    Re: Can a degree student simultaneously do CA course or not?

    Hello Aspirant,
    Yes, definitely you can.

    Courses like Chartered Accountancy, Company Secretaries, etc can be pursued in correspondence.
    These courses are mostly done after one's +2, or one's degree course.

    But if one does it after +2 or degree, it creates a difference of courses and exemptions.

    Some years before, even if one is a +2 pass-out or a degree holder, one had to start one's CA from the scratch, i.e; clearing CPT and then going for IPCC.
    But now, the provision has been made, where a degree student can claim for exemption from the initial exam and can directly appear for IPCC.

    But, if you want to do it now, you will have to work for CPT or else you can complete your degree, or may be in your final year of graduation, you can apply for IPCC, claiming exemption from CPT.
    If you are preparing now, you can also take up coaching for CA as it helps one to be in sync with the proper pace needed for the preparation.

    All the best!!!

    Re: Can a degree student simultaneously do CA course or not?

    Yes you can do CA course along with your Degree Course.

    To do CA course you need to have completed your 10+2.

    There is No Age limit.

    So as you have completed your 10+2 you can do CA course.

    CA is a course which has mainly 2 stages they are CPT and IPCC .

    CPT is the first stage of CA course.

    You need to have qualified CPT to be eligible to apply for IPCC.

    After IPCC you will having a Final Interview .

    So your eligible to apply for CA course.

    But see that you have inuf time to Prepare for CA course.

    Because its not so easy to Completed CA course.

    Your Degree Collage will not provide any Coaching for CA course.

    You need to join in Coaching Centers as you can not study on your own for CA course.

    So Schedule your timing so that you can manage both CA and Degree at a time.

    yes, you can pursue B.Com simultaneously with CA.

    Both courses are conducted by different institutes. Chartered Accountancy is a professional course and is not a graduate course.

    Doing B.Com along with CA is not as tough.
    The subjects in B.Com will be covered up in CA itself.

    You can give CPT exam and after clearing that you can start preparing for CA inter exam and on the other hand you can do B.Com also.

    Any University has no objection in doing CA along with graduation course. After passing your 12th you can enroll for CA and graduation at same. In this way you'll save your time and will complete the course in shorter period of time.

    But that would mean you need to be responsible and plan your daily activities well so that both does not affected.

    It requires lot of hard work to do both courses at same time.
