Following the usual process, the ICAI will update the result date on a different day after the exam is completed.

So, you need to be patient as you wait for them to announce the date. Generally, it is within 3 months from the day of the exam; however, due to the existing global pandemic and its resultant effects on businesses, it might vary.

Aggregate to Clear the CA Foundation Test

It is a well-known fact that the minimum aggregate to clear the CA foundation exam is 50%, with a condition that the student should get at least 40% in all four papers.

It is important to remember that every wrong answer gets a deduction of 1/4th of the marks in the objective-type questions.

So, be well prepared for the exam.

Number of attempts

In case the stars were not aligned properly, and you happen to fail, don’t be discouraged.

You get 6 attempts over a span of three years to clear it.

Honestly speaking, most of IndigoLearn’s students crack it in the first attempt. We are sure you will be able to.
