Again Changed – CA IPCC & Final Examination Timings May 2018 Changed to 2 PM to 5 PM from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM


On Jan 9, 2018, ICAI had notified us that exam timing for the May 2018 exam would be 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM. But today, ICAI has again issued a notification and old timings of 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM are kept for exams for May 2018.

REASON: The reason for this change is not officially declared but we think that some students might have complained about the morning schedule, as many students do up-down from their home to far situated exam hall. The early exam is never a choice for them. Because in the way anything can happen, the vehicle may be stuck and they may lose the exam. So, it’s better to keep at the 2 to 5.
