Note -

As we know that w.e.f 1st July 2017, ICAI has replaced CPT with CA Foundation as an entry-level exam in the Chartered Accountancy course which means that candidates can pursue Chartered Accountancy course only after clearing CA Foundation Examination. Hence, ICAI has decided not to conduct CA CPT exam after June 2019 session.  Till such period, ICAI will conduct parallel attempts for CA CPT and CA Foundation. Those candidates who could not pass the CA CPT exam until June 2019 have to mandatorily convert them for CA Foundation in order to pursue Chartered Accountancy.
