A postponement received less than 10 working days before the date of an exam will result in a penalty of 100% of the examination fee.
A cancellation received less than 10 working days before the date of an exam will result in a penalty of 100% of the examination fee. 
A cancellation received more than 10 working days before the date of an exam will result in a penalty of 20% of the examination fee.

There is only one exception to the above conditions:

If you, as a result of illness or any other unforseen circumstances are prevented from writing a regulatory examination on the date arranged, please contact the FPI examination department within 10 working days, furnishing reasons for your absenteeism in writing and including the supporting medical or other evidence to validate why you were unable to attend the RE due to illness/accident/etc.

In these circumstances you will be allowed to reschedule at no cost. Your Application will not be considered without the evidence mentioned above, and without it, you will forfeit your fee.
