You should start doing all this process atleast 4 months before you want to give the exam . Now depending on how strong is your knowledge base and how much score are you targeting for it will take you somewhere from 6 months to a year for the preparation of this exam. Just keep in mind that when you select a triad of three months you can only extend it for once i-e if you choose july-sep for triad and by the end of triad you feel you are not ready and want to extend you can do that by a small fee to oct-dec but if you wont give exam by that time your fee would be gone and you have to apply again for the exam and pay the whole fee again. So dont rush in taking the triad right now
