the offer. For example, you may prefer to read the course at the undergraduate level as a useful refresher of the higher-level courses. In which case, no action is needed on your part. Simply attend the course as scheduled in your timetable.
