Arpit (CA Final) 11 August 2018
I had lots of personal problems in addition to failing (and losing motivation) to pass even 1 group. I was planning to convert to new final course for a few months. Finally I filled the form 2 days back. But now I am worried about the deadline for filling exam forms since I WISH to appear for final new course exam in Nov 2018 itself.
How long does it take to receive confirmation from ICAI about the conversion?
What if it doesn't arrive till the LAST date of exam forms for Nov 2018? Will I be forced to fill exam form for the old course then?
Thanks in advance.

The last date of conversion from old to new scheme for Nov-2018 CA exams was 01.08.2018 which was later extended to 04.08.2018.
Since, you said that you filled the form 2 days back; it means that you have missed the deadline of conversion for Nov-2018 exams.
So, now the issue here is, as you have converted to new scheme after the deadline, it means that you have to give Nov-2018 exams under old scheme. But please confirm this point with ICAI-Exam helpline.

It takes about 15 days to get converted assuming fees for conversion is verified and confirmed. However, If conversion doesn't happen in such time then use ICAI e-sahaayataa,
