An examinee of CA exams can apply for verification of his/her answer books, either physically in his/her own handwriting, or on-line fromhttp://icaiexam.icai.orgwithin a month from the date of declaration of results.
The process of verification of marks covers the following:
Whether the answer book(s) compilation is complete
Whether any question or part thereof has remained unvalued
Whether there is any totaling error in any question or total marks on the cover page
Whether there is any discrepancy between the marks for each question and or/part thereof and marks for each question indicated on the cover page of the answer book
Whether the handwriting of the examinee in all the answer books is the same.
The application for verification of marks must be in the handwriting of the examinee. If the examinee had appeared in Hindi medium, his/her application should be in Hindi. Typewritten applications will not be entertained.
There is no standard format as such for such application. However, the application should clearly indicate the following details and should be duly signed by the examinee.
Student Registration No
Month and year of the exam
Paper(s)/subjects to be verified
Address for communication
Examinees are advised to note that there is no provision for re-evaluation of answer books.
Verification fee is as follows:
For Final, PCE, IPCE/ATE, IPCE/ATE-units: Rs 100/- per paper subject to a maximum of Rs 400/- for all the papers of a group/both groups.
For CPT: Rs 200/-
For Post qualification courses ISA, DIRM, ITL&WTO, MAC/TMC/CMC: Rs 500/-
The fees is payable by way of a demand draft drawn in favour of The Secretary, The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India payable at New Delhi. In case an examinee is applying online, he/she can pay the verification fee on-line, either by debit/credit card, Master/Visa. The verification fees is the same, whether the application is physical or on-line.
In the case of on-line applications, a scanned copy of the handwritten request for verification is also to be uploaded. However, there is no need to send the print-out of the on-line verification application by post.
An application by an examinee seeking inspection of his/her evaluated answer books and/or certified copies thereof is independent of and distinct from an application made by him/her for verification of marks under the existing Regulation 39(4) of the Chartered Accountants Regulations, 1988.
For details regarding the procedure for applying for certified copies/inspection of evaluated answer books,click here.
An application for inspection/certified copies is not treated as a verification application.
An examinee can apply for both verification as well as inspection/copies of his/her evaluated answer books by following the prescribed procedure. Such examinees are advised not to send both the applications together in the same envelope. They should be sent in separate envelopes, by speed post/registered post only, superscribing the name of the exam, i.e Final or PCE or IPCE as the case may be, on the envelope. Applications should not be sent by courier/ordinary post.
The verification process is meticulously drawn up exercise and it therefore takes time which may run to about 6-8 weeks from the date of receipt of the application.
Though it will be our endeavour to inform the outcome of verification in respect of May 2012 exams, as sought by the examinees latest by 15th October 2012, yet the same cannot be assured, due to time consuming processes involved. However, all such examinees who do not receive the response latest by 15th October 2012 are advised to send an email, at the E-Mail IDs mentioned below, as per the exam.
Examinees are advised to submit their examination form for the forthcoming examination, if they so wish, pending receipt of the outcome of verification of answer books of the May 2012 exams.
