THE INSTITUTE OF CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS (GHANA)
UPDATE ON CA EXAMINATIONS 2016
The Council of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Ghana wishes to congratulate all candidates who have written the Institute’s examinations under the revised syllabus. Undoubtedly, the revised structure and content, coupled with the study manuals have helped to improve the pass rate.
The following policy amendment has been made to facilitate student’s progression:
A) WRITING ACROSS ALL LEVELS
Candidates can now write papers across levels under the following guidelines:
1) That, Level 1 candidate with only one paper left can add a maximum of 4 papers in level 2
2) That, Level 2 candidate who has only one paper to complete the level (if so desire) can write it together with all level 3 Papers.
3) That, no candidate can write a level 3 paper if he/she has not written and passed all level 1 papers.
4) That, no candidate can write a level 3 paper if he/she has more than one paper to write in level 2.
5) IMPLEMENTATION DATE IS MAY 2016 DIET.
B) TRANSITIONAL ARRANGEMENT UNDER THE REVISED SYLLABUS
i) The existing credit policy for level 3 (final level) remains unchanged. A first time level 3 candidate writes all the four papers. A candidate has to pass a minimum of two subjects before he/she gets credit for the passed papers. If you pass only one paper, you will have to write all the four papers again.
ii) Students who completed part 3 of the old syllabus before the advent of the new syllabus were given the opportunity to write the Corporate Strategy, Ethics and Governance with Corporate Reporting, Advanced Audit and Assurance and Taxation and Fiscal Policy in May 2015. This arrangement will continue up to the November 2016 examination. Any candidate who is unable to graduate after the November 2016 exams would be required to write Advanced Financial Management in addition to the remaining level 3 papers.
THE ABOVE POLICIES TAKE EFFECT FROM MAY 2016 DIET.
