All ADIT exam passes obtained from June 2010 are valid for five years from the date of issue. If you do not complete the qualification before your first pass expires, you will need to resit the previously passed exam.

ADIT thesis registrations are valid for three years from the date on which the thesis proposal is approved. Please note that, if your student registration expires during this three year period and you have not yet completed your thesis, you will need to renew your student registration before submitting your completed thesis.
