FAQ’s on CA Final/ IPCC Admit Card

Q: I have a valid exemption but the admit card does not mention about my exemption. Will I get a exemption?

The ‘#’ symbol printed in your previous marksheet indicate that you’ve been granted an exemption in that paper which will be valid for the next 3 exams. The Result of that group is also shown as F-Ex (Failed with Exemption)

Alphabet “E” printed against the marks of a paper indicate that marks of that paper have been brought forward from an exemption granted in that paper in an earlier attempt.

If no such ‘#’ symbol is printed against the marks of that paper, even though the marks obtained in that paper may be more than 60, then that indicates that no exemption has been granted in that paper. Refer this link for more on availing Exemptions in CA Exams.
