The ICAI has clarified that, for the Practical Training Assessment exam, the first/second-year completion date will be one year/two years following the date of practical training beginning, irrespective of excess leaves.

If a student began practical training on July 1, 2017, and took leaves from January 1, 2018, to February 1, 2018, his or her first-year completion date for the assessment test would still be June 30, 2018, and his or her second-year completion date would be June 30, 2019, despite the excess leaves taken by the student.

Students who qualify for both levels can choose their level while filling out the registration form. If a student registers for Level 2, he or she will not be permitted to register for Level 1 in future examinations.

 

Frequently Asked Questions for PT test ICAL

Is it possible for you to re-register for the PT test ICAL?

Students who have taken the CA practical training exam before (one or two times) and want to enhance their performance/grade can retake the exam. The best of the grades will be considered for review and inclusion in the mark sheet in this scenario.

Similarly, students who had previously registered for a test but were unable to attend the test. Can register again by paying fees of Rs. 200.  

During the above-mentioned time, students can register for the exam using the registration page, selecting their preferred test dates and locations. Students who desire to reappear must register online and pay a cost of Rs.200. Selecting a test site does not mean that it will be confirmed.

So, how do you go to the venue of your choice? When you register as soon as possible when registration opens, your chances of receiving a preferred site rise. If you register later or at the end, you will be assigned the second preference's location. The author was involved in the same incident twice.

Depending on the number of candidates in that region for that exam day, a student may be allocated to any of the two venues. However, the place chosen as the first preference will be given priority.

 

What happens if you're unable to register for the PT teat ICAL?

You believe you meet the eligibility requirements but are unable to register for the exam. Don't worry, email ICAI at ptassessment@icai.in if you have any eligibility-related questions.

All emails will be responded to, and students who are eligible to take the aforementioned test will be able to register even if the registration deadline has passed.

When I originally took the test, I felt I met the eligibility requirements, but I was unable to register. So I wrote to the ICAI, who responded to my question and allowed me to register. Please include your registration number and date of birth in your correspondence.

 

Who is the proctor for the ICAI computer-based test?

A certified proctor sits at a distant location and monitors the applicants' audio-video and screen sharing feeds in real-time. Students are expected to read the Online Test Guidelines and FAQs for further information.

 

When is the Mock Test of ICAI to be conducted?

On April 23, 2021, a mock test will be held. All applicants will get an email with their Mock Test schedule, which will also be available on this portal after logging in. 6. Admit Card Issuance
