ICAI president has announced that there may be arrangement of open book exam on trial basis? will it improve the CA pass percent.
Hi Swetha, Pass percentage of ca exams depends on the toughness of the exam so it could not be related to Open book exam.But Open book exam will be very helpful for the students as it does not keep pressure to memorize all the contents for the exam.So i think this will be helpful to pass out easily as only conceptual knowledge is enough. I think its better.
Hello, The Open Book Exam is one of the proposed scheme which is going to be introduced in the CA exam. Open Book Exam nothing has to do with the passing percentage of the CA students.It is all depend upon how student perform in the exam and marks are giving on that basis. It also to some extent depend upon the demand in the market of the students as the institute does not want its reputation to be threaten. Introducing Open Book Exam it seem to be easy but it will be not so because then Institute can ask question from any part of the module. So do not think that passing percentage will increase because of Open Book Exam.
Hi Swetha Pass percentage of CA's depends on the demand by the industry so it is not proportionate to the exam format in anyway. The motive of ICAI to bring in the open book exams is very simple; ICAI wants to examine the understanding power of the students rather than their learning power so the open books exams will help this cause. To an extent this is correct too because later on in the profession no one during an assignment is required to recall the things they have learnt it is their understanding of the subject and the laws which is useful. If this happens students will be more positive about the exams and the results and new aspirants will also join in.
