Correction window for CA May 16 Exams

Correction Window-1
It is found that some candidates while filling the examination application form (either online or physical ) do not exercise reasonable care and commit errors and seek change of Centre/Group/Medium, on account of errors committed by them in their examination application forms, after submission.
With a view to provide an opportunity to the candidates to correct such errors made by them while submitting their examination application forms, it has been decided to put in place an online facility to view and correct errors if any, committed by them while submitting the examination application form, in the fields of Centre/Group/Medium, (i.e. for seeking change of Centre/Group/Medium).
The salient features of the facility are as follows:

• Manual applications seeking change of Centre/Group/Medium will not be entertained.

• The on-line window for seeking change of Centre/Group/Medium will made available at http://icaiexam.icai.org.

• This online facility will be available to the candidates, in two separate sessions. The first opportunity (called “Correction Window”) will be free of cost and the second opportunity ( called “Corrections with fee-Window”) will be for a fee of Rs 1000/- .

• Candidates will be able to check the status of their request for change of Centre/Group/Medium from the above-mentioned website.

Detailed procedure and the norms governing this facility are hosted on www.icai.org
