How NOUN Policy On Deferment Of Examination Works.

1. If you relocated to a new town, you could change your study centre to the one nearest to you at the beginning of a semester to avoid missing results.

2. Punishment for malpractice is missing out on two semesters, so make sure your case it doesn’t reach headquarters if at all accused.

3. You can defer your exams before it begins, if you’re not ready to sit for exams this semester. Why?

Well, if you don’t defer your exams and you didn’t sit for it, that’s carryover and you’ll have to rewrite it after payment for exams Registration.

But if you defer your exams, no more Course and exam registrations whenever you want to sit for the exams. And deferment request for exams at your study centre is FREE.

Negative Balance.

I advise you to read multiple past questions (may not be repeated but it helps to channel your mind toward the topics of discussion) and keep track of your academic progress by recording your scores timely and working towards further improvements.

POP Students.

please gather as many past questions as you could, read all of them and filter the repeated Questions per course…solve them and you’ll stand a chance to make at least “C” without malpractice.
