The revised time table is also available on the official website of icsi.edu. Earlier there was news that NSUI had demanded the CA CS Exam 2020 to be cancelled due to pandemic outbreak.
ICSI has, however, warned miscreants from spreading cancellation news on social media and had informed to take strict action against such people. The candidates are demotivated by such misinformation as per the institute. There has been no update on the further postponement of CA exams as of now. The exams will be conducted in July as earlier stated by ICAI.
Student Body demands cancellation of exams:
The student body, National Students’ Union of India, NSUI has demanded the cancellation of ICAI CA and ICSI CS exams 2020 scheduled from July-end to mid-August. This demand has been made by the student body as the pandemic outbreak has caused the death toll to increase across the country. In this regard, the CS Exam would be conducted from August 18 to 28, 2020 now.
The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, ICAI, and Institute of Company Secretaries of India, ICSI, had released their schedules for the CA and CS examinations to be conducted now in July and August expecting the situation of health and sanitization to improve.
However ow that the number of cases is still following an increasing graph, many students of ICAI and ICSI have raised the issue on social media. They have also demanded the examination bodies to postpone or cancel the exams.
ICSI had issued an advisory regarding the same asking students not to post any such details or issues on social media. It would lead to demotivation in students who actually wish to appear for the exams as per the body.
NSUI, National Secretary Lokesh Chugh said as informed by a leading daily, “It is a totally insensitive and inhumane decision for CA and CS students as they are not in a position to prepare for the examinations right now.”
“The NSUI demands the ICAI and ICSI to not conduct its examination which is scheduled on 29th July 2020 and 6th July 2020 respectively and understand the plight of students as these examinations will affect their future”, the statement added.
The students also face the issue of lack of resources to appear for the exams as many of them had travelled back to their home towns following the outbreak, thus do not possess any books or study material too.
Hope you got complete idea about the CA CS Exam 2020
