Foundation course for CA which is replacing current entry-level test i.e. CPT (Common Proficiency Test) has implemented from 1st July 2017. The result of CPT generally releases within one month from the examination date. However, the result of Intermediate and Final level release within two months from the examination date. As we know that ICAI has introduced change in the exam pattern as well as in the paper pattern. CPT (common proficiency test) is a completely objective type test, but CA Foundation will be partially subjective and partially objective. The exam of CA Foundation will conduct twice in a year i.e. May and November similarly like other levels i.e. Intermediate and Final rather than June and December in which exams of CPT are conducting.
As, ICAI is trying to conduct the CA Foundation much similar to its other level. Seeing this, it is probable that result of CA Foundation will also release within 2 months from the completion of exams similar to its other levels. So, if its exam conducts in May 2018 then it is expected that the CA Foundation result will release by ICAI in the mid of July. As soon as it is made clear by ICAI when the result will be released, we will quickly let you know about this.
The result for CA Foundation will mention that student is qualified to move to the next level or still required to pass the entry test. CA Foundation will conduct at 400 marks and students are required to get 40% in individual subjects and 50% in aggregate.
