The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has announced plans to increase the frequency of CA Foundation and Inter exams from twice a year to three times. This change is expected to be implemented after the May exams. The decision aims to alleviate pressure on CA aspirants by offering more opportunities to take exams without long waiting periods. While the CA Final exam will remain biannual for now, ICAI may consider extending the increased frequency to four attempts per year based on feedback. Additionally, ICAI addressed concerns about potential exam date clashes with general elections, reassuring students that decisions will be made promptly once election dates are announced, with adjustments likely only for specific subjects or states if necessary. Once election dates are announced, ICAI will assess the situation and make necessary adjustments, potentially revising exam dates for specific subjects or states if needed.
