Student Enrollment and Session Timings
NCA effectively runs two half-yearly sessions every academic year (January to December). Intakes will open a month prior to the beginning of the semester. The intakes begin at 1st May for the June Intake and on 1st December for the January intake.
The core papers are conducted on a semi-annual basis which are targeted for the exam sessions in June and December. The session begins within the first week of the month of July and January for the June and December sessions respectively. However, considering the quarterly examinations held by ACCA bespoke sessions are also conducted targeting the March and September exam sittings.
For students who have enrolled during the middle of the session, recovery classes are held by NCA in order to catch up with the course progression. In case of such circumstances, the respective faculties will be conducting the sessions after consulting with the administration regarding the planning of such sessions.
A total of three tests will be taken for each paper, where two mock-sessions will be conducted while the course progresses, and the lectures will be closed with a final mock test for the students. The sessions will be timed and will be conducted under exam conditions so that the students will adapt easily with the exam environment. Followed by the mock session, discussion classes will be held whereby the core issues are highlighted in the class and a constructive feedback is provided to the students based on their performance.
Annual scholarships are awarded by NCA to five deserving candidates. The screening of candidates is done through a series of review of academic credentials, scholarship examination and a final interview with the candidates. The scholarship awarded will cover the registration, tuition and examination fees along with free study materials for the Applied Knowledge level of the candidate. Additionally, the top scorer of each paper at NCA will be provided with 100% concession in the tuition fees for another paper that they opt for the immediate next session.
Attendance of the students is taken for each paper by the faculty themselves and is submitted to the NCA administration at the end of each lecture. If any student remains absent for more than a third of the total planned lectures, the management could disallow the student to attend further classes without providing a refund of the tuition fees paid whatsoever. If, the student decides to discontinue the class, the student is responsible to inform the management by clearly stating the reason for the withdrawal from the subject.

Each student of NCA will be provided with the student identity card with a validity of a year. The identity card will be renewed for subsequent sessions provided that the student continues to study further papers at NCA. In case of loss or replacement or the student identity card, re-issuance fees shall be charged accordingly.
Reference or recommendation letter will be provided to both existing and alumni of NCA upon the submission of a formal application of the student disclosing the reason for the letter.
