INSTRUCTIONS TO EXAMINEES-November, 2010

IMPORTANT NOTE: IPCE(Integrated Professional Competence Examination) Candidates must note the changed sequence of papers (as given in the time table printed on reverse of admit card) for November, 2010 examinations and that the examination for Group-I will commence on 9th November, 2010 and Group-II will commence on 11th November, 2010. Further all the IPCE UNIT candidates should check that their admit card is for a unit, otherwise they should inform to Examination Department of the Institute in writing requesting for correction and should appear only in papers of respective unit.

1.

Immediately on receipt of the Admit card, every candidate is expected to verify all the facts, i.e. Roll No., Name, Group or Groups or Unit, Examination Timing/Session, Dates of examination, Sequence of Papers, Examination Centre etc. In case of doubt he/she is expected to approach the Superintendent concerned or the Sr. Deputy Director (Exams.), sufficiently in advance.

It may be noted that the Superintendents have been advised to verify the identity of each candidate at the time of his/her entry into the examination hall. The admit card downloaded from our website which does not bear the photograph of the candidate is also a valid admit card and the identity of a candidate will be determined with the help of the image of the candidate and his specimen signature on the Attendance Register. Candidates are, however, advised, in their own interest, to carry with them (along with the admit card down-loaded from website) the identity cards issued to them at the time of their registration for articles (erstwhile Intermediate)/Professional Education Course/ Professional Competence Course / Integrated Professional Competence Course by the Board of Studies section of the Decentralized Office or the identity card issued to them by the Decentralized Office at the time of their registration as articled clerks or (where applicable) the identity cards earlier issued by the Examination Department of the Institute if the same are still valid.
