So you want to become a Chartered Accountant ? Well, here is all the information you need .


CA(Chartered Accountancy) is a professional course and one of most prestigious and perhaps the most toughest course in India .(Thanks to ICAI) . Approximately 20 Out of 100 Students generally pass at each stage of this course and mind you there are 3 stages i.e. CPT , IPCC and the dreaded FINAL .

syllabus of ca

But don”t panic (yet :p) . Its not actually that difficult (Okay may be a little)

Being a professional course , it is aimed to build 3 qualities in its students .  Yes 3 , the unlucky number , is the key to moola. The 3 qualities are Consistency , Consistency and Consistency .  Clarification for back benchers : Its consistency in studies and not in giving attempts ( no pun intended )
