bulletCandidates will not be eligible for appearing in the relevant examination if their Registration forms are received after the stipulated date, except in the specific cases as may be notified by NIELIT from time to time.
bulletOnce registered at a particular Level, the registration is valid for ten consecutive examinations for O/A Levels and twelve consecutive examinations for B/C Levels, reckoned from the next eligible examination as indicated in the allocation- cum Identity Card.
  • It is advisable that candidates register themselves as early as possible without waiting for the cut-off date.
  • If a candidate qualifies at the lower Level and wish to continue in the Scheme, he must register at the next Higher Level. In such a case, he / she needs to submit a filled in online Registration Application Form through the login created by candidate earlier for next higher Level with all relevant eligibility documents and the Registration fee well before the last dates.

bulletIn case a candidate qualifies in certain modules/papers at a Level and appears for the remaining modules/papers at that Level, and pending the announcement of results, registers at a higher Level, in anticipation of passing the lower Level, the candidate will forfeit the chances of appearing in the modules/papers in which the candidate is unsuccessful at the lower Level.
