    Re: Is CPT compulsory after graduation to become CA? If Not,Can I directly do IPCC?

    Yes, you can apply for IPCC after completion of your graduation.

    The minimum eligibilty for registering as a CA student is a pass certificate in 10th. A student who have just passed his/her 10th becomes eligible for applying to CA's CPT course but, can appear for the exam only after completion of 12th. In same to enrol for IPCC a student has to either clear his/her CPT exam or should have passed his/her graduation in any discipline from a recognized university with a valid percentage.

    Last week the ICAI Council made easier by changing eligibility criteria for enroling in IPCC. According to the new format by passed by the council students who have completed their 2nd year of graduation are eligible to appear for IPCC directly. Although this new format has been approved by the ICAI council it is yet to be approved by the Government Official. Once, it also get Government approval the ICAI will anounce it officially and you may apply for IPCC directly after you complete your 2nd year. In this case you won't have to wait till your graduation gets completed.

    But, its yet be officially anounced till then you may wait and concentrate on your graduation.

    Re: Is CPT compulsory after graduation to become CA? If Not,Can I directly do IPCC?

    Yes you can do directly... As ICAI president G Ramaswamy told the media on 11th june that, students who have completed two years of graduation can directly appear for Intermediate Proficiency Competency Course (IPCC) which is the final step in becoming a CA after doing apprenticeship. Even those students who have not appeared for Std XII exam but have done a diploma and a vocational course followed by two years of graduation also need not appear for CPT...

    If you are opting for CA after your graduation then you can directly apply for Intermediate course.
    There is no need of giving CPT.
    CPT is for those who apply for Foundation course after 10+2.
    You can directly go for Intermediate course.

    CPT or common proficiency test is something like an entrance exam for IPCC and is Compulsory.
    To register for IPCC one should pass CPT and 10+2 exam

    Re: Is CPT compulsory after graduation to become CA? If Not,Can I directly do IPCC?

    No, it is not at all possible to appear for IPCC(Integrated Professional Competence Course;CA intermediate level) before qualifying for the first level or
    CA entrance exam that is CPT(Common Proficiency Test).So, we can safely conclude that it is compulsory to appear for CPT before moving ahead in this
    direction.

    The institute has set up a particular procedure to enter into this profession.And that procedure is required to be followed by every candidate who is desirous of
    becoming a Chartered Accountant.So, firstly you have to register for the CA entrance exam and then you have to appear for CPT.
    If you qualified this examination, you would be eligible to appear for the next level that is intermediate level.

    As you have already completed your graduation in commerce, you would be much comfortable with the course.As you have already studied a lot about
    the basics of accountancy and other subjects related to commerce in your higher secondary and graduation, it would be much easier for you to understand the
    complicated matters which you would be required to study during the course.

    This course can not only offer you a good salary or a handsome remuneration but also a reputed position in any organisation. The procedure to become a
    Chartered Accountant can be explained as follows:-
    1)First level-
    The first level is CPT. It is an objective examination of 200 marks and consists of 100 questions. There are four sections in the examination each of 50 marks.
    The questions are asked form four subjects which can be stated as follows-
    Quantitative aptitude
    Fundamentals of accountancy
    Economics
    Mercantile law.
    The student requires at least 100 marks to clear the exam. And if a student scored more than 75%m in the exam, he is given a distinction certificate.

    2)Second level-
    The intermediate level is IPCC and there are seven papers which are required to cleared to qualify this exam. The subjects are divided into two groups.
    The subjects asked in the exam are as follows:
    Accountancy group 1
    Cost accounting
    Financial management
    Taxation- Direct tax and indirect taxes.
    Corporate law
    Information technology
    Strategic management
    Audit
    Accountancy group 2
    The exam is usually conducted twice a year in the month may and November.

    3)Third level-
    The third level is CA final exam. This exam also consists of two groups. And the student is required to clear both of the groups to qualify this exam. This
    exam is also conducted twice in a year. But before appearing for this exam the student is required to pursue three years of rigorous article ship training
    under a practicing Chartered accountant or in other words a Chartered Accountant who has a certificate of practice stating that he or she is working as a professional
    CA in India.

    Re: Is CPT compulsory after graduation to become CA? If Not,Can I directly do IPCC?

    CPT is only compulsory for the candidates who are applying for CA course after 12th.

    CPT stands for Common Proficiency Test.

    It is the first stage of CA course .

    To apply for CPT you need to have completed your 12th.

    To get in to IPCC you need to clear CPT.

    But if you have completed Graduation then you can directly appear for IPCC with out Clearing CPT.

    To apply for IPCC with CPT you need to have completed your Graduation with minimum of 60% .

    If you are from Commerce Background then you need to have minimum of 55%.

    There is NO Age Criteria for doing CA course.

    So as you are going to complete your Graduation you can apply for IPCC with out CPT but see that you satisfy all the above criteria .

    No CPT is not compulsory for Graduates.

    CPT is the first level of Chartered Accountancy Course.

    The candidates completing 12th class study neccessary have to qualify Common Proficiency Test.

    The graduates of Commerce must have scored 55 %.
    And 60 % for Non Commerce graduates.

    They directly apply to IPCC examination if have scored above percentage.

    The IPCC course duration consist of 9 months.

    Thanks
