If the minimum required number of students is not met, SAIW Certification retains the right to cancel a scheduled re-write exam on short notice.

Candidates will be duly informed of this cancellation at least two weeks prior to the re-write exam date. Alternate arrangements will be made to accommodate affected candidates in the next available re-write exam. Should the proposed alternative not be suitable for the student/applicant, a full reimbursement of the re-write exam fee will be issued.

Please note that personal expenses such as accommodation and travel costs cannot be claimed.

If a candidate cancels their re-write exam booking less than 15 (fifteen) days prior to the exam date, a cancellation charge, equivalent to the full re-write exam cost, will be applicable. No refunds will be provided in this case.

15 Days or More Notice
