Sleepless nights, heartbeats racing, checking your phone time and again. Engineering students call it love, doctors call it anxiety, CA students, well, we call it results month. And it is that time of the year again. Doesn’t matter how we performed in our exams, we search for result date predictions at least thrice a day. (We tried to guess the result date as well, check it out from the link below.)

Check Out | CA Results May 2019 Expected Date

Well, this one, this is a generic blog. We are not guessing anything here. Just stating what’s already known. What are CA exams, why are they such a big deal, how can you get your result through SMS or email, past pass percentages, methods of revaluation, and those sort of things. So, *kripya apni kursi ki peti baandh le* It’s not going to be a roller coaster ride or anything but just for fun.

What Are CA Exams?

CA Exams are qualifying exams to become a Chartered Accountant in India. These exams are conducted by The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. These are the most prestigious and terrifying exam for a commerce student. They become all the way more important because of the low pass percentage. So, students waiting for their CA results is kinda big deal. Well, obviously you know that. You are a CA student after all.

Why are CA Exams and CA results such a big deal?

Didn’t I tell you already? Because of the excruciating pass percentage. They have gone to as low as 2%. So, freaked out students scrolling through their phones for the expected date of result is a pretty normal sight. By the way, did you check our guess for the expected result date or not? It’s in the above-mentioned link. Go, check it out.

How to get CA Results through SMS?

ICAI has provided the facility to get the results through SMS or email. The websites for CA results sometimes crash due to the heavy traffic inflow. So, to avoid a panic attack while checking your result through SMS or email can prove to be a good practice. 

How to get the result through SMS?

All you need is your roll number. Students have to send a message on 58888 to get their result. 

If you are a CA Foundation Student-

Check CA Foundation results through SMS by sending CAFND(space)ROLL NUMBER to 58888. For eg, CAFND 003000 and send it to 58888.

If you are a CA Intermediate Student-

Verification or asking for inspection/certified copies of evaluated answer scripts:

Doesn’t it happen that at times, we get the result but an inner voice says that something is wrong? We can feel that this can’t be right. Well, the ICAI has a remedy for this, too. We can get our answer scripts verified and ask for inspection/certified copies of evaluated answer scripts.

What is the Procedure for doing so?

A candidate can apply for verification, either physically in his own handwriting, or online from http://icaiexam.icai.org within a month from the date of declaration of results, giving specific details of the following along with the requisite fees:

  • Student Name
  • Student Registration No 
  • Exam-Intermediate (IPC)/Final/CPT 
  • Month and year of the exam
  • Roll Number
  • Paper(s)/subjects to be verified
  • Address for communication 

If the candidate makes a physical application, it must be in the handwriting of the candidate. If the candidate had opted for Hindi medium in the examination, his/her application should be in Hindi. 

Typewritten applications will not be entertained.

The application should be duly signed by the candidate. 

Whom to address the physical application?

The physical application for verification along with the fees should be sent so as to reach the Institute within a period of one month from the date of the declaration of results, at the following address, by Speed Post or Registered Post: 

The Deputy Secretary (Exams)

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India

ICAI Bhawan

Indraprastha Marg

New Delhi 110 002

Fees:
  • For Final, Intermediate (IPC)/ATE/Units-Rs 100/- per paper subject to a maximum of Rs 400/- for all the papers of a group/both groups/Unit.
  • For CPT: Rs 200/-. 

How was this factual post helpful? Yes, we all are wondering the same. These are the facts that people keep telling us when we don’t need them. But, the moment we are in a rush to get help, everybody becomes unavailable all of a sudden. We don’t find those experts when we need to know how to apply for evaluation. They disappear when we need some hints about passing percentages. We are our own heroes. Think of the early qualified CAs. Nobody was there to guide them. They did not blame anybody. It is our rightful duty to do all the necessary research and make informed decisions.
