Social Reputation

The competency of CA exam and nobility of CA profession make it a reputable profession. CA professionals can easily gain respect and trust in family, friends and society.

Facts vs Myths

  1. CA is all About Math
    One of the prevailing misconceptions is that Chartered Accounts is all about math. Though math is an important subject CA is a broader concept that demands a broader skill set which includes expertise in finance, technical abilities and understanding of business and its activities.
  2. CA Profession is only for Commerce Students
    CA profession is only for Commerce Students is a highly common misconception. The truth is that any student of any stream can enroll him/herself for CA. He/She can prepare and qualify all the three levels of the CA program and attain ICAI membership and work as full-time CA in any organization.
  3. Graduation is Prerequisite; only Commerce Students Can Pursue CA
    Another conception is that Graduation is prerequisite to pursue CA course. The truth is one can enroll oneself for the Foundation level examination just after completing 10+2 or equivalent by registering him/herself with ICAI. And after qualifying the foundation level program, aspirants may simultaneously apply for Intermediate level program while pursuing graduation.
  4. CA is an extremely tough course to pursue
    One of the most common myths about the CA course is that it’s extremely tough due to which many are discouraged from pursuing it. However, the truth is that though CA is a tough course; one can crack the CA exams with the right preparation, guidance and hard work.
