    Re: Is CPT entrance required for a post graduate in order to get admission into CA Course?

    DEAR FRIEND.
    CHARTERED ACCOUNTANCY IS A PROFESSIONAL COURSE IN ACCOUNTANCY DEALING WITH THE CONCEPTS OF AUDITING, TAXATION AND ACCOUNTS. THE CHARTERD ACCOUNTANT IS THE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INFLUX AND EFFLUX OF THE FINANCE AND TAXES IN A COMPANY OR A FIRM.
    THIS COURSE IS PROVIDED OFFICIALLY IN INDIA BY THE INSTITUTE OF CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT OF INDIA(ICAI), THE LARGEST CHARTERD ACCOUNTANT INSTITUTE OF INDIA.

    THIS INSTITUTE PROVIDES THIS COURSE AT THREE STAGES:
    1. CPT EXAM: THIS COURSE IS ACCESSIBLE AFTER THE 10TH STANDARD ATER WHICH YOU CAN REGISTER FOR THE COURSE AND GIVE THE EXAM AFTER 12TH.
    THIS EXAM IS NOT COMPULSARY.
    2.IPCC: THIS EXAM IS FOR THE GRADUATES IN ANY DISCIPLINE.
    3. FINAL COURSE: THIS COURSE IS FOR ALL THE STUDENTS CLEARING THE IPCC EXAM.
    AFTER THAT YOU HAVE TO GET THROUGH THE COMPULSARY 100 HOURS TTI AND COMPUTER TRAINING COURSE.

    LET M TELL YOU THAT THE CPT EXAM IS NOT AT ALL COMPULSARY AND CAN BE EXEMPTED FROM AFTER COMPLETING THE FOLLOWING ELIGIBILITY CONDITIONS:THE COMMERCE GRADUATES CAN ENTER DIRFCTLY INTO THE IPCC COURSE IF THEY HAVE GOT 55 PERCENT AND FOR THE NON COMMERCE GRADUATES IT IS 60PERCENT.
    SO YOU BEING THE COMMERCE POST GRADUATE HAVE YOUR UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE AND THAT IS WHY CAN DIRECTLY APPLY IN IPCC NO NEED OF CPT.

    BUT I WILL ADVICE YOU TO GO WITH CA COURSE AS YOU BEING A POST GRADUATE ARE UNDERESTIMATING THE VALUE OF YOUR POST GRADUATE DEGREE WITH GOING FOR CA WHICH IS GRADUATION AGAIN.
    INSTEAD GO WITH FURTHER STUDIES LIKE THAT OF M.PHIL TO GET BETTER CAREER PROSPECTS.

    GOOD LUCK.
    ::HAIDER KHAN::

    Re: Is CPT entrance required for a post graduate in order to get admission into CA Course?

    Yes you have to clear CPT(Common proficiency test) even if you have completed your post graduation course if you want to appear for intermediate level.
    You have mentioned that you have completed your post graduation and now you want to pursue chartered accountancy course, but even if you have done your
    masters then also you would be required to clear even the initial level of the course as this is a set procedure specified by ICAI(Institute of Chartered Accountants).

    Further the procedure to become a chartered accountant can be explained as follows:
    1)CPT-
    This is the first step in the whole procedure.This is an objective examination of 200 marks consisting of 100 questions. The paper is divided into four sections
    each consisting of 50 questions each such as fundamental of accountancy, economics, quantitative aptitude, etc.

    2)IPCC-
    The intermediate level is integrated professional competence course.After clearing the first stage you need to register for the next level and then you would be allotted
    a location where you would be required to appear for the exam.The exam consists of seven papers for example- accountancy, financial management, cost accounting, etc.

    3)CA final exam-
    This is the last step in the whole procedure.For this purpose you need to register for this level after clearing the intermediate level.
    But before this step you need to complete three years of article ship training under a chartered accountant practicing in India.But you can even appear for the exam
    when you have completed two and a half years of article ship training as notified by the institute.

    Chartered Accountancy Course

    Dear Friend

    Only those candidates are given advantage of appearing in IPCC without gving giving CPT,
    who have completed graduation and have scored at least
    50% (B.Com.).
    55% (Non commerce graduate without Maths. in Graduation).
    60% (Non commerce graduate with Maths. in Graduation).

    Post graduation degree doesn't give any advantage as such in the eligibility criteria.
    If your graduation is as mentioned above then you don't have to give CPT otherwise
    you will have to give CPT for sure.

    Re: Is CPT entrance required for a post graduate in order to get admission into CA Course?

    Hi dude,

    No dude you don`t need to appear for CPT.

    CPT is the exam included in CA course.

    For appearing for CPT exam you need to complete your 12th from a recognized university.

    After qualifying CPT you are eligible to appear for IPCC.

    But recently There was a announcement by government that Graduated and postgraduates can directly apply for IPCC with out clearing CPT.

    But you need to have minimum of 55% in your graduation if your from commerce background and minimum of 60 % if non-commerce student !!

    So there is no need of appear for CPT exam if you are a graduate /post graduate.

    ALL THE BEST !!!

    Friend,
    -Being a post-Graduate in Commerce,there is no necessity for you at all to appear for the CPT exams,if you are now looking to pursue the Chartered Accountant Course.
    -Commerce Graduates who have scored a minimum of 55% marks in Graduation are exempted from appearing the CPT exams.The percentage required for non-commerce graduates is 60%.
    -Hence,you can now appear for the IPCC exams,after clearing which,you join a firm for three years of articleship.After completion of these three years span,you appear for the FINALs,the last hurdle between you becoming a Chartered Accountant.
    All The Best!!

    Re: Is CPT entrance required for a post graduate in order to get admission into CA Course?

    No you are not required to give the entrance examination of CPT course being a post graduate student.

    The candidates who have completed class 10+2 study and after this wants to do CA course than they are neccessarily required to give CPT entrance examination.


    CA is a professional course in Accounting and has mainly three levels :
    CPT
    IPCC
    and finally CA.

    For graduation or post graduation done candidates the central government has allowed new rule that they are directly eligible to apply for IPCC .they will not have to purse CPT exam.


    In graduation and PG being a commerce student you must have to score 55% and for non commerce 60 % is needed.


    Registration for CA is opened throughout the year.


    Thanks

    Re: Is CPT entrance required for a post graduate in order to get admission into CA Course?

    hello,

    CPT course was compulsory before sometime but after ICAI's notification in regard of exempting student who has already passed graduation in any recognized university or who holds any equivalent qualification as ecognised by the ICAI the same is not compulsory for them.

    one need to pass graduation in commerce stream with minimum 55% and in any other stream with minimum 60% to get direct entry to CA IPCC i.e CA intermediate without passing CPT.

    May this help you.
