Exam-Free Modules

​​The exam-free modules offere​​​d under the National Silver Academy (NSA) are essentially audit modules, whereby seniors can sit into a class as observers without needing to complete any formal assessment. These modules form part of a CET Diploma course, and cover in-depth knowledge and skills in the specified domain area (such as Humanities & Social Sciences, Business & Accountancy, and Engineering). These modules typically consist of evening sessions spanning two to five months. There are up to five places per class. Classes will be joint with other students who are taking these modules on an assessment mode.
