    There are three stages in CA they are
    1.CPT
    2.IPCC
    3.CA FINALS
    These are the stages for the CA course to get into the course previously people used to write the CPT. But now if the student had completed degree with 55% from the commerce group he can directly take IPCC. The total duration to complete INTER & FINAL in CA is 36 months.

    Re: What is the duration of CA course?

    Chartered accountancy is one of the most reputed professions of the country.After becoming a CA , you would not only gain
    economic security but also a lot of social reputation in the society.Basically the course structure is divided into three stages:

    1)CPT(Common proficiency test)-This is the first stage in the whole process.It is an objective examination of 200 marks.
    And you require at least 100 marks to clear the exam.There are basically four sections in the exam that are-
    Fundamentals of accountancy, economics, mercantile law and quantitative aptitude.

    2)IPCC(Integrated professional competence course)-
    This is the intermediate stage.This is a subjective examination consisting of seven exams.It is divided into 2 sections.

    3)CA Final-This is the final stage but before that you would be required to complete three years of
    article ship training under a chartered accountant.

    Basically the duration of the course is only four and a half year.But it also depends on the number of attempts
    that you appear before clearing the exams.

    Formerly one shoud have passed graduation preferably B.Com with 50% average marks and minimum 50% in English. Now after 12th one can try for the course provided one passes the Foundation Course of one year. One has to join a Chartered Accountant as assistant and after about 18 months one can appear for the intermediate of the CA course and after completion of the apprenticeship final has to be competed. Overall it takes about 3 years and 6 months maximum if one get through the exams in time. The career has good prospects. All the best.

    The Chartered Accountancy course comprises of
    CPT, IPCC, Articled Training and Final course.
    Theoretically it should take minimum 6-7 years to complete the CA course after 10+2.
    Graduates with following academic qualification could minimize the course duration by almost one year.

    Candidate should have passed
    either
    Graduation in commerce discipline with 50% or more marks
    or
    Graduation in non commerce discipline with 55% or more marks
    but without Mathematics subject in graduation.
    or
    Graduation in non commerce discipline with 60% or more marks
    but with Mathematics subject in graduation.

    If you satisfy any one of these academic qualification, you can apply for IPCC directly
    without qualifying CPT.
    After passing one group exam or both group exams, you will have to udergo 3 years
    articled training.
    After passing both the group exams of IPCC and completion of Articled Training, you can
    apply for Final course examination.
