Recent update on CA Articleship exam:

This Exam test is open to students who have already taken it and want to see if they can improve their score or grade. Students who enrolled for previous exams but were unable to present for any reason can also register for this one.

Students, Please note that this carefully:

  • Students who finished their second year of practical training between July and September of 2019 may only try this exam one more.
  • The Students who have completed the first year of training within this time frame are their last opportunity to sit for the Level 1 exam, and they must wait another year before reapplying for a Level 2 test date.
  • The Students who have qualified for both levels can choose which one they want to register for throughout the registration process.
  • After taking Level 2, however, students will be restricted from retaking Level 1 exams unless they enroll for the next level.

Students can appear for tests anywhere, even in their homes, using a Home-Based Test, as long as the environment is relaxed. A qualified proctor sits at a distant location and keeps an eye on the applicants' audio, video, and screen sharing feeds in real-time.

There are instructions and a frequently asked question (FAQ) for the home-based assessments from ICAI. Before taking the test, make sure you've done your homework.

Note: Keep Regular Check on Pttest.icai website for the most recent exam dates.

The Objective Of The CA Articleship Assessment Exam?

  • Students in CA foundation and intermediate have passed an exam to see how well they understand the concepts taught in class. The ICAI now wants to check students' practical skills.
  • To get high Chartered Accountants and reduce the number of dummy articles, there is a CA Articleship test. Students are free to opt-out of taking this test.

Eligibility Requirements For ICAI CA Articleship Exam:

  • Students must have completed the practical training assessment exam at least the first and second years of classroom instruction to take the practical training exam.
  • For example, a student who completes their first/second year of practical training between April and June of 2018 will be required to take the relevant examination until March of the following year[2019].
  • While passing the CA Final examination before this one, they will be eligible to appear for this one only until the results are announced since their final grade will be included in their mark sheet for that exam as well.
  • Before April 1, 2018, for students who finished their first year of practical training, a first-level test is not mandatory for them to take. After the second year of practical training, they must, nevertheless, appear for the second-level examinations.

The dates for the ICAI practical training assessment test are changed every three months. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India announces new dates following previous results on this website.

Students are advised to note that: 

  • Fill out the test form as soon as the online application form is available and as soon as feasible after that.     
  • As a result, you'll have to select two cities from your list of choices to sit for the test.     
  • A "first-come, first-served" decision will be made if there are many candidates. Priority will be given to those who fill out the form first.       
  • Reading the ICAI sample tests is an essential second suggestion.       
  • On the Articleship test, I discovered that 20 of the questions were exactly the same as 75 that I had to answer in the first year of my Articleship experience.

Second advice: 

How to attempt MCQ questions?

  • Continue to read the question until you reach the end. Don't worry about time.     
  • Select just the questions that you have a complete answer for.    
  • Before filling in the circle, think about the question you were asked before looking at the response.       
  • Find the correct answer by removing all the incorrect ones.     
  • If, after all, other possibilities have been ruled out, you're sure that answer is accurate, go ahead and select it. Then go ahead and do it.
