Hi, I passed out doing B.Com in 2004, worked from then till now, did my Executive Programme in Global Business Managemnt while working from IIM- Calcutta, now wish to do the CA course. I have had a huge gap with regards to B.Com and accounting. I would need to go through the concepts again. As per the new update in this year, you don't have to appear for the CPT anymore and can directly enrol for the IPCC. I enquired in a Coaching Centre in Bangalore and they advised the coaching will be conducted for 7 months before the IPCC which is held twice a year in May and November and the fee is Rs.28000, classes would be conducted everyday for around 5 hrs. I think it is kind of late for me to prepare for the may exam for next year as the classes have started now and the classes for the Nov exam would start in Feb next year. 1) Please advise after writing IPCC in Nov next year, what is the next step and how long will it take to complete CA.2) Also, since I am working, will it be possible for me to attend classes and study as well as I am out of home working for atleast 12 hrs. 3) What kind of preparation do I need to do before I start the IPCC classes as I have been out of touch with accounts for so many years.4) Which stage is the CA Intern and CA Final?5) What is articleship and does it need to be done full time?6) How many hours of study do I need a day apart from coaching classes?7) Can I do CA with a full time job?8) How many subjects do I need to do in each level?9) If any subject is not cleared, do all the subjects have to be written all over again?10) When do you start vearning a stipend and how much would it be?11) What starting salary can you expect as a fresher CA and when would it increase?Expecting a response to all my questions.Thanks a lot.
