Red face Edinburgh Business School (MBA- subject exemptions)

Hi
My question is about academic credit transfers.

I am in Dubai (UAE) and planning to do my second Masters degree (MBA) from Edinburgh Business School (EBS)(Heriot Watt University - Dubai Campus).

My Bachelors degree/ Masters degree are from University of Wollongong In Australia.

Now my question is about conversion.

1) If i apply to EBS directly for exemptions how many credit points (Maximum) can i get as exemption?

2) In Australia we have 6 credit points per subject where as UK has a module system with 20 credit points per subject. In Australian system we take 2 subjects per semester (12 credit points).

Australian /UK both have 11-12 subjects/ modules in MBA.
How do they calculate and exempt subjects?

I tried this to understand... but got more confused
ECTS grading scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

EBS website says exemption for 1 subject transfer from undergraduate degree
and 4 credit points exemptions from Masters degree (Level 7).
http://www.ebsglobal.net/documents/exemptions.pdf

I am about to apply but do not want to waste time/ money on something not worth it.
Dubai campus is an authorized examination center but main exemptions approval will come from ebs.


Please Help me understand the UK educational system...

I can't directly help you but you'll find that each uni has its own rule and system for academic credits and recognition, so you have no choice but to put your question to EBS for an authoritative reply.
