Procedure to become a Chartered accountant after 12th :
Step 1: After passing Class 12th, enroll in the CA Foundation Course :
Candidates who have completed the class 12th exams directed by an examination body that has been recognized by the Central Government as being equivalent to that of the class 12th examination established by law in India are eligible to enroll in the CA Foundation Programme.
Following successful completion of the 10+2 Examination (Senior Secondary Examination), a registered student may appear in the CA Foundation Exam once.
If you want to pursue the CA Foundation course after finishing your 12th grade, you must register yourself for CA Foundation registration and study for a minimum of four months before you are ready to fulfil the qualifying requirements.
If you are a graduate or postgraduate then you can directly register at the intermediate level via ICAI CA Direct Entry Scheme.
Step2: Registration for CA Intermediate Or CA Inter:
To be eligible to register for the CA Inter the candidate must pass both the CA Foundation and the 12th grade.
Students can enroll for the CA Intermediate examinations after passing the CA Foundation exams.
The ICAI has developed the Direct Entry Route, which allows students to participate in the CA Intermediate Course without taking the Foundation examinations.
Step3: Articleship :
CA Foundation[ Entry Level], CA Inter, 3 Years Articleship Training, and CA Final are the four levels of the Chartered Accountancy program.
Until now, students had to pass all three levels of the Chartered Accountancy curriculum and complete three years of practical training.
The goal of the ICAI’s three-year practical training program is to prepare CA students to use theoretical knowledge in the real world and to prepare them to enter the corporate sector immediately after graduation.
For this, you must work for three years under the supervision of the trained CA.
Step4: Registration for CA Final Course:
The applicant can apply for ca final exam during the last six months of their three-year articled training period.
Join the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) and declare yourself a “Chartered Accountant.” after clearing the ca final examination.
