Computer Based Exam for Foundation Programme: ICSI

The Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI), New Delhi, is set to introduce Computer Based (online) Examination for Foundation Programme from the academic year 2014-15.

The Institute has decided to discontinue OMR Based Examination and instead introduce Computer Based Examination (CBE) for its Foundation Programme students from June 2014 onwards.

However, examinees would continue to be assessed through Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs).

The following is the scheme of Computer Based Examination:

Day and Date Subjects  Total No of Questions and Marks  Type of Questions  Duration of examination

&
Fundamentals of Accounting and Auditing (FAA)  
50(100 marks)  MCQs having four options with one correct answer (No negative mark for wrong answer)  90 minutes in one sitting for both the subjects 

Candidates would be required to sit before a computer terminal and use computer-mouse while attempting the questions. Computer Based Examination would be held in all those cities in India and abroad, where the Institute's existing examinations are held. Details of examination centres/venues will be informed separately.

Questions would be displayed on the computer screen both in English as well as Hindi language except for Business Management, Ethics and Communication paper, for which questions shall be provided in English medium only.

The date of declaration of result of CBE would be published on the website of the Institute.

To familiarise students with Computer Based Examinations, Mock Test, FAQs, Examination Time Schedule, procedure to enroll for examination and Instructions to Examinees, etc. would shortly be hosted on the Institute's website.
