    CA Entrance examination is a very important exam for the commerce students in India. These examinations are conducted throughout the country for recruiting students with ICAI.

    CA is an abbreviation of Chartered Accountant. ICAI is also known as the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, which is the 2nd largest accounting organization across the globe. This statutory body is associated with maintaining and developing highly ethical accounting and auditing standards.

    Eligibility for CA Entrance Exams

    1. The aspiring candidate for a CA exam should have cleared the Senior Secondary Examination (10+2). Students waiting for (10+2) results can also apply.

    2. Students can join a CA program after (10+2) or graduation. There is no restriction in terms of age or percentage secured in (10+2).

    Admission Process and CA Entrance Exam Pattern

    1. CPT Common Proficiency Test is the most important examination to be cleared by the candidates in order to enter the area of chartered accountancy.

    2. Common proficiency test is conducted 2 times in a year in the months of June and December.

    3. CPT includes 4 subject tests that the candidate is required to clear. The subjects are as follows:

    A: Accounting
    B: Mercantile Laws
    C: General Economics
    D: Quantitative Aptitude Test

    4. CPT is a 2 hours exam and is divided into 2 sessions each. CPT is an objective type 200 marks exam with negative marking for wrong answers.

    5. The CPT examination requires the candidate to secure 50% marks for qualifying.

    The qualification required to apply for CA is 12th class. Students need to pass 12th class in a particular subject of their choice. CA CPT Level can be opted by 12th class students. Those students who clear CPT exam can join IPCC. Graduates can opt for IPCC even with out attending CPT. IPCC exams will focus on subjects like financial accounting, business law, cost accounting, business communication etc. This level also includes practical training as well. Article ship training is part of this level. IT training for 100 hours is also included in IPCC. Those students who are able to clear IPCC along with the mentioned training programs can pursue final level CA.

    You need to have completed your 12th to apply for CPT.

    You need to Clear CPT to appear for IPCC.
