Hosting of Exemption details granted in CA Exams valid for May 2017
Some of the candidates of CA Intermediate (IPC) and CA Final carry a misconception that they enjoy an exemption in a paper(s) whereas in reality they do not and end up absenting themselves in the said paper, resulting in avoidable hardships.
Accordingly, ICAI has developed a website to host all exemption related information where you may check the status of exemption(s) in a paper granted in the Intermediate and Final examinations, valid for the coming exams i.e. May 2017. In other words, CA Institute has hosted the details of exemptions granted in papers of CA Intermediate and Final so that candidates may check their exemption status before exams.

ICAI Clarifications regarding Exemptions in CA Exam paper(s)
After receiving certified copies of answer books in respect of CA examinations some students notice that in some papers, marks awarded to them on the Answer Books are at variance with those on the Statement of Marks issued to them. Thereafter they seek clarification from ICAI. Accordingly, CA Institute has clarified that
- Variance of marks between those on the answer books and those on the statement of marks issued to candidates is on account of revision of marks by the Examination Committee, under regulation 39(2) of the CA Regulations, 1988 prior to declaration of results of the examination;
- Such revision is taken into consideration while processing the results and the revised marks are shown on the statement of marks;
- Such revised marks are not indicated on the answer books of the candidates and
- Marks in the statement of marks issued to candidates are final.
Therefore, you should verify the status of exemptions, if any, that you think that you had been granted in a paper, from the statement of marks sent to you and not on the basis of marks stated on the certified copies of answer books. Note that exemptions, if any, granted to a candidate in an examination are indicated on the statement of marks by way of a “#” sign against the marks of the paper in which exemption is granted and in such cases, where a candidate is granted exemption, the result of the group would be shown as “F-EX”, i.e. failed with exemption.
