But no official announcement has been made yet, so you must check regular updates on the CA Foundation Result Date for Jan 2021. Also, read more important details about the result of the CA Foundation below.

CA Foundation Important Dates

Below are the important dates related to the CA Foundation Nov 2020 exams:

CA Foundation Nov 2020 exams Rescheduled for Dec 2020 

(10th Dec 2020–14th Dec 2020)

CA Foundation Nov/Dec 2020 Result  Announced on 8th Feb 2021
CA Foundation Nov 2020 2nd Cycle  Scheduled in Jan 2020 

(21st Jan 2021–28th Jan 2021)

CA Foundation Result Nov 2020 2nd Cycle Mar 2021 (Expected Result Date)

CA Foundation Nov 2020 Exams 2nd Cycle (i.e., Jan 2021 Exams)

As you all know, ICAI gave an opt-out option for students who have registered for the Nov 2020 attempt. Due to COVID-19, many students selected this opt-out option. 

ICAI announced that all those students who have selected this opt-out option wouldn’t have to wait longer and will be able to give CA Foundation exams in Jan 2021 itself. So these Jan 2021 exams are also called the 2nd cycle of Nov 2020 exams. The Jan 2021 exams for CA Foundation were held from 21st Jan 2021 to 28th Jan 2021.

CA Foundation Result Date of Jan 2021 Exams (Expected)

ICAI has initiated to check the answer copies of CA Foundation exams through digital evaluation since the last few attempts. So after that, the results are usually released within 50-60 days of the last exam. 

The CA Foundation Dec 2020 exams were over on 14th Dec 2020, and ICAI released the CA Foundation Result 2020 on 8th Feb 2021.

So if we calculate the days between the last CA Foundation exam and the result announcement, we can say that ICAI took around 56 days to release the CA Foundation Result.

Last exam date: 14th Dec 2020

Time taken by ICAI to announce CA Foundation Result Nov 2020:

17 (Dec) + 31 (Jan) + 8 (Feb) = 56 days 

Similarly, the Foundation Result Jan 2021 will be released around 50-60 days after the last exam. The last paper of CA Foundation Jan 2021 was scheduled on 28th Jan 2021, so on an estimate, we can expect the release date to be between 19th Mar 2021 to 29th Mar 2021.

Last exam date: 28th Jan 2021

Estimated time taken by ICAI to announce CA Foundation Result: 50 to 60 days

50 days from 28th Jan 2021: 19th Mar 2021

[50 days = 3 (Jan) + 28 (Feb) + 19 (Mar)] 

60 days from 28th Jan 2021: 29th Mar 2021

[60 days = 3 (Jan) + 28 (Feb) + 29 (Mar)] 

Though you must also note that the number of students who appeared in the 2nd cycle of CA Foundation Nov 2020 (i.e., the Jan 2021 exams) is less than the number of students that normally appear in the exams. Due to this reduced number of candidates, ICAI may complete the evaluation of answer sheets earlier and announce the results before the expected CA Foundation Result Date.

What to do till ICAI releases the CA Foundation Result?

CA Foundation Jan 2021 Result will be released soon, and you will get your CA Foundation Marksheet, but you don’t have to waste your time while waiting for the results. If you are sure that you will pass the CA Foundation exams, you must start preparing for CA Intermediate.

First, gather information about the CA Inter eligibility and registration, subjects and syllabus. Then find a good coaching institute for yourself and start your studies. 

Are CA Foundation January 2021 students eligible for appearing in the CA Inter November 2021 attempt?

This is an important query from the students who appeared in the CA Foundation Jan 2021 attempt. But to make things clear below is the complete brief on the whole situation. 

For appearing in the CA Intermediate Nov 2021 exam (through the CA Foundation route), the eligibility criteria as per ICAI is:

You must have passed the CA Foundation and have a study period of eight months after the registration.  

According to these criteria, ICAI has kept 1st Mar as the last registration date for CA Intermediate Nov 2021 exams. You must have cleared CA Foundation before registering.

Result Announcement: Mid March 2021

Last date of registration: 1st Mar 2021

However, the CA Foundation Result of Jan 2021 exams will be released after mid-March only. You would miss the last date of registration, and thus you won’t be eligible to give the CA Inter Nov 2021 attempt.

Note: The difference in the number of days is very less, and ICAI can leverage this time so that the students who appeared in CA Foundation Jan 2021 can appear in the Nov 2021 CA Inter. Last year also ICAI adjusted their regulations, so this year also they can reduce the study period required for the CA Intermediate exam registration. However, ICAI has not made any official announcement till yet, so you should stay tuned to the ICAI website. 

Overall, we can conclude that ICAI will announce results for CA Foundation Nov 2020 cycle two exams in March 2021. You can also expect to appear in the CA Inter Nov 2021 exams if ICAI gives the relaxation. So now that you know about the CA Foundation Result, you can start further planning. Be ready to move a step towards your dreams.
