I wrote my CA Intermediate | CA IPCC 3 times but not yet cleared any group i would like convert to direct entry scheme and start my articles... and my attempt will be in may2016 is new syllabus or old for me....
yes u can convert to direct entry scheme and go for attempting CA Intermediate | CA IPCC both groups. U need to complete 9months of articleship training and also ITT and OTT before giving ur attempt. since u have already attempted thrice for CA Intermediate | CA IPCC so u would have definitely completed ur ITT and OTT. All u need is to complete 9 months of articleship and then ur attempt would be may 2016. U will be giving ur examination under old syllabus only in May 2016. because so far registration under new curriculam has not yet been started and that only is beneficial to u as u have appeared examination under old syllabus. Further U May get a yr or so to complete CA Intermediate | CA IPCC under old syllabus only. but as far as ur attempt for CA Final is considered U will be required to give it under new scheme only and that only would be beneficial for u to be a fresh and updated CA. so ALL THE BEST for ur preparations. Just convert to Direct ENTRY Scheme and Move on. Also attach ur graduation marksheet copy with the form under direct entry scheme. However it is not mentioned in the said form but it is required then only they wil admit ur conversion to Direct Entry Scheme.
**switch over to direct entry scheme** :-You can switch over to direct entry scheme provided you have completed your graduation with more than 50%/60% marks , upon conversion your articleship will start on completion of the 100 hours ITT Course and 5 day orientation course & you will be eligible for CA Intermediate | CA IPCC Exam after completion of 9 months of articleship. Since you have not cleared any group of CA Intermediate | CA IPCC you would be required to clear both the groups of CA Intermediate | CA IPCC after conversion into the Direct Entry Scheme **Applicability of New syllabus in May 2016 :** Though ICAI has released changes in syllabus it is still not clear from which attempt it will be applicable so just wait for the notification from the institute . ICAI has just set the target for making new syllabus applicable from may 2016 attempt it is still not confirmed . Institute will surely provide relief to students who are presently under the current scheme to complete the course under the current scheme only , they will give sufficient number of attempts to complete the CA exams in old scheme .So there is nothing for you to bother about whether new syllabus 2016 is applicable to you or not. As you know it is a long process and this process takes time, for instance approval of government for its implementation , So you just focus on your current scheme.
Hello, For opting Direct Entry Scheme you need to fulfill the condition of the Scheme to become eligible. First of all you need to secure minimum 55 % in your TY exam. You need to undergo the Orientation and IT Training then only you can select Direct Entry Scheme and 9 months of articleship. Since you wish to move to Direct Entry Scheme you need to transfer your registration to Direct Entry Scheme and then you can undergo articleship but fulfill the condition. New Syllabus will be applicable for your exam of May 2016 as the institute has already notified the change in the Syllabus. Keep yourself in touch with the latest updates of institute because it has recently revised his proposed notification about the new syllabus.
