i am 35 years old will i can do CA/CS for getting jobs
Dear Professional,Thanks for writing to Career guide.com!!
Firstly, I would like congratulate you on having such zeal and dedication to study. As far as your question is concerned, definitely you can study CA or CS even if you are 35 years. These courses do not have any age limit. However, the procedure is first you need to clear CPT exam ( Common Proficiency Test). After qualifying in this, you need to undergo an Articleship with any practicing CA professional or company. Then you have written exam for final CA which is divided in 2 groups.
If you feel dedicated and confident then you can go ahead with the courses as they are difficult to clear and if attempts do not put your spirit down then I suggest you go ahead with it. As with CS you need to clear 3 levels of subjects with minimum of 50% aggregrate score in all. Then they have Practical field Internships.
All the Best for your study venture!Do write to us again!
Thanks and Regards!

CA- Chartered Accountant-
CA is a professional who handles the acoounts,auditing,taxation,assets and liabilities of the individual client or of the companies. He is completely responsible how to handle the assets and liabilities. In order to apply for this course there the following stages that one needs to follow-1.Register with ICAI institute at your nearby chapter and attempt for CPT exam. A candidate is required to have attempted or completed 12th from any stream.2.After completing CPT you get eligible for IPCC Group 1 and 2 and one has to also undergo for 3 years internship under certified CA and also needs to complete 100 hours IT Training conducted by ICAL institute.3.After cracking both the IPCC group and fulfilling other norm you can give CA final Exam.
