ICAI Exam Guidelines Nov 2017

ICAI has released new examination Guidelines starting with November 2017 exams.

  1. BLACK INK pen
  •  Students can now use only BLACK INK pen for writing the exams. You are allowed to use Black Gel pen too.
  • Until last attempt, there is restriction to not use green or red color ink pen.
  • The reason for allowing only black ink pen is that, ICAI has to scan all the answer sheets to provide them as Certified Copies to students who paid fee. So, Scanning answer sheets with blue color ink is taking large amount of data. Therefore, this rule has been brought.

2. staplers

  • Students have to carry their own staplers to the exam center, to pin additional answer sheets. Stapler will not be provided by the ICAI at exam centers.

Note :- All the above guidelines are mentioned on Admit Card. Students can verify the same from it.
