What is Provisional Registration?
A provisional registration is a registration that is temporary and which would be regularised on fulfilling certain conditions in the future. The registration would be canceled if the conditions required are not met within the prescribed time limit.
Provisional Registration enables you to register for the course without having to wait for the results of the qualifying examination.
Who can register Provisionally?
Students who are pursuing their final year graduation (10 + 2 + 3) are eligible for registration for the course if they are confident of getting through their final year graduation examinations.
Those who have appeared or enrolled themselves for appearing at the qualifying examination are also eligible
Those who have enrolled for the qualifying examination but have not yet appeared at the said examination i.e. those whose examinations have not yet begun are also eligible. Such candidates should have received the hall ticket for the exam, which forms a proof for having applied for the exam.
Procedure for Provisional Registration
The procedure for registering provisionally is the same as that for Regular Registration.
The application for registration is the same as the one used for regular registration. The difference being that, a candidates appends a copy of the examination hall ticket for provisional registration instead of a copy of the marks sheet of the qualifying examination.
Supplementary Candidates are those candidates who are qualifying in the qualifying examinations during the september/october supplementary examinations.
They are treated on par with the regular candidates. A student appearing at the qualifying exam for the first time in his/her career and the one appearing after a prior failed attempt would have the same standing.
Candidates appearing for the supplementary examinations can also register provisionally at that time (i.e. after appearing for the supplementary examination or after getting the hall ticket for the supplementary examination as the case may be).
Advanced Supplementary Candidates
The normal examination pattern includes the conduction of final examination during the months of march/april/may and supplementary examinations during the months of September/October/November.
Some universities and boards are conducting the supplementary examinations within a short time gap after the results of the main examinations are announced. This generally would fall somewhere in the month of May/June/July.
Registering with the Advanced Supplementary Exam Hall Ticket
A candidates can get registered for the Intermediate Level/Course based on the hall ticket for the advanced supplementary examinations.
Registered with main exam hall ticket - required to attend Advanced Supplementary Exam
Candidates who have registered provisionally for the courses based on the hall ticket issued to them for the final examination in March/April/May need not register again, if they have failed at that examination and are appearing at the advanced supplementary examination.
If they pass the advanced supplementary examination, that would form the proof of passing the qualifying examination.
Provisional Registration is subject to the condition that the candidate would provide the result of the said qualifying examination within the prescribed time limit i.e. 6 months from the date of making application for registration.
Failure to Provide Results
Failing to provide the results of the qualifying examination would result in the registration getting canceled.
A candidate whose registration is canceled on account of failure to submit the proof of passing the qualifying examination will have to register afresh to pursue the course.
No consideration would be given for the coaching (oral/postal) for the course that has already been taken up or completed.
