The registration for CPT Course will be valid for a period of 3 years from the date the student becomes eligible to appear in CPT exam for the first time or for the period so long the student continues to appear in the examination regularly whichever is later. Accordingly the registration of a student will continue to be valid as long as the student continues to appear in the CPT exam irrespective of the period involved which may be beyond three years. After expiry of the period of 3 years from the date the student became eligible to appear in CPT for the first time, his registration will lapse. However, the registration shall not lapse if such student has appeared in at least one of the last two examinations conducted just before the end of three years. The registration of such student shall however lapse in case he subsequently does not appear in two consecutive examinations.
