I have completed 8 months of articleship in Jan 2013 and my working hours were nearly 50 hrs a week. For some personal reason ,I had to take a leave for 3 months from Feb 2013. I have still not registered for Gmcs-1. Will the number of months for my articleship completion be counted as 8 months or 11 months? I have to complete Gmcs-1 within 1 year and I have not done the same till date for this reason I'm asking about the tenure of my articleship. 1 year of my articleship will be completed in mid May 2013. Can, I register for the may batch? or because of the leave, I can register after may? What will be the consequences if I fail to Complete Gmcs-1 before the prescribed limit of 1 year?
