The Supreme Court (SC) on June 30 said students who have suffered from COVID-19 or have family members suffering from the virus should be given an opt-out option for the CA Exam 2021 on July 5 by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI).

These students under the old and new course will be allowed to give the exam in the next slot in November 2021.

The apex court said in its order that if this is certified by a medical practitioner, he/she need not submit an RT-PCR report. Further, it said if the examination centre is changed at the last minute, the candidate should be allowed to opt-out.

During the hearing, senior advocate Ramji Srinivasan appearing for ICAI said that students suffering from the virus and residing in containment zones will be allowed to opt-out of the exam.
