CA Foundation Subjects | Papers for May/Nov 2019

We already know that ICAI has renamed the entrance test CA CPT to CA Foundation course. This article is useful for students looking for information about CA foundation Subjects for May 2019 and November 2019 Exam. Since the subjects have been recently announced, it is expected that it will stay the same for 2020. But, if there are any changes we will mention the same here in this article.

CA Foundation Subjects | Papers – Basics

Overall, there are 4 papers or subjects in CA Foundation, out of which 2 are subjective type papers and 2 are objective types.

Paper 1 and Paper 2 are Subjective papers.

Paper 3 and Paper 4 are objective type papers.

Earlier all the papers were objective types.  But, now subjective papers include theoretical questions in the exam. It means students will have to write those subjective answers rather than select an answer from 4 options.

This surely makes the papers more difficult to score.

However,  objective questions will also be asked in the subjective papers.  So, essentially it will be a mixed paper. Questions will be subjective as well as objective types.

Paper 3 and Paper 4 are completely of objective types. However, one thing must be very careful. Negative marking for selecting wrong options is there in the objective papers.  So, students must be very careful.

Now, let us discuss  CA Foundation subjects and marks for each chapter below.
