‘Old course scheme will be closed forever after that’

The CA Institute has now extended the last attempt to appear in final and intermediate examination under old courses to November 2021. This relief has been given to remove the hardship caused to the students due to Covid-19 spread, sources close to the development said.

This will be applicable for all students of these old courses irrespective of whether they opted out of the May 2021 examination cycle or not, they added. This means that students who did not appear for the May 2021 exam cycle and those who did appear but would want to attempt it again in November 2021, would all be allowed to do so.
