The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has been organizing several examinations since the year 1949 to access the students’ eligibility to become a certified Chartered Accountant. The CA course has been designed in such a manner that students can undergo practical training along with the regular course material. As per the records, it is obvious that the CA course is one of the most toughest course, which is much more clear when it comes down to the pass percentage. On an average, only 3-8% students could manage to qualify the whole examination process. The latest results of CA (Final) exam indicate the same which witnessed a mere 5.75 overall pass percentage. A total of 42,469 students appeared for the CA Final exam (both group I & II) which were conducted in November last year and only 2,440 were announced qualified.
