Skill Assessment for CA-Foundation 2019:  

CA-Foundations is different that CA-CPT in ways more than one. Not only has the syllabus changed the pattern for analysis has also changed. Students will be examined on two parameters: Their theoretical understanding of the concept and the applications. In some papers like Accounts and Mathematics, more emphasis is given to applications. For subjects like Business Law, it is the theory that matters more. For Economics, almost equal weightage is given to both theoretical and application-based skills.
