Hello Altaf,

A warm welcome to career guide.com

Thanks for visiting us and writing us your career query.

Its good to hear that you have been planning to go for CA course and make a career in the CA after your B.com. And Congrats for completing your B.com.

CA is the best career option for the Commerce students and hence many students after their commerce plan to make a career in the CA. Students who have an interest in the Accounting and Auditing they can make a good career in the CA field.

In order to make a career in the CA students were needed to register with the ICAI and then were supposed to give a CPT exam. This was the way for the student who has completed a Graudation degree was also supposed to give a CPT exam which consumed a lot of time of the student and so many of the Graduate students they didn't go for the CA option and preferred to make a career in MBA.

But ICAI institute from August 2012 introduced a direct entry scheme for the students who have completed their Graduation or who are going to complete can apply for the CA course through the Direct Entry Scheme. Under this scheme a student who has completed Graduation from Commerce need to have at least 55% marks in the graduation and should have studied any 3 subjects of 100 marks each - Accounting,Auditing,Costing, Taxation, Management Accounting, Business Administration.

Through Direct Entry Scheme student do not need to give a CPT exam and gets directly admitted for the IPCC group.

After taking an admission under the Direct Entry Scheme a student can complete the CA course in 3 to 4 years. Whereas you also consider the 3 years of Internship. If we count together it will take around 5 - 6 years to complete the CA course.

I hope you find this information useful and helpful.

Feel free to get in touch again.

Wish you Good Luck

Thank You

Warm Regards,
