  6. Hello Sir,
    I am an IPCC student and got registered in 2009 after passing CPT. I have not yet cleared any groups of the IPCC.I just wanted to know,whether i can get myself registered(Fresh Registration) again in IPCC on the basis of passing graduation(if the amendment is approved by the Govt.) with a new registration number.Is it possible or not,please reply.Thanks in advance.

    • Exemption from appearing for CPT exams is not yet approved by the Government so, it is better if you get registered for IPCC on the basis CPT marks
