The Common Proficiency Test (CPT) and Integrated Professional Competence Course (IPCC) are the two entrance tests that a candidate wishing to pursue chartered accountancy will have to sit for. While the former is specifically for students of class X, the latter is for graduates and candidates with higher degrees.


The preparation for chartered accountancy should begin towards the end of the 10+2 board examinations. Generally, aspiring chartered accountants enroll in coaching centers in the beginning of their graduation years.

Accounting, Taxation and Auditing are some of the subjects which are taught to a student of chartered accountancy.

A Candidate who has passed the 10th examination conducted by an examining body constituted by law in India (or an examination recognized by the Central Government as equivalent thereto) can register for the Common Proficiency Test (CPT) of the CA programme. But they can write the examination only after passing the Senior Secondary Examination (10+2) or waiting for the 10+2 exam results. There are no restrictions with regard to the age of the candidate or marks secured in Senior Secondary Examination.

Commerce graduates with 50% marks, non-commerce graduates with subjects other than Mathematics with an aggregate of 55% marks and non-commerce graduates with Maths with an aggregate of 60% marks are exempted from the Common Proficiency Test (CPT) and are permitted to register for Integrated Professional Competence Course (IPCC).

Candidates who have passed the Final Examination conducted by the Institute of Cost & Works Accountants of India (ICWAI) or the Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) can register for Professional Competency Course.

After passing Integrated Professional Competence Course, the candidates can register as Articled clerks for practical training and for admission to the Final course of the Chartered Accountant. Every graduate above18 years of age is eligible to register as an articled clerk/ Audit Clerks for Chartered Accountancy. Computer Training Programme is compulsory for the candidates who wish to register themselves as auditor clerk. They should under go 100 hours training in Information Technology along with IPCC.
