Are there any English test exemptions?

Please note that where appropriate (i.e. you have obtained the relevant score) The College will continue to exempt the need for IELTS from students who have taken local examinations in English such as WAEC, KSCE, ICSE, HKDSE, A-level, IB, SPM and STPM (including forecast results) etc. and to exempt students who can demonstrate where they have been taught through the medium of English.
