CBE system for SC licensing  

KUALA LUMPUR: The Securities Commission (SC) will launch a computer-based examination (CBE) system for all SC licensing effective January. 

“The system aims to increase the efficiency in the management and operation of licensing examination processes,'' the SC said in a statement yesterday. 

With the new system, all licensing examination modules will be offered on a weekly basis. Presently, certain modules are offered only twice or once a month. 

It will also enable candidates to know their results immediately after completing their examinations. 

A simulation programme to help candidates familiarise themselves with the system will be made available on the Securities Industry Development Corp website. 


Better CECEM seen this year
