A person can register for CPT after completing Grade 10 and take the exam after completing High School (Grade 12). Every incorrect answer on the CPT exam carries a 0.25 negative mark. A candidate is considered to have cleared CPT if he/she, in a given attempt, obtains 30% in each of the 4 sections and a 50% aggregate in the entire examination.
