    Re: How long will it take to complete CA course?

    DEAR The council of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has decided to reduce the chartered accountant (CA)course to three-and-a- half years from the current five years and three months course. It has also decided to revamp the course structure.
    you can take up the common proficiency test (CPT) on passing class XII, and straight away.
    undergo three-and-a- half years of practical training.
    if you are completed your 10th standard you can register your name for CA ,but you have right to give CA-CPT exam after 12th standard.
    CPT is an Objective type test requiring Basic Knowledge of the subjects covered. CPT will be held two times in a year: June and December.
    • fundamentals of accounting:- this carries 60 marks
    • merchant laws:-this carries 40 marks, you have to attempt in two hours
    • general economics:-50 marks
    • quantitative aptitude:- 50 marks , you have to attempt this two in two hours.
    • you have to get 50% of marks to qualify for the nest round .
    you have to complete your registration before 2 months or more than that.
    eligibility for the IPCE
    you have to pass CPT and 10+2 exam to get eligible,
    you have to enroll for this examination at 9 months before examination,after registration for the IPCC you have to take 100hours ITT course with ICAI.
    • paper-1-accounting carries 100 marks,
    • paper-2-law,ethics,communication
    • part-1-law carries 60 marks,
    [U]business law carries 30 marks,
    company law carries 30 marks,
    part-2-business ethics carries 20 marks,
    part-3-business communication carries 20 marks,
    • paper 3-cost accounting and financial management
    part-1-cost accounting carries 50 marks,
    part-2-financial management carries 50 marks,
    • paper 4-taxation
    part-1:income tax carries 50 marks,
    part2:service tax carries 225 marks and VAT 25 marks.

    • paper-5 -advanced accounting carries 100 marks,
    • paper-6 - auditing and assurance carries 100 marks,
    • paper-7 - information technology and strategic management
    part-1: information technology carries 50 marks,
    part-2: strategic management carries 50 marks ,

    after passing the IPCE you are going to enter into the final course called ARTICLESHIP
    to write the article ship you should pass at least group-1 of IPCE and should have completed ITT of 100 hours.
    after the article ship you have to write the final course
    syllabus for the final course
    • financial reporting,
    • strategic financial management,
    • advanced auditing and professional ethics,
    • corporate laws and secretarial practice
    • advanced management accounting,
    • information systems control,
    • direct taxes,
    • indirect taxes,
    so dear all the best

    hi, it normally takes 4.5to 5 yrs to complete CA .the following information may help you

    ->start preparing for CPT & Pass the CPT entrance exam
    -> Start preparing for IPCC (exactly 9 months after CPT will be your IPCC exam)
    -> Give IPCC and clear it.
    -> Once you are cleared with IPCC then you start your 3 and 1/2 years articleship.
    -> and you can give CA finals any time during or after the last 6 months of your articleship.
