2. PARENTS/ GUARDIANS ARE NOT ALLOWED INTO THE REGISTRATION HALL (THIS APPLIES TO ALL CBT CENTRES).

The registrar visited some of the CBT Centers which were overcrowded, after inspecting some of the registration centers, he has decided parents/guardians are not allowed to enter the registration hall, this applies to all CBT centers across the country.
