Eligibility to start article training

VIJAY SHARMA (student) (173 Points)

14 December 2012  

A STUDENT CLEARED CPT AND APPEARED IN IPCC GR 1 IN NOV 12. IN THE MEANTIME HE PASSED B COM WITH 55%. HE HAS REGISTERED FOR BOTH THE TRAINING PROGRAMMES BUT IN WAITING AS SEATS NOT AVAILABLE AT CHANDIGARH.

CAN HE START ARTICLE TRAINING BEFORE 31.03.2013 IF HE FAILS TO PASS GR 1 OF IPCC ?

THE ICAI HAS EXEMPTED BOTH TRAING PROGRAMMES TO START ARTICLE TRAINING TILL 31.03.2013. MY QUESTION IS WHETHER HE CAN START TRAINING WITHOUT PASSING GR 1 BUT PASSING B COM WITH MORE THAN 55% ?
