Important Instruction to Candidates for November 2015 Examination

Mistakes generally committed in filling the online application form.While processing the examination application forms filled-in by the candidates, certain mistakes are usually found in a large number of forms leading thereby to avoidable delays at our end and avoidable correspondence with the candidates. The end result is delay in release of admit card to’ the students, causing thereby unwanted anxiety at both the ends.
Candidates intending to appear in the ensuing November, 2015 examination are therefore, individually urged to take some time off from their routine while filling up the form and keep in mind the following critical columns in order to help us to serve them better.

Do not open more than one session at the same time on the same computer while filling the online form. i.e; do not fill more than one form at the same time on the same computer even if you are filling the two applications using different browsers or different tabs of the same browser.

Clear the temporary internet files and cookies before filling up each form.

Fill up the form at a suitable time and from a location where you have a good bandwidth available using browsers Internet Explorer versions (7.0 onwards), Mozilla Firefox(4.0 onwards), Google Chrome(20.0 onwards) or Safari(3.2 onwards). Do NOT fill the form using mobile phones.

I) Name: You should check that the name is appearing correctly at the time of registering for filling up the online form. In case the login has been created provisionally then take care to enter the name correctly as given in your registration letter issued by the Board of Studies.

Suppose your name is Vijay Pratap Singh Rathore, you have to write exactly as given in the registration letter. Do not write Rathore Vijay P. Singh or in any other manner.

2) Medium: You must carefully select the medium as either ENGLISH or HINDI and ensure its correctness at the confirmation page before proceeding to make online payment. Else, English will be taken as the medium and no request for change will be entertained thereafter

4) Examination / Group / Unit Applied: You have to correctly select the correct option of Examination/Group/Unit in which you intend to appear in the ensuing examination. No request for change of group shall be entertained subsequently. Please note that there is no provision in the Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988 to appear in the same group which was declared earlier as passed. Appearing in the same group/s which was passed earlier is violation of Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988.

Candidates are advised to note that “Unit scheme” refers to different combinations of papers of Intermediate (IPC) Examination which are required to be passed in one sitting (like a Group), meant for the candidates who have passed one of the groups but not both the groups in Intermediate Examination under the syllabus specified under Paragraph 2A of Schedule B of Chartered Accountants Regulations 1988 ( i.e. Nov. 1994 or later) /PE II/ PCE in order to complete either one or both the groups of Intermediate (IPC) Examination. For details refer to Appendix A herein attached or the FAQs on the subject hosted on our website www.icai.org.

Hence, candidates are advised to correctly select the ‘Exam Applied’ while filling up the exam form online and check for the correct selection displayed on the confirmation page before proceeding for making online payment.

5) Registration Number: While creating the login, please enter your registration number exactly  as you have been intimated by the Institute in the Board of Studies registration letter issued to you. Your registration number is of 10 digits and starts either with WRO, SRO, NRO, ERO, CRO or FRO, e.g. ERO0046241, NRO009073, CR00301023, WRO0163021 or SR00201634, etc. Please note that the character after the  alphabet  ‘R’ in the above samples is the capital alphabet ‘O’  and not 0 (zero). Hence the first three character of the student registration number are alphabets and the remaining seven are numbers.

The candidates who have not been allotted new unique registration number may kindly contact the concerned Regional Office of ICAI for the issuance of the same. In the meanwhile the students may write their old Registration number in the space provided for filling up the Registration number.
Since exemption secured in a paper/s by a candidate are tracked and given credit for, based on the registration number of the candidate, candidates are advised to exercise due care in entering the registration number correctly and ensure that the same is entered without any error.

6) Exemptions: It is seen that many candidates, while entering the relevant details against the papers in which they secured exemption, candidates enter the details against the papers which are not relevant for the Group for which they are applying, i.e. if they are applying for Group I, they enter the details against the papers of Group II in which they might be having a valid exemption and vice versa. Candidates can check their valid exemption at http://exemptions.icaiexam.icai.org

If you are applying for only Group I, enter the exemption details in the papers of Group I in which you are holding a valid exemption, i.e. papers 1 to 4 and not those relating to Group II.

If you are applying for both the groups, you may enter the exemption details against the papers of both the groups, in which you are holding a valid exemption.
