Geoffrey’s Answer

You need a Bachelors degree in Accounting, most universities have similar core courses for this (e.g. Basic and Intermediate Financial Accounting, Economic, Statistics, Marketing etc). There are also Electives that one can choose from.


After your degree you can register to take the Certified Public Accountant exam (Chartered Accounting in some parts of the world). Once approved, you can start the studying process which can be self -study if you buy the materials or offered by various companies at a fee.


You may also look at University programs that have built in the certification process as part of their curriculum, so you take the certification exam at the end of all your university coursework.


Best wishes

Madhusudhan’s Answer

Chartered accountancy has been one of the most popular career choices in India. This profession is not easy to get into but if you manage to do so, it offers a great career path, salary, and respect among people. One of the reasons why people respect chartered accountants is not because of the designation or pay, it is mainly because it is not easy to become one.
To become a chartered accountant, you would need to pass a series of tests, but before taking these set of examinations, you need to pass your XIIth. Once you have cleared your high school, this is the list of exams you need to clear in the given order.

CA Foundation course (previously known as CPT or Common Proficiency Test)
Integrated Course on Information Technology and Soft skills (ICITSS)
CA Intermediate (previously known as IPCC or Integrated Professional Competence Course)
Articleship (3-year training)
Advanced Integrated Course on Information Technology and Soft Skills (AICITSS)
FC (Final course)
So, you need to take a step by step approach to all the courses and exams mentioned above. Here’s how you need to go about it.

Step 1: Enrol yourself in the CA Foundation Course after completing XIIth.
Step 2: Complete a 4 month study period and appear in the CA Foundation Examination.
Step 3: Enrol into CA Intermediate Course after clearing CA Foundation Exam.
Step 4: Complete 4 weeks of Integrated Course on Information Technology and Soft skills (ICITSS). This course needs to be completed before your articleship.
Step 5: Complete 8 months study course of CA Intermediate and appear for the exam. There will be 2 groups of exams, you need to pass at least one before moving forward.
Step 6: Join 3-year article training after passing either group of CA Intermediate Exam and complete ICITSS before starting your articleship.
Step 7: Clear the remaining group of CA Intermediate Exam (if there’s any).
Step 8: Enrol yourself for the CA Final Course.
Step 9: Complete 4 weeks of Advanced Integrated Course on Information Technology and Soft skills (AICITSS) in the last two years of your articleship and before appearing for the final exam.
Step 10: Appear for the final exam either after completing your articleship or during the last 6 months of it.
Step 11: Complete your article training, in case you decide to appear for the final exam while serving your articleship.
Step 12: Clear the CA Final Examination.
Step 13: Enrol yourself as a member of the ICAI to be designated as a “Chartered Accountant”.

Direct entry route (after graduation or post-graduation)

To become a chartered accountant after completing your graduation or post-graduation, the path is quite similar to the one mentioned above. But, you can only pursue this path if you have scored at least 55% aggregate in your commerce graduation/post-graduation, or at least 60% if you are not a commerce graduate/post-graduate.

If you are eligible as per your graduation/post-graduation results, then following is a step by step process you need to follow.

Step 1: Enrol into CA Intermediate Course.
Step 2: Complete 4 weeks of Integrated Course on Information Technology and Soft skills (ICITSS). This course needs to be completed before your articleship.
Step 3: Register for 3-year articleship or practical training.
Step 4: Appear for the CA Intermediate Examination after 9 months of your training.
Step 5: Clear both groups of CA Intermediate Examination.
Step 6: Register for CA Final Course.
Step 7: Complete 4 weeks of Advanced Integrated Course on Information Technology and Soft skills (AICITSS) in the last two years of your articleship and before appearing for the final exam.
Step 8: Appear for the final exam either after completing your articleship or in the last 6 months of it.
Step 9: Complete your 3-year training.
Step 10: Clear the CA Final Examination.
Step 11: Enrol yourself as a member of the ICAI to be designated as a “Chartered Accountant”.

Hope it helps...

Prerna’s Answer

hi Lohith,


To become a chartered accountant in India , You need to clear 3 Exams conducted by ICAI . These are CA Foundation , CA IPCC , CA Final.

You can start from grade 11 itself. Take up commerce in 11-12th / PUC and prepare and write your CA Foundation exam while you're still in 12th.

Once, you finish your 12th boards you can start preparing for CA IPCC which had two group of subjects to be cleared. There is also an IT certification to be cleared. it is 40 days course conducted by ICAI. You can appear for both or any group for IPCC at a time.

Once you clear at least one group of IPCC, you can start to look for articleship. ICAI mandates a 3 years of articleship before you apply for CA Finals. Articleship is like internship under a registered CA or CA Firm.

Finally once you finish your articleship and clear CA finals exam , you become a CA .

Geoffrey's answer is great, I would add to look deeper when you are in the process of getting your degree and CPA to decide what field(Tax, Audit, Advisory) you are interested and want to make a career in.

Shraddha’s Answer

It takes the 5 years to complete the CA course. By the year 2006, the ICAI has launched the three level of this course.

CPT (Common Proficiency Test)
IPCC (Integrated Professional Competence Course)
FC (Final Course)

The CPT is the entry-level foundation course involves the quantitative aptitude test, general economics, mercantile laws and accounting.

The IPCC has two groups. It covers the working knowledge of the core subjects. It is specially designed to improve the knowledge of accounting standards.

The CA final course covers the advanced knowledge of financial reporting, management accounting, strategic financial management, professional ethics, information systems control and advanced auditing.
