In the case if Student is not satisfied with the marks awarded to him he can apply for Inspection and Disclosure of Answer sheets ICAI. The Option of Inspection and Disclosure is available to CA CPT, IPCC and CA Final Students i.e. for all the level. If you are desirous to want totaling of your numbers then go for “Revaluation/Verification of answer sheets” instead “Inspection/Disclosure of answer sheet”  there is a difference in both.


Difference Between “Verification/ Revaluation” and “Certified Copy & Inspection” of Answer Sheets

Verification/ Revaluation of Answer Sheets is a separate thing wherein it is checked that marks have been awarded to all the questions attempted by the Student and re-confirmed that there is no totaling error. Disclosure of Answer Sheet is a separate concept and provides Information for the Academic Guidance of the Student but does not provide any remedy in case of any discrepancy that may be noticed in the process. 

The remedy for any discrepancy lies in the process of Verification of Answer Sheets which is independent and distinct from the Inspection of Answer Sheets. The Process for Verification of Answer Sheet is also different and separate applications have to be made for both.
