    CPT is mandatory for all persons who want to do CA course.

    There is no minimum requirement of marks in B tech to pursue CA course.

    CPT stands for Common Proficiency Test. It is a 200 marks multiple choice test consisting of questions on Maths, Economics, Business Law and Accouting.
    You have to score minimum 50 pc marks to pass the test.

    After CPT, you will have to register with a practicing CA for articleship.

    it will take three years after the cpt that is entrance test. you could have done this after 12th . i suggest instead of CA you should do MBA from a very well reputed B school that will take two years but must be from a top level institution

    All the best

    After graduation you can join the CS course in the intermediate course directly and there is no minimum percentage required for the admission into intermediate course.There are three courses in Company secretary course specified below

    1)FOUNDATION COURSE after 10+2.
    2)INTERMEDIATE COURSE after 10+2+3 or graduation and it has 8 subjects arranged into two groups of 4 papers of 100 marks each
    3)FINAL COURSE has 9 subjects arranged into three groups of 3 papers of 100 marks each.

    Once you pass the Intermediate Course you automatically become eligible for admission to the Final Course.
    The INTERMEDIATE course is of 9 months.

    It depends on you that how much ability you have to complete this professional course(C.A.). Well if you appear for C.A after B.Com you can directly apply for IPCC. For this exams are conducted half yearly i.e. in May and in November.

    Hello friend,
    there are three stages for completing CA -


    First you have to clear the CPT exam , if you are successful then you can sit in IPCC exam, in which you have to spend around 3.5 years with articleship. Finally you can complete CA program with in 5 years , if clear all your exam regularly.

    For doing CA after B.com it will take 4 years if you pass in first attempt.first you have to appear for cp1 which is entrance followed by cp2 which is intermediate. once you get throe then enrol for the article ship with a firm of chartered accountants which is of 3years. then you have your final ca exam and passing the same you become chartered accountant. but why wait till B.com do it after your 12Th and pursue simultaneously your B.Com .while MBA can be done only after graduation.CA Can be compared with MBA from top institute only.Getting into the top B school for MBA is tough while passing CA is equally tough. only b.com is of no use.
