CA Foundation Paper rechecking

Re-evaluation of evaluated answer books is not permitted as per CA Regulations 1988. This means that once an answer sheet is checked and marks are awarded to the ca foundation student, ICAI will not recheck the paper. This seems very unfair and a lot of ca students protested against this rule. However, instead of re-checking ICAI has provided students with 2 options -

Option 1: CA Foundation paper verification

Verification of answer sheet: CA Foundation students can go for verification of their answer sheets. Verification means
Checking:

  • Whether the answer book(s) compilation is complete
  • Whether any question or part thereof has remained unvalued
  • Whether there is any totaling error in any question or total marks on the cover page
  • Whether there is any discrepancy between the marks for each question and or/part thereof and marks for each question indicated on the cover page of the answer book
  • Whether the handwriting of the candidate in all the answer books is the same.

So if you feel after looking at your ca result that there might be an error where some question you answered would not be evaluated, there would be some totaling error then you may go for this option

The procedure for verification is to apply online on ICAI Verification Procedure within a month from the date of declaration of results and also pay the applicable fee. It takes about 6-8 weeks for the verification process to complete and at the end there can be 4 outcomes

  • No change of marks
  • Increase of marks, impacting result or exemption in one or more paper(s)
  • Increase of marks, which does not have an impact on result or exemption in one or more paper(s)
  • Decrease of marks

Option 2: CA Foundation Certified copies

Certified copies means that you will be provided with your checked answer book. Certified copies of evaluated answer book can be obtained by ca students.

However at CA Foundation level certified copies of paper 3 and paper 4 (these are the OMR based papers) only your OMR sheet would be provided and not the question paper.

When you apply for certified copies verification of answer books, is also carried out by the office, suo motu, in respect of all applications for certified copy of evaluated answer book and in case of any discrepancy leading to increase in total marks, a revised statement of marks is also sent to you.

FAQ:
I applied for certified copies of my evaluated answer books and received them. I am not satisfied with the evaluation of my answers and the marks awarded. I want to apply for re-evaluation of my answer book. Can I do so?

Answer: No as re-checking is not permitted by ICAI.

FAQ:
I applied for certified copies of my evaluated answer books and received them. I notice that some part of the answers are not evaluated by the examiner or there is a totaling error or marks awarded have not been carried forward to the cover page or such other matters that fall within the scope of verification covered under Regulation 39(4). What should I do now?

Answer: You can write to the office about the same, within 30 days from the date of the letter.

The procedure for certified copies is to apply online on Certified Copies within a month from the date of declaration of results and also pay the applicable fee
