In view of the Covid-19 prevailing situation, ICAI has decided to cancel May 2020 Examinations and merge the May 2020 attempt with November 2020 Examinations, with due carryover of all benefits already available to students including fee paid and exemptions.
The students who have made application for May 2020 Examinations will have an option to change the group(s) of their appearance and centre of Examinations at the time of making a fresh application for November 2020 Examinations, which, subject to conditions prevailing at relevant time, will start from 1st November 2020.
In this schema, the students will be free to exercise the options afresh for the groups that they intend to appear in the November 2020 examinations.
The decision came in view of the fact that with Unlock-1, the severity of COVID 19 Pandemic has become more severe and also the Government in Unlock-2 Guidelines has extended the closure of all schools & academic Institutions and academic congregations till 31st July 2020.
