Mangaluru: The Central India Chartered Accountant Students Association (CICASA) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) are jointly organising a two-day long CA Students’ Conference `Vidwath` in Town Hall from December 12.

In order to help the students who are pursuing CA course, CICASA has been organising seminars, workshops and interaction programmes in which experts will participate and share important information”, he said.
In order to popularise commerce education, the career counselling group, ICAI is conducting a commerce talent search test called as ICAI Commerce Wizard-2018. It is a diagnostic test that measures the concept understanding ability of the student. Unlike regular tests which try only to find out how much a child knows, this test measures how well a student has understood the concepts. Students of IX, X, XI, XII and B Com/BBA/BMS/Allied subjects will be eligible to take this test (online test- Level I) on January 6.
The level II test will be held on January 20.
