Exemptions granted to you are not shown on the admit card. Please go through the relevant statement of marks of the exam, where in your opinion, you were granted an exemption in a paper(s).
Alphabet “E” printed against the marks of a paper denotes that marks of that paper have been brought forward from an exemption granted in that paper in an earlier attempt.
So also, “#” symbol printed against the marks of a paper denotes that you have been granted an exemption in that paper, which will be valid for the next three following exams. Also the result below that Group shows “F-EX”
If no such symbol or alphabet is printed against the marks of any paper, even
though the marks obtained in that paper may be more than 60, then that
indicates that no exemption has been granted in that paper.
You can log in with your single sing on credentials at http://icaiexam.icai.org on or after 15th April 2017 to check your exemptions.
