Exams Top News

The Supreme Court on Tuesday said that it will not postpone the upcoming Chartered Accountant (CA) Exam scheduled for July.

A Bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar, however, said that it will consider granting opt out to candidates who are unable to appear for the exam due to COVID-19 restrictions.

This was after the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) agreed to grant second chance to such candidates.

“We are only on opting out and situation when it can be granted. We are not on postponing the exams at all,” the Court made it clear.

The Court asked the ICAI to come up with a scheme to identify such students who can take the benefit of opt out.

The Court will hear the case again tomorrow when it is expected to pass orders on the aspect of opt out.
