Dear Friend,

Greetings of the day!!!.

CA or Chartered Accountancy is one of the respected and rewarding career choice in commerce. CA have one of the most important role in finance domain.

Let me Explain you the time line of a chartered accountancy course to explain you the question which you have asked.
Chartered Accountant
CA course is having three stages and due to this it gets prolonged for any student to complete CA.

Any Student who Register and Pass CPT/CPC (Stage 1) would have to wait for 9 Months at teast to appear for IPCC(Stage2) in IPCC if both the group is cleared then only student can register for FINAL (Stage 3).

Now the most important part for any student is once you clear any one group out of 2 in IPCC you have to start working as a Article under any Practicing CAs or Firm to understand the work of

The GAP between your IPCC and FINAL would be 3 Years atleast.

Thus it is a would take at least 5 years to be a CA, but once you became a CA and pass with Good Rank or Marks in First attempt you would have lot of chances to get into a very good job.

Careers in CA is also quite rewarding but compared to any other course CA is having longer duration of course and thus require lot of hard work.

CAs in the professional growth could end up becoming CFOs, Financial Controller and in some cases CEOs. All would depend on the initiative and responsibilities one takes

There are some good example of CAs running conglomerate like Kumar Mangalam Birla running Aditya Birla Group.

All the best!!
