SC hearing about ICAI Exams May 2020

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) today sought time from the Supreme Court to issue fresh guidelines regarding the present cycle of this year's CA exams.

During today's hearing, the Court observed that the ICAI should consider permitting the students to opt out of the exams till the last day, as the situation around COVID-19 is dynamic and not static (Anubha Shrivasta Sahai v. ICAI).

"The change of centre should not be be freezed but should be open for all till the end. Till the last week...You need to be flexible, you cannot be rigid."
Supreme Court

"You have to make a provision then that if a student passes the exam in November, you have to say that it means they have passed the exam in July."
Supreme Court
