Question-2: I had not affixed my photograph in the exam form. Can I send them now?
Answer: Yes. However, once the admit cards are posted/hosted, no changes will be made thereon. The photographs will be used at the time of preparation of pass certificates. Accordingly, CA Institute recommend you to carry with you a photo identity card issued by the Govt. or by ICAI at the time of registration as articles assistants, to the examination hall, along with the admit card downloaded/printed from the website.
Question-3: What will I do if my CA Exam Admit card does not contain my Photo and Signature?
Answer: Some candidates submitted their exam forms online but did not send a print-out of their online exam forms after affixing their photographs and signatures thereon. Accordingly, admit cards of such candidates, hosted on the website, will not contain their photographs and signatures.
If this is your case then don’t worry. You are just required to carry any one of the following photo identification otherwise you will not be allowed entry into the Examination Centre:
A) Voter’s card;
B) Driving License;
D) Identity Card issued by College etc.
Question-4: But sir what happens if I have no any of the above mentioned documents for Identity? Can I use my AADHAAR Card for identity purpose?
Answer: ICAI has not yet allowed Aadhaar card as photo identity for the admission to the CA examination hall. Therefore, if you do not have any of the above mentioned photo identity cards, you may get your photos attested by a Chartered Accountant or a Gazetted Officer and carry the same to the examination Centre, as proof of your identity.
Question-5: Sir, I have a valid exemption but in my Admit Card there is no information about Exempted Papers. Please tell me whether I got my exemption or have to appear again?
Answer: The first thing you should know that any information regarding exempted papers are not shown in CA Exam Admit Card. So, don’t worry about that.
The exemption granted are reflected in your Mark Sheet itself. You will see a sign/symbol of # (hashtag) in your previous printed marksheet indicating that you have got an exemption in that respective subjects. The result of that particular Group will show F-Ex i.e. failed with exemption.
Thereafter, an alphabet “E” will be printed against the marks of the exempted paper(s) which means that marks of that paper have been brought forward from an exemption granted in that paper in an earlier attempt.
Note that the exemption is valid for the next immediate 3 consecutive examination only and during this period, exemption in other subject(s) of the same group is not granted even if you secure 60 or more marks.
