    Re: What steps should I follow to become a chartered accountant?

    Hello,
    As you have not mentioned that what you doing rite now, therefore i have to give you the most general answer
    After 10th go for commerce maths and then prepare for CPT from 11th class onwards by concentrating more on those topics which are same with CPT..
    Then go for B.Com in Private as you can not do regular B.Com. with CA..
    As just after 12th you have to give CPT exam by registering yourself in the month of september - october when you are in 12th mid, then just after maximum 1 year of your CPT go for IPCC then 2.5 years of training under any CA firm and then the final exam..
    The total time duration would be around 4 years, if you clear all levels in first attempt..

    All the best

    You will have to qualify in all the three levels of CA course. As part of first level, you need to register for CPT in CA after 10th class. This is a foundation test which you can attend after 12th class. If you get through CPT you should appear for IPCC. But there is an exception to this rule for graduates. Graduates can attend IPCC directly with out CPT. Those who clear IPCC need to go for article ship training for 3 years. On completing this training program, you can attend final CA course. Candidates who qualify all these 3 levels will be qualified CA.
