FAQs on admit
cards-November 2015 CA exams


 1. How do I get my
admit card?

Admit cards in respect of candidates admitted to the
Intermediate (IPC) and Final November 2015 examination, with their photographs
and signatures on them, are hosted on www.icai.nic.in.

 Candidates may print their admit cards from the website.

 In terms of the
decision of the Examination Committee of the Institute, physical admit cards
are being sent by post, only to those who submitted physical examination forms
( i.e. OMR form). The practice of sending physical admit cards by post, to
those who had submitted their exam forms online, is discontinued with effect
from May 2014 examination onwards. Further, with effect from May 2015 exams,
physical admit cards will be printed on A 4 size plain paper instead of on pre
printed admit card stationery.

Physical admit cards as mentioned above, sent by post as
well as those printed from the website are valid for admission to the
examination.

Admit card downloaded from the website contains your
photograph and specimen signature, besides other necessary details and is a
valid admit card for gaining admission to the examination. However, should
there be still any query, feel free to contact the Helpline numbers of the Exam
dept. given in answer to Question No.14.

 2. Will the admit
cards contain my photograph and signature?

 Yes, if the application you have submitted contains them.

 3. I had not affixed
my photograph in the exam form. Can I send them now?

 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. We advise you to carry with you a photo
identity card issued by the Govt. agencies or by ICAI at the time of
registration as articled assistants, to the examination hall, along with the
admit card downloaded/printed from the website. Also please refer to the reply
to question no. 7 given herein below.

 4. How do I print my
admit card from the website

 Visit the site http://www.icai.nic.in.

 Enter the following:

Select the examination for which you submitted
the exam form

·        
Student registration number or the bar code of
the examination form; and

·        
Personal Identification Number (PIN) indicated
by you in your application form.

 Your admit card and the “Instructions to
Examinees” will appear on the screen. You can then print the same in A 4
size paper.

entered in your exam form. It is like a password. Without this, you will not be
able to download/print your admit card from the website.

 6. I forgot my PIN.
What can I do now?

 We had advised you, earlier, while you filled up the exam
form, to memorise or keep it safe for future reference. We had also advised you
to keep a copy of the exam form for reference at a later date, if need be. You
can now check the copy of the form for the PIN.

 If you had not complied with that, you may call our Helpline
numbers of the Exam Dept. or the respective regional office(s) for assistance
in the matter.

 7. My photograph
and/or signature are not there in the admit card. Is it valid?

 Yes. It is valid. However, in such cases where your
photograph is not on the admit card, you should carry a photo identity card
issued by the Govt. agencies or issued by ICAI at the time of registration as
articled assistants, failing which you will not be allowed entry into the
examination hall.

 Else, you may get your photograph and signature attested by
a Chartered Accountant or a Gazetted Officer on his official letterhead( in
duplicate) indicating inter-alia the following:

Name

Registration Number

 and carry the same to the examination centre, as proof of
your identity. You will be required to hand over the original to the exam
centre and retain one copy for yourselves.

 You are also advised to carry one* stamp size photograph
(matching with the photograph affixed on the attested letter referred above) to
the exam centre for affixing the same at the appropriate place in the
attendance register.

 10. I have not yet
received the physical admit card sent by post by ICAI. What should I do?

 In terms of the
decision of the Examination Committee of the Institute, physical admit cards
are being sent by post, only to those who submitted physical examination forms
( i.e. OMR ).

 The practice of
sending physical admit cards by post, to those who had submitted their exam
forms online, is discontinued with effect from May 2014 examination onwards.

 Physical admit cards ( printed on plain A-4 size sheet,
instead of on pre printed admit card stationery), to those who had submitted
physical exam forms ( i.e. OMR forms) have already been dispatched. You will be
receiving them shortly. However, even if you do not receive them, due to delays
in transit, do not worry. You can print your admit card from the website
http://www.icai.nic.in and carry the same to the examination hall. It is also
valid.

 11. I have not yet
received the physical admit card sent by post by ICAI. Can I have a duplicate
admit card issued?

 No. Duplicate admit cards will not be issued. However, a
print out of the admit card on A4 size paper will be issued, on request, which
will be valid for admission to the examination. In fact, you can take a print
out of the admit card from the website www.icai.nic.in yourself and use the
same.

 12. I am not able to
print my admit card from the site. What should I do?

 Contact the Helpline numbers (mentioned below) immediately,
quoting your registration number, bar code number of your examination form and
receipt number issued by the regional office(s), centre opted (with zone, if
applicable), telephone number, fax number etc.

 13. I received my
admit card. I have a valid exemption in a paper. However, the admit card does
not show that exemption. Will I get the exemption?

 Exemptions granted to you are not shown on the admit card.
Please go through the relevant statement of marks of the exam, where in your
opinion, you were granted an exemption in a paper(s).

 Alphabet “E” printed against the marks of a paper
denotes that marks of that paper have been brought forward from an exemption
granted in that paper in an earlier attempt.

So also, “#” symbol printed against the marks of a
paper denotes that you have been granted an exemption in that paper, which will
be valid for the next three following exams. Also the result below that Group
shows “F-EX”

 If no such symbol or
alphabet is printed against the marks of any paper, even though the marks
obtained in that paper may be more than 60, then that indicates that no
exemption has been granted in that paper.

 Also kindly refer to the FAQs on exemptions hosted on the
website for more details.
