    Re: Can I do CA along with B.Com course? If yes, How can I do this?

    Yes, it is possible for the candidates to opt for the CA course along with B.Com. CA course includes a CPT exam which is an entry level test. IPCC is the second level in CA. Only graduates can attend the IPCC exam. CA is regarded as a professional course and not as a graduation course. It is advisable for you to complete your B.Com and then attend the IPCC exam related to CA course. If one gets qualified in this level, you need to attend the article ship training for 3 years. Final course of CA can be attended only after successful completion of the article ship training.

    Re: Can I do CA along with B.Com course? If yes, How can I do this?

    Yes off course you can pursue chartered accountancy along with B.com(Bachelor of commerce).
    But you cannot pursue article ship(this is a compulsory training which a student is required to undergo in order to
    be a chartered accountant) while pursuing graduation from a regular college.But you can even pursue this training
    with graduation provided you are doing it from correspondence mode.

    So, for that purpose I would suggest you to prepare for CPT(common proficiency test) after completing your
    higher secondary.And you can appear for the exams even before your first year of graduation starts.
    After that you can prepare fro IPCC(Integrated professional competence course) and after nine months of clearing
    the first level,you are eligible for the next level.Then after appearing for this exam, you can start your article ship
    after completing your graduation.
