Re-registration & Premature Re-registration

After expiry of six years, you have to apply for AMIE re-registration

Please let me know from when 6 years' term counted after re-registration?

Six years period shall be counted from Summer examination. For example, if six years period of a candidate expired in Winter 2013 examination, re-registration period of six years shall be counted from Summer 2014 irrespective of the month and year the candidate submits his application during the currency period of re-registration. To know about your 6 year period details, please send an email to debasis.nath@ieindia.org

Explain with examples how to compute 6 years' term for re-registration purposes.

Section A

Add 12 semesters from your date of election. Then your membership will be valid till Winter of that year.

Example 1: Suppose date of election of a student is February 25, 2014. As it is before February 28, your semesters will be S14 to W19. We get 2020. So, membership will be valid till Winter 2019.

Example 2: Suppose date of election of a student is March 25, 2014. As it is after February 28, your semesters will be from W14 to S20.  So, membership will be valid till Winter 2020.

Example 3: Suppose date of election of a student is August 25, 2014. As it is before August 31, your semesters will be W14 to S20. So, membership will be valid till Winter 2020.

Example 4: Suppose date of election of a student is September 25, 2014. As it is after August 31,  your semesters will be from S15 to W20.  So, membership will be valid till Winter 2020.

Section B

In case of Section B re-registration, 6 year period start from next semester of passing Section A. Add 12 semesters to it. Membership will be valid till Winter of this year.

Example 1: If a student passes Section A in Summer 2014 then his Section B will start from Winter 2014. Your semesters will be from W14 to S20. Hence membership is valid till Winter 2020.

Example 2: If a student passes Section A in Winter 2014 then his Section B will start from Summer 2015. Your semesters will be from S15 to W20. Hence membership is valid till Winter 2020.

My date of election is before 01/06/2013. Why re-registration is better option for me instead of fresh membership?

You must definitely apply for re-registration if your membership date is before 01/06/2013 because in that case your AMIE will be considered as recognized. Why? Read this.
