Candidates who have applied for May 2012 Chartered Accountants exams are requested to note that admit cards with photographs and signatures of the candidates will be hosted on http://www.icai.nic.in generally 21 days prior to the commencement of the examination. Candidates may print their admit cards from the website, which will be valid for admission to the examination.
For downloading/printing of the admit cards from the website, candidates will be required to enter the following:
Upon printing of admit cards, candidates are advised to verify the name, registration number, centre, medium, Group opted for accuracy.
In case of difficulty in printing of admit cards or any discrepancy in the data on the admit card so printed, candidates are advised to contact the Helpline of the Examination Department immediately, quoting their registration number, bar code number of their examination form and receipt number issued by the regional office(s), centre opted (with zone, if applicable), telephone number, fax number etc.
Errors if any, reported to the examination dept., in the data on the admit card, printed from the website, will be rectified and a letter by speed post/courier/email indicating the relevant change/correction etc will be sent to the respective candidates. However, such candidates may note that such corrections will not appear in the website.
It is seen that some candidates who submitted their exam forms on-line, did not send a print-out of their online exam forms, with their photographs and signatures duly affixed thereon. Admit cards of such candidates, hosted on the website, will not contain their photographs and signatures.
Such candidates are required to carry a photo identification i.e. voter’s card, driving licence, passport, identity card issued by College etc, failing which they will not be allowed entry into the examination centre. In case they do not have any of the abovementioned photo identity cards, they may get their photos attested by a Chartered Accountant or a Gazetted Officer and carry the same to the examination centre, as proof of their identity.
However, candidates may note that physical admit cards for May 2012 examination will also be sent to the candidates, by post. In case a candidate does not receive the physical admit card by post, for whatsoever reason, they can carry the admit card printed from website, which is also equally valid.
