CA - CPT : Pursuing along with Formal Graduation Courses

  CA - CPT : Pursuing along with Formal Graduation Courses


The CA CPT course is designed for being pursued by the students along with their 10+2 (senior-secondary/intermediate) or higher courses. As such there is no restriction in pursuing the CA CPT (chartered accountancy - common proficiency test) course along with any formal graduation course.

Pursuing subsequent levels of CA with graduation

A student on passing the CA CPT would be taking up the Integrated Professional Competence Course/Exam (IPCC/IPCE), which requires the student to undergo compulsory articleship training with a practicing Chartered Accountant for a three year period.

Such training would commence only after the student has got through group I of the IPCC or the ACT course.

Restriction during Articleship

A student undergoing articleship training is permitted to take up only one additonal course from among the specified courses, during the period of training. Thus, if a student takes up a formal graduation course in an unrelated stream, he/she might face a problem in getting permission for continuing with that course during articleship.

The restriction will be in force only during the period of articleship i.e. the 3 year period of training for IPCC.BACK
