ICAI scraps common proficiency test

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has reverted to its former entry requirements for its Chartered Accounting (CA) course, enabling prospective students to apply without having to sit a common proficiency test.

The new system will enable graduates and post-graduates to directly register for the Integrated Professional Competence Course (IPCC).

ICAI Southern India Regional Council chairman K Jalapathi, chairman said readopting the former programme is a “great opportunity” for graduates and post-graduates hoping to pursue the CA programme.

The common proficiency test was compulsory before 31 July. Students can now complete the course in three and half years, training under a practicing chartered accountant, subject to passing all the exams and training programmes in the first attempt.

Candidates will be eligible to appear for the IPCC exam after completion of nine months of training.
