We have been getting numerous queries from students regarding the CA IPCC Result Date for Nov 2016 Exams, and for same, the following information is provided. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) is the authority body that declares IPCC Exam Results. These details on IPCC Result are provided based on inputs from Regional Council Members of ICAI.

In our previous post, we have already made available Time Table for next IPCC Exams to be held in May 2017 and also Study Plan for the same.

CA IPCC Result Date Nov 2016

The Results of CA IPCC Exams held in November 2016 are likely to be declared on Friday 3rd February, 2017.

IPCC Expected Pass Percentage Nov 2016

Based on the inputs from Members of the Regional Council, the Pass Percentage of CA IPCC Exams held in November 2016 will likely be as follows:

Module Pass %
Both Groups 13.68%
Group 1 16.19%
Group 2 9.47%

It is seen that, the pass percentage of CA IPCC exams held in November 2016 will be significantly higher when compared to all previous IPCC exams.

There has been a common misconception among students that, if the exam paper is easy, then the paper valuation will be tough. It won’t be that way, and students can see tremendous increase in pass out rate this time for CA IPCC.

This increase in pass percentage is due to various suggestions and complaints received from member of the ICAI.

Inside sources say  that, qualified Chartered Accountants in Practice are short of Article Students and therefore, there is a sudden demand for IPCC Qualified students.

Keeping this Demand Supply proportion in mind, the pass percentage of CA IPCC students will be high for November 2016 exams held recently.

What to do after the IPCC Exams:

Students normally get a 2 month gap between Nov 2016 exam completion date and the Result Date. Most IPCC students waste this 2 months time waiting for the results.

During this time, students are suggested to join IT Courses like ‘Tally’, which will be later very useful during the Articleship Period. There are also many Tally related free youtube courses for students.

Alternatively, students can also join a local Chartered Accountant firm and work as an Paid Assistant, which helps in bringing tremendous amount of practical exposure to the student.

ICAI Pass Certificate

CA IPCC Students who have cleared the exam will get a Pass Certificate to their Registered Address. Generally, it takes 2-3 months for ICAI to send this from the date of declaration of Results.

IPCC Students must note that, this Pass Certificate will be sent to only to those students who have cleared the both groups of IPCC exam.

In other words, those who have cleared only any one group of IPCC will not receive the Pass Certificate.

  1. Isn’t this injustice to those students who were trying their level best to pass from previous 3 attempts and because of continuous failure n criticism by ppl around dropped CA in this very attempt??…..Aren’t u playing with their fortune…ICAI is very unfair…The truth is that exams they conduct do not test students ability…The only motto of exams is to keep ICAI’s nose high..The. Most unfair Institute I’ve ever been associated with!!!!


  2. Utter idiotic thing. ICAI PASSED me in my second attempt when the result of 1st group was 9% and now they will give 19% it spoiled my efforts and now the result for 2nd group will be 6.47%. And again this is unfair for me aand all the students out their who passed in difficult attempt. ICAI is playing with career of students

  3. That was very good news to heard………i m the one of the students struggling to pass group in from last two attempts…I m staying at 190’s

    • Depends on the Firm and also the CAs. They are allowed to hire paid assistants for a temporary period. But you require lot of training and in 2 months you may be more of a liability than asset. I did 2 months training in a small firm in Chennai for very little pay but the amount of exposure I got was immense.

  4. Expected pass percentage give by Finapp is changing every time I read this post.. why is it changing ??? I remember the earlier post had 11% for Ipcc Group 2 and now it shows 6%

  5. I have completed my itt and op training. I have also done my tally course. Pls suggest me any course which i can undergo after my Ipcc nov 16 exams
