    Dear freind,

    As all above member had guide you very well regarding C.A scope and how to get admission and which subject were there.
    IN this course there is three stage as mention above..ok..but i wil suggest u to do Take admission for bachelor drgree of commerce..do both simantenously..as almost c.a studies help you in degree course also..if right now you are cleared 12th then you have give cpt and you will be eligible for next level..i.e PCC.but in this course you have under go on job training around for 2.5 or 3 year as it called articleship..so all this this can be completed easily while you are appearing for degree course and just after comlpeteing that you can have time do give final exan of C.a..so it will save you time and again you have professional as well as bachelor degree in hand....i hope you understand my views...

    Look at you can not do this because without completing any degree you can not get certificate. Then without completing the CA degree, you get the CA passed certificate? How is possible.?
    Therefore first complete your CA degree is the good option for you.

    Without completing you never tell to other I am CA.

    Re: Is it possible to become a Chartered Accountant without completing any degree?

    Yes it is possible to become an Chartered accountant without graduation degree .

    The candidates are eligible to registor for CA course after Intermediate Class completing .
    No minimum percentage required for getting admission to CA course ,but the Intermediate passport candidates have to qualify an entrance examination known as CPT ( common proficiency test ).

    The candidates are required to registor to ICAI Board for CA course admission to the designated Centre of ICAI.

    CA course has three stages :
    CPT
    IPCC
    and Articleship traning + Final course .
    First the 12th passed Candidates have to clear Common proficiency test to eligible for next stage .
    Without clearing CPt they cannot apply fo second level of CA course .

    So if your Intermediate study is completd from a recognized board of school than your are eligible for CA course.

    Thanks

    Re: Is it possible to become a Chartered Accountant without completing any degree?

    DEAR FRIEND



    Of course you can do Chartered Accountancy course without having completed graduation. Any candidate who has completed 12th standard from a recognized board is eligible for the Chartered Accountancy course.

    Therefore please do not worry about applying for the Chartered Accountancy. Since you have not completed graduation, Common Proficiency Test would become mandatory for you.

    Common Proficiency Test is the first step of the Chartered Accountancy course. You can only take admission for the IPCC after clearing this test. It is conducted twice in a year and any candidate who has completed 12th standard is eligible for this test.

    In case of graduation degree holders, Common Proficiency Test is not always required to be taken. Those who meet certain percentage in commerce and non commerce courses are eligible for direct admission.

    However this does not apply on you since you haven't completed graduation. Therefore my advise would be to first register for the Common Proficiency Test and appear for it.

    There are two groups in the Common Proficiency Test. You will have to score at least 30 percent marks in each group in order to clear the test. Otherwise you will have to reappear for it.

    1. Fundamentals of Accountancy

    2. Economics

    3. Mercantile Law
    4. Quantitative Aptitude

    After clearing the test, please apply for the Integrated Professional Competancy Course (IPCC).



    all the best
