Journey of a CA Students – CPT to CA 

“It was like some other day after 12th class, when you went to ICAI with your friends or parents to submit/buy your CPT form & then you got your CPT Modules from there & thereafter you start taking baby steps towards your goal.

beginning from CPT Coaching, back to back classes and then exam in two installments.
Most of us cleared in 1-2 attempt, and then we enter to IPCC, where we get to know what all the Income tax, company law etc says.
Managing our own finance from metro fares, tuition fees, canteen bills etc we learn Financial management somehow.
& later on checking the service tax, VAT on bills of restaurants, remind us about tax class’ concepts 😀
Real hurdle starts after clearing IPCC, when we need to join a CA firm which can give us good exposure of work, preparing CV, Giving interviews, trying for top 25 firms, etc etc. It shows us the reality of outside world 🙂
Once we start articleship, then it is like imprisonment for first 3-4 months, after that we get habitual of office, learning new work, new taxes, practical approach of all theoretical things gives us a new direction to proceed.
& the Hardwork starts when we join morning classes, wake up at 4.30 a.m , attend long classes, go to office, Hectic work and then some personal life in evening for 1-2 hours.
It all seems so boring sometimes, we feel down in life, and then we realise, “those who sturggle while practice, don’t bleed in war”, better you give in your training, higher would be you knowledge 🙂
After that exam leaves and this is the time when we give our life’s best and get our degrees later (few clear in single shot, rest gradually)
A very good luck to all my professional colleagues for their bright future with the respected profession 🙂 :)”
