It looks like that after the increase in performances of
students in the final chartered accountancy (CA) exam in the last three chances,
dipped in the November 2015 exam.
The success rate of candidates in May was 8.25% which is now
5.75% i.e. dropping by 2.45%. The results of the final CA exam were announced
on Sunday by Institute of Chartered Accountancy of India (ICAI). Only 2440
students cleared out of 42,469 students who appeared in both the groups together
in November 2015.
The final exam of CA is conducted two times in a year and
last time a poor rate was recorded in November 2013 when only 3.1% candidates
passed the exam.
It was observed that
the number of candidates have increased by 50% in the last six exams (those who
appear for it). For example- In May 2013, 27, 556 candidates appeared for the
exam growing to 42,500 this time.
The toppers are- James Britto from Chennai bagged the first
rank with 74.38% in the November exam, N Mohan Kumar (71.5%) from Tirupati
scored second rank and Avinash Sancheti (70.75%) from Kolkata came third.
It was Britto's first attempt at the exams similar to
Sancheti who is 22 years old. Sancheti wants to opt for teaching career along
with his consultancy work.
