  1. Sir,

    Thank you for the informative post. I had a query regarding the time period after which one can write the final exams, for PCC to IPCC converted students. ICAI had issued a clarification in 2010, stating that such students can appear for the final exam 6 months prior to the completion of articles, meaning after completion of 3 years. Does this still hold now?

    1. Yes its still in rule but if you were a PCC student and had finished articleship then you can appear for Final in next attempt even.

  2. I have completed my Articleship during 1999-2002 and appeared for the intermediate exams.After this break up of 11 years can i appear for the exams now..pls advice

    1. Yes, you can. You will have to register for CA Intermediate in order to appear in any exam of upcoming CA Inter.

      1. Sir,

        I have converted from PCC to IPC course.But i was given no document by the Institute except a study material collection slip. This means that I have no proof to show that i have submitted the form for conversion.
        If i have to submit exam form with Provisional registration i have no registration letter to sumbit with the form.
        I hope i could make my query clear sir.
