Rescheduling of CA exam – How far good!

March 2009

The recent announcement of rescheduling of CA exams from its scheduled month of May to June this year primarily due to the forthcoming elections is by and large being seen as a BIG RELIEF in the minds of the CA students who have planned to appear for the CA exams this May. The rescheduling includes for levels i.e. CA – PCC and CA – Final.

Some may look at this as an opportunity to brush up their studies and preparation as they would look forward to utilize this extra bit of time on the reschedule of the exams. This seem to be a blessing for students who have been very busy with their college studies or Articleship as this extra time would put them in a more comfortable zone. This extra time would make students plan or re plan their study timings so that they can look ahead to clear up the exams more confidently and easily.

However, it may also be noticed that any re schedule which is not planned may disturb the momentum of students who have the habit to plan their studies in time and who follow regular routine studies dedicatedly. Any stretch or a squeeze can be real bothering for students in various ways.

Some might get panic seeing a long stretch of nearly a month while others may have been got a big relief with the announcement of re schedule.

Getting excited on such news is a normal human behaviour. For some this excitement brings smile and to others it can also be an added tension. One must remember that any such re schedule should be looked in a more matured way and not in excitement. One needs to really be at his / her toes and look at things more seriously rather than being excited as that might distract students for a period of time which might be JUST long enough to take every thing even Lot far!

Any such unplanned developments are very serious issues and one must make sure that he or she does not get carried away in any desired anticipations.

Planning this extra time for your studies is of utmost importance so that the momentum you have built in month’s time does not get affected by this. Hence, be cautious and confident of your preparation. Nothing can stop you clear the exams and be a Leading Chartered Accountant of tomorrow if you are confident of your self and have a dedicated attitude toward your studies.

CA exams though considered to be tough to clear have been looked upon as the most demanding career option not only by students of commerce stream but also for students who looking for an alternative career being a science graduate / post graduate.

Demand for accountants and finance professionals in India and overseas although have surely taken a blow with the general downturn in the economy but still students with a long term vision have been choosing CA as their career option. To keep the intake of students growing even in these challenging times, the respective institutes like ICAI, ICSI, ICWAI have been constantly been thinking to so bring in more attractiveness in their course modules and also by showing their positive attitude to the masses by opening up themselves for external tie up with allied institutions across globe and also within the country.

The recent move of the ICAI to conduct the foundation examination (currently known as Common Proficiency test – CPT) as multiple choice examinations. Also the Institute has started off with conducting CPT Online so that students find it an upgradation of traditional concept of writing examinations by going to examination halls. What’s exciting to watch is will the same move be possible for other levels of the examination been conducted i.e. PCC and CA – Final.
