CS Foundation Syllabus 2019

The Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) releases the syllabus for CS Foundation and also brings in amendments as and when required. The reason for amendments is the need of the hour where major amendments are introduced into existing legislations by the government. Hence, complying with the existing laws becomes most essential aspect for a profession like Chartered Accountancy. CS Foundation syllabus, as provided by the officials, is so elaborated that students get a clear picture as to what and how they are supposed to prepare through CS Foundation books and other sources. The existing syllabus for CS Foundation 2019 was released in 2017 which brought in major changes to paper 1 and 2. Students should refer the syllabus completely while preparing for the exams so that no last minute hassle awaits.

CS Foundation Study Material 2019

ICSI issues the study material complying with the ongoing syllabus for all the papers. The reason behind this act is that the authorities don’t want students to be dependant upon private coachings and institutes for their study, nor drowned into the sea of heavy books. The CS Foundation study material covers each and every minor to major topic in all the four papers. This makes a student more aware of the direction he/ she has to wander for. Thus, the primary source of preparation should be study material, after which comes the books for CS Foundation as are recommended by the institute.
