    Re: How to become a Chartered Accountant?

    For doing the chartered accountancy course you need to register yourself with ICAI. The minimum qualification required is 12th standard. It will be good for you if you take the commerce stream. The syllabus is similar to the commerce stream. Make sure you get your concepts correct. Only if you have a sound basics will you be able to clear the CA course. When you reach your first year B.Com you should register yourself for the CA course. First you will be required to appear for the Foundation course. On clearing this you will need to appear for the intermediate course. As part of the training you will also need to work under a chartered accountant. On clearing this you will be need to appear for the final exam.

    To become a CA one has to do the Chartered Accountancy Course. It is a professional course in the field of Accounting. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) is the sole authority who offers the course and conducts exams. CA course deals with the study of financial management, taxation and accounting. To join CA you must pass +2 in any stream. There are three exams which you have to pass to get the certification of CA. There are lots of opportunities associated to the course. CA course can help one to start CA firm or join a financial accounting department or serve in taxation departments and so on.

    Re: How to become a Chartered Accountant?

    For becoming a Chartered Accountant(CA), you have to follow 3 steps:-
    1) first you have to register with ICAI for CPT( common proficiency test )
    2) after passing this you again have to register with ICAI for IPCC/PCC( integrated proficiecy competence examination)
    3) after that three years of articleship,then you are eligibile to sit in the C.A. final examination
    but according to the new norm of ICAI ,you can't do your articleship along with your graduation.

    Re: How to become a Chartered Accountant?

    You should choose Commerce stream after 10 th standard
    for doing CA after 10+2.
    While you are in 12th register yourself for CPT.
    CPT stands for Common profeciency test.
    This test has to be cleared to study charted accountancy course.
    After clearing CPT you will have to register for PCC- Professional Competency Course.
    After this exam you need to do internship or practical training.
    Then you have to appear for Final examination .

    Re: How to become a Chartered Accountant?

    To become a Chartered Accountant you can enrol after your 10th only and can start preparing for the CA first stage exam CPT. You can give exam of CPT only after the completion of your 12th. There is no subject criteria for this course. Student from any background can join CA. But, since you eagerly wish to become a CA it is recommended to to commerce in your 10+2 level, which will help you prepare for the CPT exam.

    I'm attaching a file which will help you understand in more brief the steps involved in becoming a CA.

    For instnace the whole CA course is divided in three segments :

    • CPT
    • IPCC
    • FINAL


    In order to become CA you need to pass each exam in the minimum time.

    Re: How to become a Chartered Accountant?

    CA is a very vast course. A candidate must be 12th pass with good marks and from a reputed college can give exams of CA.
    There are many exams which a candidate has to give to become CA.
    There are many exams like Frst you'll have to clear CPT, then IPCC then IPCW and then CA final.
    These exams are very tough.

    Good luck..

    To become Charted accountant you need to complete your 10+2 with commerce. if you take commerce in 10+2 then it becomes easy to study CA as both has similar subjects.
    to become CA you need to register with ICAI. then you need to write CA/CPT , IPCC, IPCW.and CA FINAL exams.
    CA is complicated and you need to work hard.
    you should not have any backlogs. you should complete all the subjects with in the given time.
    after passing CA final you can become CA.
    All the best
