ICAI Final Exam Fee Payable for May 2022
ICAI decides the fee for all the categories that have to be paid while filling out the form and the registration form. Students must be aware that the registration fee for CA Final Exam does not include the Examination Form fee. So, the students must pay both the fee separately while filling out the respective form. The registration fee for CA Final Exam is INR 22,000 for the Indian students. For the international students, the registration fee will be USD 1100. Similarly, the exam fee for CA Final Exam varies for the students of the different categories. Let us see the fee paid by the students belonging to India and foreign.
CA Final Exam Fee for Indian Centre
The CA Foundation Fee for Indian Centre students is INR 1800 for one group. But if the student is opting for both groups, the fee will be INR 3300. Also, the students cannot fill out the form for both the groups and appear for anyone. In this case, the attempt of the student will be considered. Moreover, no such exam fee has been added to the registration form, so the students need to pay this fee while filling up the examination form compulsorily.
