They must submit proof of passing their final examinations with requisite marks by 31 October 2012.

Candidates with foreign diplomas should see the EdCIL website for equivalence (http://www.edcil.co.in ), and if required should obtain an equivalence certificate from the evaluation division of the AIU (website http://www.aiuweb.org ).
In case any Board / University awards grades instead of marks, the calculation of equivalent marks would be based on the procedure prescribed by the Board / University. In case a University does not have any scheme for converting CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing obtained CGPA with the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the resultant with 100.
At any level of the studies [class X, class XII or graduation], a candidate / applicant must have passed all the required subjects at that level from the same Board/ University.
