What to do after CA CPT?

Once your results for CPT Dec 2018 are out, provided you clear exams, it will be time for you to move on to CA-Intermediate. CA-Intermediate was earlier known as CA-IPCC. Under the revised scheme, introduced by ICAI, a lot more than just the name has changed. There is a vast difference in the syllabus and the level of difficulty between CA-IPCC and CA-Intermediate. 

In CA-Intermediate, you will have 8 subjects divided in two Groups. You can either appear for Group 1 and Group 2 together or you can opt for the groups separately. Since the syllabus is both vast and new, our advice to you is to start immediately.

To get started, you can get in touch with our academic experts @ 1800-212-8575.

But wait! What if your worst fears are realized! It won’t happen, of course! But still. What if you fail to crack CA-CPT Dec 2018? It will be heart breaking for sure, but like in all failures in life there will be a lesson to be learned here too.

Get in touch with our CA experts in the number given above. We will work together with you to understand two things: what went wrong and what can you do differently! We are happy to help!
