ICAI has been working on a cost effective scalable model, for quite some time, for conducting an on-line/computer based Common Proficiency Test (CPT), to cater to a large number of candidates on a nation wide level.
It has now been decided to test the technical feasibility/efficacy of the computer based CPT model that has been developed.
Accordingly, it has been decided to conduct a computer based Mock CPT on Saturday 26th November 2011 for the candidates who have applied for appearing in the Paper Pencil CPT to be held on 18th December 2011.
This test is meant to be a practice test for the academic guidance of the candidates. It is not mandatory to take this test. It is purely optional. It is not held under Regulation 25D of the Chartered Accountants Regulations 1988 and the result of this Mock Test shall not have any bearing/impact whatsoever on the CPT paper pencil mode exam scheduled to be held on 18th December 2011 or for admission to Integrated Professional Competence Course. In other words, the mock CPT is just to assess the technical feasibility of the software developed for computer based examination.
Mock CPT will be held at 38 locations in 28 cities across India, as given below.
Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Bangalore, Baroda, Bhopal, Bhubaneshwar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hissar, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kanpur, Kochi, Kokata, Lucknow, Madurai, Mumbai, Nagpur, Nashik, New Delhi/NCR(Gurgaon and Noida), Panjim, Patna, Pune, Ranchi, Surat, Thiruvantapuram and Vijayawada.
ICAI reserves the right to withdraw any centre at any stage without assigning any reason.
Application for the computer based Mock CPT can be made on-line only from http://cptonlineexam.icai.org.There is no provision for submission of physical forms. Fee of Rs 300/- is payable on-line by using debit/credit master/visa card.
