What is the difference between 例外 and 除外?

It just now (by chance) came to my attention that there are TWO meanings of “exception” on Wanikani. Is there any difference between the two?

Any good explanation would be greatly appreciated!

例外 is something out of the ordinary
除外 is the act of excluding something

Damn I was overcomplicating it. I can see how it means that now. Thanks Leebo! :slight_smile:
