What is meant by verification of Answer Books?

Many students confused with the term verification of marks. Verification of books does not mean that your CA Foundation, CA Intermediate/ IPCC and CA Final exam answer sheet would be rechecked or evaluate again.

Therefore, the process of verification of marks covers only the following checking that whether:

  • the answer book(s) compilation is complete;
  • any question or part thereof has remained unvalued;
  • the handwriting of the candidate in all the answer books is the same;
  • there is any totaling error in any question or total marks on the cover page;
  • there is any discrepancy between the marks for each question and or/part thereof and marks for each question indicated on the cover page of the answer book.
