New Delhi: As per new norms, students can seek provisional admission to the foundation course of Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) after clearing class 10 exams.
“The institute has recently got the approval of the government for amending the regulations 25E, 25F & 28F of Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988, which now enables candidate to provisionally register in the Foundation Course of ICAI after passing Class 10 examinations. However, provisional admission to foundation course will only be regularized once the candidate clears class 12 exams,” ICAI president Atul Kumar Gupta said.
“This will help students prepare for the foundation course while pursuing classes 11 and 12, and thus students will 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,” Gupta explained.
Elaborating further, he said: “Students will be able to complete four months study 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.”
