The ICSI (Institute of Company Secretaries of India) has confirmed that a number of changes will be made in the CS Examinations.
The Council decided it on 4th and 5th May 2019 in a meeting and will come into effect from December 2019 Examination session.
Given below are the papers of the Executive Programme which is the New Syllabus that will be based on OMR-
- Module – I Paper – 4 : Tax Laws
- Module – II Paper – 5 : Corporate and Management Accounting
- Module – II Paper – 8 : Financial and Strategic Management
The examination schedule will be changed from the December 2019 session because many requests were received for it and to make the CS examination easy for the students. Another benefit that the students have received is that there will be a one day leave for each paper of CS Examination and it has been given the green signal.
