    dear
    you also get admission in CA without doing graduation.
    you required minimum 55% marks in 12th with commerce stream
    You get admission after completing ICWA then CPT and then you get admission in CA.
    so, ICWA<CPT<CA




    best of luck.............

    Re: Can I do CA without Graduation?

    Yes you can opt for C.A. without graduation. Chartered accountancy course consist of 3 stages -
    First is a entry level test that is common proficiency test which is a objective type paper and consist of questions from quantitative aptitude, mercantile law, business studies etc.

    Second is integrated proficiency competency examination, which consist of 2 groups each has to be cleared individually and in total consist of 7 papers.

    Third and the last stage is C.A. final .It again consist of 2 groups - group1 and group 2.
    Before coming to C.A. final a candidate has to complete 3 years of compulsory article ship.

    Chartered accountancy is a very difficult course and requires a lot of hard-work. But for a safer side i would advise you to take admission in any graduation course also via correspondence.

    Re: Can I do CA without Graduation?

    Yes of course you can do CA without doing graduation. If you want to become a
    Charted accountant , you first need to register yourself for Common Proficiency
    test (CPT). The Common Proficiency test is the gateway for a course in Charted
    accountancy. It is a entrance examination of subjective type which is of 200
    marks in total.You need to secure of cut off marks which are 100 out of 200.

    The Common Proficiency test tests your skills in four sections which are :-

    - Mercantile Law
    - Quantitative aptitude
    - Fundamentals of Accounting
    - And General economics

    The test is divided into two sessions and each session is of two hours.
    Session 1 covers Fundamentals of Accounting and Mercantile Laws whereas
    Session 2 covers General Economics and Quantitative Aptitude.

    The eligibility for appearing in Common Proficiency test (CPT) is that you
    must be a 12 th pass in science or commerce stream. So you can actually
    need to be only 12 th pass to appear in CPT. However after you clear CPT
    and prepare for the second stage that is the IPCC, you can enroll yourself
    in a Bcom course through correspondence . Because graduation is also necessary
    for you. As it is a basic requirement in some jobs.

    hi
    since you have already completed 12th you need not have any problem in giving the CPT exam .
    And graduation is not necessary for becoming a CA.
    So all the best and prepare well .

    Re: Can I do CA without Graduation?

    Hi dude,

    Yes dude you can do CA course with out doing Graduation .

    CA stands for Charted Accountant.

    To join CA course you need to complete your 12th from a recognized university .

    Your age need to be between 19 to 21 years.

    Mainly CA course consists of 2 stages :-

    CPT(Common Proficiency Test)

    IPCC( Integrated Professional Competence Course)


    CPT is the entrance exam for CA (Charted Accoutant).

    CPT exam is conducted by ICAI board.

    This exam is conducted twice every year, 1st in the month of JUNE and next in the month of december.

    This exam is of 200 marks.

    You need to complete your 12th standard from a reconized university .

    The subjects including CPT exam are :-

    Mathematics ( which is of 50 marks)

    Accountancy (which is of 60 marks)

    Merchantile law (which is of 40 marks)

    Economics (which is of 50 marks)

    The exam is conducted 2 days , 2 hour`s each.

    You need to get 50% that is you need to get 100 marks to get qualified.

    After qualifying CPT only you can appear for IPCC.

    Recently there was a change in appearing for IPCC that is if you complete your Graduation then you are eligible to appear for IPCC with out qualifying CPT.

    So as you have not completed your Graduation you first need to appear for CPT clear it and then appear for IPCC to complete your CA course .

    Re: Can I do CA without Graduation?

    hi...

    yes you can do C.A without graduation...if you go directly for C.A after 12th..you have to give CPT exam...and if you do after graduation ..you will get exemption for CPT if you got 50% and above for commerce student and for non commerce student needs..55%

    I wil suggest you to do C.A along with your b.com studying..so that you have C.A and B.Com degree in your hand...and while studying for C.a...you can easily clear b.com also..as most of topics were similar in both...all the best

    thank you
