CA Exams 2020: November dates are also not final
The Coronavirus pandemic has thrown the entire examination schedule for CA Exams 2020 into a disarray. Earlier, the exams were scheduled for the month of May 2020 but had to be postponed to July/August 2020 as the pandemic had rendered the conditions for conducting the CA Exams 2020 unsafe. But as the pandemic does not show any signs of slowing down, ICAI was left with no other option but to cancel the exams. The same has been confirmed with the latest notification from ICAI which states that the institute is cancelling the exams, considering the safety of the students. The institute also specified that it places the safety of the students as its top-most priority.
But experts have expressed their apprehensions regarding the November dates as well. The situation has to become normal by the time, so that the exams can be conducted safely and without any risk to anyone. But as the pace of the pandemic shows no signs of slowing down, it would not be a surprise if the November exams are also rescheduled.
