Graduation & Registration

Hey guys, my graduation date is Spring 2024 (Bachelors) , CFA institute says that to register for CFA L1 you need to be 11 months away from your graduation date. Should I register for May, or will I be able to register for Feb? And if I can, should I register for Feb? I am thinking because results take 2 months and If I take the test in May, I’ll get the results in July/Aug by that time I’ll have trouble applying for jobs because a lot of FT 2024 positions will close. What is your opinion?
