I have the intention to apply for registration as a Registered QS with BQSM through the Special Route Scheme. However, one of the criteria needed is to pass PTK exam, which I've missed to take before it was discontinued. What option do I have? Will BQSM review this requirement in the near future? For the purpose of registration as a Registered Quantity Surveyor through the Special Route Scheme, one can seek for SPPA examination conducted by BQSM in lieu of the PTK exam. The Special Route scheme will end on 30th June 2015 or 1 year after the new QS Act has been gazetted.

In view of continuous improvement, BQSM will review from time to time alternative routes. However, at this moment one can seek for PP2 examination under ISM.In lieu of the PTK2, applicant is now required to sit and pass the PP2 exam conducted by ISM.
