Candidates are eligible to take a Vocational Graded Examination
as long as their age meets the minimum age requirement in the year of examination
and they have successfully achieved the prior level 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.
