7) Option to answer Papers in Hindi:

Candidates of the Final examination are allowed to opt for Hindi Medium for answering question papers. Candidates desirous of answering papers in Hindi shall exercise their option at the very outset while making application for admission to the examination by filling the relevant columns. The option is available for all the papers of a group or both groups in entirety, as may be applicable. In other words, if a candidate appears in a single Group, he/she can opt for Hindi medium only for that group. If he/she appears in both the Groups then he/she has to exercise option for both the groups and not for a single group. No paper-wise option is allowed. If a candidate, who has not exercised his/her option to answer the papers in Hindi, however answers them in Hindi, he/she will not get any credit for his/her answer. The option once exercised shall be final and cannot be changed subsequently. In the absence of a clear indication by the candidate about the medium opted by him/her, English medium will be taken as medium of option. If a Hindi medium candidate answers all questions or a question or part thereof in English, he will not get any credit for such answer. However, Hindi medium candidates can write Numbers, Figures, Technical phrases/terms in English and can also solve numerical questions in English. Similarly if a English medium candidate answers all questions or aquestion or part thereof in Hindi, he will not get any credit for such answer.

MISTAKES GENERALLY COMMITTED IN FILLING THE ONLINE APPLICATION FORM

While processing the examination application forms filled-in by the candidates, certain mistakes are usually found in a large number of forms leading thereby avoidable delays at our end and avoidable correspondence with the candidates. The end result is delay in release of admit card to the students, causing thereby unwanted anxiety at both the ends .Candidates intending to appear in the ensuing May 2021 examination are therefore individually urged to take some time off from their routine while filling up the form and keep in mind the following critical columns in order to help us to serve you better.

DO NOT OPEN MORE THAN ONE SESSION AT THE SAME TIME ON THE SAME COMPUTER WHILE FILLING THE ONLINE FORM. i.e., do not fill more than one form at the same time on the same computer even if you are filling the two applications using different browsers or different tabs of the same browser.

Clear the temporary internet files and cookies before filling up each form.

Fill up the form at a suitable time and from a location where you have a good bandwidth available using browsers Internet Explorer versions (9.0 onwards), Mozilla Firefox(5.0 onwards), Google Chrome(41.0 onwards) or Safari(3.4 onwards).. Do NOT fill the form using mobile phones.

1. NAME: You should check that the name is appearing correctly at the time of registering for filling up the online form. In case the login has been created provisionally then take care to enter the name correctly as given in your registration letter issued by the Board of Studies. Suppose your name is VIJAY PRATAP SINGH RATHORE, you have to write exactly as given in the registration letter. Do not write RATHORE VIJAY P. SINGH or in any other manner.

2. MEDIUM: You must carefully select the medium as either ENGLISH or HINDI and ensure its correctness at the confirmation page before proceeding to make online payment. Else, English will be taken as the medium and no request for change will be entertained thereafter.

3. EXAMINATION CENTRE: You must pick up the correct centre of your choice and ensure its correctness at the confirmation page before proceeding to make online payment. Please be careful and be doubly sure. List of examination centers is available on the home page of http://icaiexam.icai.org “May 2021 > Exam Details>ExamCentres”.

4. GROUP APPLIED: You must mark the correct option relating to Group in which you intend to appear in the ensuing examination and ensure its correctness at the confirmation page before proceeding to make onlinepayment.

Please note that there is no provision for re-appearing in a group which has already been passed in the Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988. Appearing in the group/s which has already been passed earlier is violation of the Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988.

5. REGISTRATION NUMBER: While creating the login, please enter your new unique registration number exactly as you have been intimated by the Institute. e.g.:ERO0046241

NRO0090073
CRO0030123
WRO0016321
SRO0021634

Please note that the character after the alphabet ‘R’ in the above samples is the capital alphabet ‘O’ and not 0 (zero). Hence the first three character of the student registration number are alphabets and the remaining seven are numbers.

The candidates who have not been allotted the new unique Registration number may kindly contact the SSP helpdesk for the issuance of the same. In the meanwhile the students may register by creating a provisional registration and write their old Article Registration number in the box “Registration Number as per your record”.

6. EXEMPTIONS :

It is seen that many candidates, while entering the relevant details against the papers in which they secure exemption, enter the details against the papers which are not relevant for the group for which they are applying for i.e., if they are applying for group I, they enter details against the papers of group II, or vice-versa. Before applying, candidates can check their valid exemption at http://icaiexam.icai.org

If you are applying for only Group I, enter the exemption details in the papers of Group I in which you are holding a valid exemption, i.e, papers 1 to 4 and not those relating to Group II. Similarly, if you are applying for only Group II, enter the exemption details in the papers of Group II in which you are holding a valid exemption, i.e., paper 5 to 8. If you are applying for both the groups, you may enter the exemption details against the papers of both the groups, in which you are holding a valid exemption i.e., paper/s 1 to 8.

7. WHILE THE SYSTEM IS PROCESSING FEE PAYMENT, DO NOT PRESS THE REFRESH BUTTON OR THE BACK BUTTON AS THIS MAY CAUSE YOUR SESSION TO EXPIRE AND THE FEE AMOUNT GETS DEDUCTED WITHOUT GENERATION OF THE PDFFORM.

8. Candidates are advised in their own interest to retain the “Notes for Information and Guidance of Applicants” and a photocopy of the application form for reference till the admit card is received by them.
