Candidates are eligible to take a Graded Examination, Presentation Class or Class Award, if their age meets the minimum age requirement in the year of examination.

From 1 January 2013, the RAD will implement a new minimum age policy for all examinations and assessments resulting in two cut off dates, by which candidates need to have achieved the required minimum age in order to enter for examinations — 1 January and 1 September.
