  • Hello Admin,
    I submitted my application for CPA registration and Exemptions to KASNEB through a college in South Sudan. I attached my certificates, Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance Degree from Kyambogo University, a public University in Uganda, ATC certificate and Diploma in Business Studies.

    The college discourages students registered with them from applying for exemptions, we don’t know why even when one can qualify. Kindly advise if after registration with KASNEB one can submit application for exemptions. It discourages students and yet they are the only college here helping students register for KASNEB courses

    Thank you
