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 )

  5. hello im doing my b.com genral 2nd yr…………is it will be really tough to do CA simultaneously??

  6. Dear All,
    CA course is not the toughest course. This is related to the intelluctual capacity of students. We cannot comment based on the pass percentage. for MBBS/B.Tech and other courses the pass percentage is very high doesnt mean that it is easy. In case of these courses students are getting admission after tough entrance; only the cream will admit and the course is easy for them; whereas if the same course is attended by everybody the pass percentage will be less. If an intelligent student appear for CA it will be so easy and the pass percentage will be high
