Hello My Dear Chartered Accountant Aspirant,

Firstly very glad to see a detailed query from you which explains the exact situation you are undergoing currently. Reading your question, made me really feel sad since I had also appeared for Chartered Accountancy exams ten years back and left it in one attempt since by them my interests were taking me to another field. In my more than seven years of career counselling experience, I have seen many Chartered Accountancy and Company Secretary students lose hope when they feel repeated number of times, however I have also seen students who inspite of failing, keep their positive attitude and patience and clear the exams successfully later in time.

I am thank ful to you for approaching the right career platform of for seeking guidance and advice on your genuine career concern. I am sure that the experts here will be able to guide you appropriately.

Chartered Accountancy course:

I can see from your marks in your SSC, HSC that you are basically a very good student and you understand academics well and scored really well. I would like to first appreciate this.

You got into a bad friends company and you lost your career track. Let me tell you that since you have realised that you were in the bad friends company, this has made your job more better actually. Realising and acting to correct the mistake is the first step towards progress and success my dear aspirant and you have already done it.

Chartered Accountancy is definitely a tough course which requires lot of practice and patience and non-distraction from your goal. If you really feel from your heart that you want to become a Chartered Accountant, then you have that as a strong point in you.

Dont get depressed by your failing. I have seen many students fail for more than five times in one attempt.

What you need to do is be focused and remember your goal thats it which will keep you positive and on the track. Dont cut off your self from the world though. Enjoy too!

I would suggest that appear for one group at a time and study for that with full focus and honesty and without skipping any learning part. Keep practicing.

Dont worry about your growing age. 23 is a very right age and even if you pass your CA by 26 it will not be a problem at all.

All the Best!

Dear Student,

I can understand your curiosity of clearing the CA exam. And its so difficult for one to give the exams again & again. But one need to be optimistic, life is all about facing & overcoming the problem on daily basis. Those who prepare themselves to overcome any problem are success full others remain isolated.

So dear friend please analyse following points through which you should decide whether you want to do CA or not :

1) The career chosen should be of your interest (you should have passion for the same)

2) The career chosen should help you earn enough money to survive (I think CA earnings are quite good)

3) The career chosen by you should add value to your life as well as others.

Please make a timeline of yours (Age-wise) that by this particular age I want to become CA no matter what. And further a Long run goal. That goal will motivate you you to study hard for CA. If you don't have any goal in your life (specially long run goal) then my friend it becomes very difficult to achieve success.

As regard your worry for completing your education early, you can opt for some other related courses of short span , which will boost your confidence that if not CA then other option is open for me.

As regard clearing the CA examination, you need to analyse your mistakes & work on them. Following are the brief points which you should consider while studying:

1) Study from practice manuals of CA institute

2) Study from RTP's

3) Work on your handwriting

4) Make you answer attractive, like highlighting the the key points of the answers, as examiners check the paper in limited time, so ease there task of checking by highlighting key points.

5) Answer point wise

6) Use same pen while practicing which you will use in exam

Hope the above will help you in taking a wise decision for your career.

Hi There,

What else can one ask for, when you are so lucky that you have 2 CA aspirants talking to you and sharing their experiences.

I would definitely not repeat what others have said, but just one thing that CA is a course, mind you, even toppers have been unable to clear in their first attempt.

So do not get disheartened. The more disheartened, the more you would loose hope and the more you will be unable to clear the exam.

I have no clues what are you currently pursuing. If you are a Graduate, then the best option would be to begin work under a CA, this will help you with the concepts and give you a better clarity being on the job.
If still studying, then if you can take help of professors or if you know a CA in your area, try associating with him and get your doubts cleared.

Wish you good luck.............
