CMA FOUNDATION RESCHEDULED TIME TABLE
Earlier postponed to September, CMA June 2020 exams cancelled because of Covid-19
In a notification released in May 2020, the ICMAI had earlier postponed the June 2020 exams to be held from 1st to 10th September, 2020. However, in the new notification, the ICMAI has said that the institute has “decided to cancel the rescheduled Inter and Final examination of June, 2020…due to the Novel Corona Virus (Covid-19) to ensure the interest of all the stakeholders, especially the students/candidates and merge the June, 2020 exams with December, 2020 examination with due carryover of all relevant benefits…”
Student benefits will be carried over
The ICMAI said in the notification that all the relevant student benefits that were applicable in June, 2020 exams will remain valid in December, 2020 attempt as well. These benefits are:
- Examination form already submitted by the candidates/students for the Intermediate and Final June, 2020 session will remain same for the Intermediate and Final examinations to be held in December, 2020. Candidates need not apply again.
- Fees already paid for June, 2020 exams will be carried over to December.
- Subject-wise exemptions applicable in the June, 2020 exams will remain valid in the December, 2020 exams as well.
- Candidates/students who have submitted examination form for the Intermediate and Final June, 2020 exams are allowed to add their group with the payment of differential exam fee.
- The candidates/students who have not applied for the Inter and Final June, 2020 exams can apply afresh for the December, 2020 exams by submitting the online application form.
December 2020 schedule to be announced later
The institute has said that the schedule and timetable for both – the Inter and Final exams of December, 2020 schedule as well as the June, 2020 Inter and Final exams that have been merged – will be announced separately on the institute website on a later date. We’ll update the notification on our blog here on SuperProfs as soon as it is released so make sure you subscribe to our blog notifications.
What this means for you
Exams being cancelled is not necessarily a bad thing. We understand that this might be a stressful time for you but the reality of the situation can’t be denied. We advise all our students to make the best use of this additional time and use it to prepare the entire syllabus. In case you had a weak subject, now is the right time to make it your strength. This will ensure that you will pass the December, 2020 exams in one attempt.
Even better, you can prepare an entire additional group and clear it with ease in one attempt too. In case you were going to write exams of just one group in June, we advise you to apply for the other group as well because thanks to the lockdown, you have ample time and opportunity to study for both groups.
