ICAI postpones reopening of correction window for changing CA exam centre due to coronavirus lockdown
In April, the institute waived off the condonation fee charged on delay in filing application forms related to practical training.
The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has deferred the re-opening of the correction window for seeking a change of exam centre in view of the coronavirus lockdown.
“As the lockdown position will become clear in the next couple of days, it has been decided that this window be opened after the fresh guidelines are received so that the students can make up their mind and apply for the centre change accordingly,” said the ICAI.
The institute had earlier announced that the correction window for candidates who have applied for the CA Exam 2020 would be opened from 7 to 9 June.
The schedule for CA exams has also been announced. The papers will be held from 29 July to 16 August.
The exams were initially slated to be conducted from 2 to 18 May but got postponed due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Later, the ICAI decided to hold papers in June and July, but it had to be again delayed in view of the prevailing situation in the country.
In April, the institute waived off the condonation fee charged on delay in filing application forms related to practical training. The decision was taken in view of the hardship faced by the students due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It also began free live revision classes for intermediate and final level students from 22 April to help students revise the syllabus for the forthcoming examination.
"I guess you don't own your body. That's what it comes down to. If you want to work in society today, then I guess they made the rules of what goes in your body and what you do. The only options were to get vaccinated or not play in the NBA. It was a tough decision," Wiggins said.
