CA exams to be held online, post pandemic scenario

Wednesday - January 13, 2021 12:37 pm , Category : WTN SPECIAL

Although during the peak stage of Covid-19 pandemic, Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), the statutory body that manages the CA profession in the country, had gone ahead with exams in physical mode but  world’s second largest professional body of CAs, has now decided to conduct online exams only. CA exams are conducted in May and November ever year. However,owing to the pandemic, the exams scheduled in May last year were postponed multiple times and later merged with the November exams.
 
Before the November 2020 exams, some students had even filed a writ petition before the Supreme Court raising safety concerns  which was disposed of by the court. “We are seriously considering all the possible options to make all the exams of all three levels – foundation, intermediate andfinal stages of CA – online. Our Delhi council is exploring the means. We will adopt the best model,” said Lalit Bajaj, chairman ofWestern India Regional Council (WIRC) of ICAI said on Tuesday. “The nature of CA exams is quite different. While the questions are asked in analytical format, the answers are not objective type but descriptive in nature. Currently, we have lot of MCQ-based models for online examinations. We are exploring an alternative online model which assesses analytical skills keeping in mind all safety concerns,” said WIRC’s vice-chairman Vishal Doshi.Unlike exams conducted by other institutes, the CA exams are held nation-wide and continue for days together.

“There are other competitive exams which are held for a day or couple of days. But CA exams are held pan-India and they go on for 25 days covering all the three stages – making it a challenging task,” said Doshi. Meanwhile, the CA examinations for the students who had opted-out from November 2020 examinations and opted for November 2020 cycle-II are scheduled from January 21 to February 7.
