Students are stakeholders of the Institute and the stakeholders are requesting you to consider their health before exams. @atulguptagst @theicai @RajeshSharmaBJP @HRDMinistry @raghav_chadha
ICSI issues official advisory to students
ICAI has not officially responded to the students’ plea on the issue and there has not been any notification in this regard from the authorities. On the other hand, ICSI has issued an advisory to students to refrain from posting on social media demanding cancellation of exams citing that it is demotivating for the sincere students. The advisory also says that "Posting and circulating these kind of messages and videos amounts to professional misconduct and the members and students doing so are subject to disciplinary action."
CS July 2020 exams are scheduled to be held from July 6, 2020 and CA July 2020 session is scheduled to start from July 29.
