    my daughter has completed S.S.C. exam, now in KJSomaiya college for commerce. she want to do CA, from when she should enroll for CPT??

  62. SuperProfs Team says

    Dear Dattatray,
    Greetings from SuperProfs.
    In response to your query, CA aspirants can enroll through two Gateways:
    1. After 12th class (admission to CA CPT)
    2. Graduation/final year graduation(For grad students CA-CPT is exempted)
    Grad Aspirants can straight way enroll for CA-IPCC. If aspirant is pursuing graduation
    then direct Direct entry for CA-IPCC makes sense Please read more on Direct entry to CA
    from here:
    Request you to refer “Also Read” section for latest updates.

    Write to us for any query and we will get back to you asap.

    Warm Regards,
