Here is the Extract of the ICAI Notification :

Pursuant to the amendment in CA Regulations, 1988, a candidate who has passed either or both the Groups of Intermediate (Integrated Professional Competence) Examination can commence their Articleships.
In other words, now students of IPCC can commence their Practical Training even after passing Group 2 or Group 1 or both the groups of IPCC Examination.

You can check the same by referring to following link :-  Official Notification

Also see :- How many leaves in Articleship is allowed : Articleship Leave

Students who are afraid of giving both the papers due to lack of confidence of passing both groups are benefited the most. Earlier to this notification only students who have articleshippassed first group of their CA IPCC exams can join Articleship or you can say practical training. Their are many students who attempted both groups of  CA IPCC exams but only got success in their second group. Result into unable to start their articleship.


This amendment will help more students to attemp both groups at CA IPCC level. We at CA Notes welcomes the decision taken by ICAI and encourage students to try attempting both groups in one go. Many of Big firms prefer students who have passed both group of CA IPCC in their offices.
