You can take the exams in any order for any of the certs.

All prerequisites must be met to get the certification.

CCNA is a prerequisite for CCNP, so while you can take any of the exams in any order for any of the certifications ... you must have the CCNA before you can be awarded the CCNP certification because the CCNA certification is a prerequisite for CCNP.

1) Yes

2) No, not till he passes CCNA.

Good Luck

Ok no issue if I don't get the certification for CCNP , can I appear for BSCI & BCMSN exam and could get the mark sheets.

Correct. You can take any exam at any time ... there are no prerequisites for exams, with the exception of the CCIE: You must pass the CCIE written in order to take the CCIE Lab.

However, to qualify for the certification, you must meet all of the prerequisites (in this case, hold a valid CCNA).

Good Luck
