This collaboration will be applied for various exams such as professional, executive, foundation, and post membership qualification courses. For executive and professional exams, it includes both the old and new syllabus.
Amid the rapid increase in the COVID-19 cases across the nation, ICSI said in an official notice that it ensures the safety of all. The notice also reads that the health and well-being of the stakeholders at ICSI has been the most important thing than anything else. Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing measures, and lockdown constraints, ICSI has decided to combine the June and December 2020 exams.
After merging both the exams, the June session ICSI exam will begin on 21st December 2020. As of now, the officials haven’t released the precise datesheet for the exams.
