On-line facility for checking exemption(s) granted in a paper(s) valid for May, 2018 examination will be available at icaiexam.icai.org It is seen that some of the candidates carry a mistaken notion that they enjoy an exemption in a paper(s) whereas in reality they do not and end up absenting themselves in the said paper, resulting in avoidable hardships. To avoid this kind of situation, an on-line facility for checking exemptions granted in a paper (s) valid for May, 2018 examinations, has been put in place at icaiexam.icai.org and will be available from 16th April, 2018. Candidates are advised to take note of the above provisions carefully and take advantage of the on-line facility being made available, appropriately. Candidates are advised to check the details of exemptions from their dashboard under their SingleSignOn more particularly, the month and year of exam and roll number indicated on the said site, with those contained in the relevant Statement of marks issued to them. Exemptions granted in a paper(s) are indicated by way of "#" against the marks awarded thereon and the Result of the relevant Group is indicated as "F-EX", in the Statement of Marks. In case of discrepancy, if any, candidates are advised to write to the Examination Dept. on or before 26th April, 2018, enclosing scanned copy of the relevant mark sheet in which exemption was granted.
Surrender of Exemption
It has also been decided to allow the candidates to give option for surrendering the valid exemption already secured, in toto, in a paper or papers on the basis of 60 per cent marks, on the conditions that (i) exemption surrendered once shall be effective for all times to come for all the chances (i.e. up to a maximum of three immediate next examinations or all remaining chance/s) and under no circumstances the candidates shall be allowed to claim the surrendered exemption in future; and (ii) on furnishing an affidavit to this effect and in the prescribed proforma (which can be obtained from the Institute on request) on a non-judicial stamp paper of the value as applicable in the respective State, candidates can exercise the option to surrender the exemption at any time during the currency of the validity of exemption but before the date prescribed for doing so i.e. 01st March, 2018 in case of May, 2018 examinations.
A candidate who wants to surrender the valid exemption, in toto, secured in a paper or papers on the basis of 60 per cent marks in any of the immediate last three examinations (i.e. November, 2016, May 2017 and November 2017) is advised in his own interest to write separately to the Joint Secretary (Exams.) informing him of his decision to surrender the exemption, in toto, along with a photocopy of the relevant Statement of Marks to enable the office to send further details in this regard and the proforma of the affidavit to be executed by the candidate. Candidates should note carefully that the surrender of exemption shall become effective only after furnishing the requisite affidavit and on issue of confirmation letter to this effect by the Institute.
