With only a few days remaining for the exams, students of Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAI) are stressed, and all they want is for the institute to postpone the November 2020 exams. Twitter is flooded with #ICAIExamPostponement tweets, memes and jokes, as students are heavily trending the viral hashtag, once again, urging ICAI to cancel the examinations and reschedule it, only after COVID-19 situation improves. Candidates still alleged unresolved issues regarding the upcoming exams. Even though, it is a festival day, today, November 14, the internet is filled with pleas of candidates urging postponement of the exams as they are worried about their health.
CA students have been reporting issues ever since the ICAI admit cards were released for the upcoming exams. Many candidates have alleged that they have been allotted exam centres in a different state, bakery shops, and containment zones and so on. While the institute denies any exam centre allotted in containment zone, it claims to have ‘already changed more than 20 examination centres.’ But students reported that there had been unresolved issues regarding the upcoming exam.
While the country is celebrating the Festival of Lights, Diwali 2020, today, students seem to be in stress. Some of them are in uncertainty if the CA exams would be conducted in November, at all. #ICAIExamPostponement, #ICAIExams are currently trending on Twitter, accompanied by memes, tweets and more with students urging the institute to cancel November, 2020 exams.
