Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has now made it possible for the aspirants to provisionally register in the CA Foundation course after passing Class 10 examination. Until now, students were only eligible to apply for the foundational course after clearing Class 12.
The announcement was made on ICAI’s twitter handle along with a formally written announcement –
As per Atul Kumar Gupta, President, ICAI, this move “will help students to prepare for the foundation course while pursuing class 11 and 12 and thus students would have ample time to update their knowledge and acquire requisite techniques to appear and pass CA foundation with flying colours. The ICAI also offers free online classes to students of the foundation which can be accessed anytime, anywhere.”
Clarifying the new eligibility norms, Gupta added, “Students will be able to complete four months study period while pursuing class 11 and 12 and appear in foundation examination in the month of May or June immediately after appearing in class 12 examination. With the new norms, students will be able complete CA course and become Chartered Accountant, six months in advance, due to early admission.”
