    to give CPT exam is not compulsory.

    If you are graduate from commerce stream with at least 55% and 60% in any other stream you can directly get entry to CA Inter i.e IPCC.

    Those who has passed CWA or CS inter can also get direct entry to CA IPCC.

    Indeed IPCC is compulsory for one who wants to become a CA.

    Dear if you have completed graduation with required percentage for IPCC examination than you will not have to give CPT ( Common Proficiency Test ) examination.

    And if you are apply directly after class 12th study than you must have to appear in CPT exam .

    CA course has mainly following three levels :
    Articleship trainning
    and finally final course.

    You have to register your self for CPT exam .
