For students who join Articleship after clearing the 1st group only, ICAI has not prescribed any last date for submission of the CA Final Registration Form. However, such students should ensure that they are registered with ICAI before submission of the CA Final Exam Form.
A CA Student can appear for CA Final Exams in the last 6 months of his articleship. In other words, as the duration of articleship is 3 years, a student can appear for CA Final Exams after completing a minimum of 2.5 years of articleship. The student can appear for any attempt that falls after completing 2.5 years of articleship.
