    Chartered Accountant is one of the demanding career options for the professional aspirants. Common proficiency test is the simple way to enter into the course. A 10th pass student can register for the CPT. After his/her plus two they can appear for the test. There is no restriction for the marks or the subject chosen. The test is controlled by the Institutes of Charted Accountants of India. In CA CPT, Students need to answer mainly from four major areas. Accounting, mercantile law, Economics and Quantitative are the main areas. The question of quantitative covers the school level topics and you don’t need to study it in your plus two. Each paper constitutes 50 questions each and conducted in two sessions.

    It is not compulsory to include Mathematics in Commerce for going a Chartered Accountant course. You can apply for the CA course after you finished the intermediary examination. In addition, the candidates who are at the last year of +2 are also eligible to apply. There are three eligibility entrance exams for the CA course. Those who are passing the three tests with a certificate from Board of Studies are qualified for getting the admission. Therefore, you can join in a coaching centre before attending the exam. From these institutes you will get guidance and the learning materials. For more details about the exams and all, you can go through the authorized website.

    No, maths is not comulsory to purse commerce stream. You can purse commerce stream withou maths. And if you are interested to become a Charted Accountant, then you have to passed the 10th examination and then you can register for the Competency Professional Test But you can write or give the examination only after passing the Senior Secondary Examination. So, Commerce graduates with 50% marks, non-commerce graduates with subjects other than Mathematics with an aggregate of 55% marks are exempted from the Competency Professional Test and are eligible to register for Professional Competency course. The registration for CPT is open throughout the year. A student may register at any time during the year. The exam will be held twice a year in May and November. And if you want to get complete information, then please visit the official website of ICAI -

    Hi Dear,
    As we talk about Mathematics subject it plays the vital role in every stream either science , arts , commerce or others . But ,it also not necessary to take this subject as compulsory .But you may take it as gaurnteded. While in the case of commerce stream , its your choice whether to take or not. Maths helps you in commerce in the way of many things like while doing big big balance sheets you think that is there any shortcut for it or while solving any calculations. So ,its up to you take it or not. Thanks

    No,Maths is not compulsory if you want to do CA.But I would suggest you opt for maths because then it sometimes becomes difficult to cope up without maths in future.
    For CA,you can register with ICWA for CPT.But you can give the exam only after your 12th.

    HI

    MATHS IS VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECT FOR COMMERCE STUDENTS. IN THE COMMERCE STREAM SO MANY NO OF ITEMS WE NEED TO SUM AND MINUS SOMETIME DIVISION , SOME TIME MULTIPLY

    SO MATHS IS REQUIRED EVERY WHERE.
    u know what --- the latest news is that teachers of the world have declared maths as the second most important subject after english...

    IF YOU hide the maths from the commerce so it would be useless no one can find the answer of the question . so maths is very essential everywhere


    thanks

    Re: Is Mathematics a must to pursue Commerce stream?

    No,to pursue Chartered accountancy maths is not compulsory in fact students of any stream can register for CA course.
    If you are not interested in maths they you can take commerce without maths & take maths as a additional subject in 12th board,knowledge of maths of 11th & 12th is necessary to some extent because there is a quantitative aptitude section in CPT,in which questions from 11th & 12th are asked.
    But for that you can take coaching at time of giving exam.
    After CPT,only basic maths is required.
    Choose what you are interested in.
    Best of luck
