Once an application for registration is sent, no cancellation is possible.

Only in such cases the instrument (D.D/Challan) he/she has used to pay the fee is returned back. The applicant can cancel the instrument and get the money on it back.

Refund of fee paid is not possible under any other circumstances.

Registration - Last/Cut-off dates

Registration for the Foundation Level/Course can be done all throughout the year. There is no such thing as a last date for registration. The only requirement is that the minimum course duration should have elapsed for a student to be able to appear at a certain examination.

A student can appear for an examination that would fall after the minimum course duration has elapsed from the date of registration.

Based on this, one can take the following as the cut-off dates for registration to make him/her eligible for appearing at the noted examination. An example is given in [ ]

Students registering

  • Before June 15th can appear in the December Examination the same Year

    [Register before 15th June 2009 to be eligible for attempting the December 2009 Exam]

  • Before December 15th can appear in the June Examination Next Year

    [Register before 15th December 2009 to be eligible for attempting the June 2010 Exam]

Registration - Validity Period, Revalidation

There are no restrictions as to the validity period of registration or the coaching completion certificate (CC).

There is no restriction even on the number of attempts a student can make at the foundation examination.

A registered student after obtaining the coaching completion certificate can appear at the foundation examination any number of times.

Change of place of residence subsequent to registration

Data relating to the student with regard to academics is maintained at the regional offices. Therefore, once a student registers himself as a student for a particular level, he/she has to stick to the same and correspond with the same for all purposes, either academic or otherwise.

Only aspects relating to examinations are centralised i.e. processing examination applications, evaluation, verification of answer papers, issue of marks sheets, hall tickets, ... etc.

Shift to a Place within the Regional Council

Where the student changes his/her place of living in such a way that he/she has shifted to a place which falls within the purview of the same regional council with which he/she has registered earlier, nothing needs to be done.

Shift to a Place outside the Regional council

Even if a student moves from a place under a certain regional council to another place under a different regional council, his/her record is dealt with by the same regional council under which he/she has earlier registered.

Intimate the Change in Address

The student needs to get his/her address changed in the records of the institute so that he/she would be receiving the student news letter and other communications from the institute properly.

These students are also advised to intimate the post master of the earlier place of the change of address, so that any mail received at the earlier place would be redirected to the new place by the post master.

Eligibility to appear at the main exam - Is registration in time enough?

Registering before the cut off date is one and not the only requirement to enable a student to appear at a particular examination.

In addition to registering within time, a student also has to complete the compulsory coaching requirements (either ORAL or POSTAL) as well as other compulsory practical trainings he/she has to undergo before being made eligible for appearing at the examination.

A student has to complete the procedure involved in the coaching scheme to be eligible to appear at the exam. Thus, mere registering in time would not suffice.
