Cut-off Date for Converting to Revised CA Scheme to Attempt in May 2018

Sub.: Cut-off date for students converting from earlier scheme to Revised Scheme of Education and Training implemented w.e.f 1st July 2017 into Foundation / Intermediate / Final Course for being eligible to appear in respective examinations in May 2018 

Students are advised to note that they need to convert themselves latest by 1st Feb., 2018 from earlier scheme to Revised Scheme of Education and Training implemented from 1st July 2017 to appear in Foundation / Intermediate / Final in May 2018 Examination.

The students who will be converting after 1st February, 2018 will not be eligible to fill the Exam form and appear for respective Examinations in May 2018 under Revised Scheme of Education and Training.

Announcement to Students registered in only one of the Groups of CA IPCC

Students who have registered in only one of the Groups of Intermediate (Integrated Professional Competence) / Intermediate (Professional Competence) Course under earlier scheme till 30th June 2017 and subsequently registered for remaining Group in New Scheme of Education and Training implemented wef 1st July 2017 have to compulsorily convert from the earlier registered Group in old scheme in New Scheme of Education and Training.

In other words, the students who are registering themselves for balance Group in Revised Scheme before filling the Examination Form, have to compulsorily convert themselves for the Group registered in earlier scheme, as a student cannot appear for Group I and Group II (both the Groups) in Old and New Scheme simultaneously.

Clarification on Compulsory Conversion to New Syllabus

As you might be aware, February 1st 2018, is the last date to convert to new CA Inter Scheme in order to be eligible for May 2018 attempt.

The words used in the ICAI Notification is very confusing, And as a result, it is seen that few students are in wrong notion that this conversion is mandatory.

Note that, converting from Old to New Syllabus is not mandatory. CA Final Old Syllabus students can continue appearing for exams under old scheme for Six more attempts i.e. Nov 2020

CA IPCC Old Syllabus students can continue appearing for exams under old scheme for three more attemptes i.e. May 2019

However, conversion for May 2018 is not recommended if you have not completed Advanced ITT till now.  Under new course, ACITSS has to be completed before exams, and therefore this might take up crucial preparation time.
