Proposed KASNEB  supplementary exams put on hold

However, in a social media post  on November 23, 2019 , KASNEB announced the suspension of the plan to hold supplementary exams -proposed to be held in February 2020- until further notice.

  1. Am ATD graduate who did ATC level 1and 2 and proceeded to ATD, will i be given 2 certificates or one for ATD.
    For syllabus review i think you should use the current one that board reviewed last year n certificates they take too long to be realesed, reduce the duration to one month.thanks.

    • Nope..Certificate is just 1 after you have passed all the ATD units. Regarding certificates, certificates come out pretty fast and there is a storage charge for failing to collect them on time. Call KASNEB for confirmation
