Accordingly, there would be no sale of OMR examination application forms for students’ examinations across the sale counters of the Institute, for Nov 2018 Examination. Thus, CA Foundation/CPT, CA IPCC, CA Intermediate and CA Final candidates have to fill up and submit their ICAI exam forms online.

But, before you start following the steps mentioned hereunder for ICAI exam form online, please keep in mind some most useful and important points:

1) You may use any latest and updated version of web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari through your Personal Computer (PC) and Laptop. I personally recommend you to use Internet Explorer which works without any errors. But never try to fill up the CA exam form using your mobile phones even you have high speed connection data 3G/4G package.

Fill up only one online exam form at a time and don’t forget to clear your browsers temporary files and cookies (Ctrl + Shift + Delete) before filling another form, if any, for the coming CA examinations.

5) Keep on hand your VISA or MASTER Credit/ Debit Card for payment of Examination Fee. Even if you have not either of these cards, you may use Virtual Credit Card to be accepted as VISA Credit Cards.

6) Keep scanned copy of Declaration /Certificate of Service signed by your principal or member of ICAI.
