ICAI decided to make available scanned copies of evaluated answer books to examinees who apply for the same, through a website , in soft form, as against the current practice of dispatching physical photocopies. Physical copies of the answer books shall not be dispatched to the applicants, henceforth.
This new initiative will commence from the Intermediate (IPC) and Final examination held in November 2013.
Answer books sought by an applicant ( both through online as well as physical applications) will be scanned and the scanned images will be hosted on a website and the applicant will be sent an email, at the email address provided by him, in his request, informing him the URL link of the website where they are hosted and the user ID and password required for accessing the same.
Applicants can enter the site where the answer books are hosted only through the URL in the email sent to them.
They can view and take print out of the scanned copies of the answer books sought by them, at their convenience, but not later than 10 days from the date of hosting.
Students can continue to check the status of their applications at http://icaiexam.icai.org
as usual. ( Candidates may please note that scanned copies of answer books will not be hosted onhttp://icaiexam.icai.org
