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.

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.
