how can I become a chartered accountant

Khusji 25th Dec, 2019


It needs complete dedication, hard work, and passion towards this course.

The vast syllabus of Chartered Accountancy is divided into 4 steps –

  1. CA Foundation
  2. CA Intermediate
  3. Articleship Training (3 year)
  4. CA Final

If you are planning to become Chartered Accountant in India through CA Foundation then we are taking an assumption that you have planned to appear in CA Foundation right after 12th.

CA Foundation is an entry-level test in order to pursue Chartered Accountancy. The course is much similar to your 11th and 12th standard (Commerce stream).

CA INTERMEDIATE will be your next level in the Chartered Accountancy journey after clearing CA Foundation. Some students who are graduates or postgraduates can also apply for the CA course through the Direct entry Scheme ( at the Intermediate level.

Candidates can start their Articleship Training ( as soon as they passed any of the group of CA Intermediate. But before that, you must have undergone ITT and OT Program.


This is the last step in the Chartered Accountants Journey and the biggest challenge. After completing both the groups of CA Intermediate one can register for CA Final ( . Although, the candidate can appear in CA Final only when he has undergone through GMCS and Advanced ITT.
