Clarification on difficulties faced by candidates in on-line submission of application forms for appearing in CA exams to be held in November 2019

It has been brought to our notice that some candidates are experiencing difficulty in submission of exam forms on-line for appearing in CA exams to be held in November 2019.

In this connection, candidates are advised to go through the answer relating to Question No. 13 of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) hosted on

For the guidance of the candidates, it is reproduced herein-below:

Identity of a student of ICAI is validated through a) the ten digit registration number ( like NRO0123456 b) name of the course and c) date of birth that the candidate had entered while creating the User ID.

If these fields do not match with those in the Institute’s database, the system would not provide the candidate the User ID and password against the student registration number entered by him. Instead the system will allot a login against a system generated Pxxxxxxxx number for submitting the on-line exam form.

Hence, candidates are advised to ensure that they fill their student registration number as per the registration letter sent to them. Candidates are advised to keep a copy of the letter of registration issued to them by the Board of Studies, ICAI, ready on hand so that they can fill their respective registration number correctly.

Candidates are also advised to ensure that they fill in their date of birth, as per the documents submitted by them to the Institute at the time of registration.

In case the details do not match with ICAI records, system will still issue the User ID and password, based on which the candidate will be permitted to submit a provisional application, subject to verification of documentary evidence.

Those whose registration is under process and have not been allotted the registration number OR those who are still using the old registration numbers such as BB0123456,DD0123456,etc., may select OTHERS in the “Select Prefix”. The submission will again be provisional in such cases. Please refer to guidance notes hosted at and ensure that you are eligible to apply for the exam/course for which you are intending to apply for the exam.

Such provisional submissions will be regularised upon confirmation of the details from the central data base and/or by reference to the candidates.

Candidates are hereby advised to take note of the above and act accordingly.
