CA Course with regular college !
Is it possible to pursue CA Course with regular college ?
Definitely possible if you know how to balance both the degrees. I don’t think you’ll be studying all the 24 hours in a day either (unless you want to). The only thing worth noting is that CA exams and your bcom exam should not overlap either.
There’s really not that much difficulty with the CA Foundation syllabus, since most of the content is based around 11th and 12th boards. The only thing that you need to focus on once you pass CA Foundation is the law module.
If you find it difficult to work on both the CA Inter groups at a time, it’s better to split your attention. Make sure that you focus on one group at a time. If you take coaching for one group and write only one CA Inter Group at a time. This way you can easily manage both the courses.
If you can spare 6 to 7 hours of time (including coaching) for CA that is sufficient to crack CA foundation and also intermediate ( for 1 group). Remaining time you can do Bcom through regular college.
If you plan your career very flexible, you can do both of these courses successfully. You could for example do CA foundation in the first year degree, inter group 1 with 2nd year and group 2 along with final year degree.
So, by the time you complete your degree , you should be able to complete both the Groups of CA intermediate. Once you complete them, you can do CA final Along with your articleship.
In case if you can’t crack CA foundation or intermediate, you can convert into direct entry and continue with CA along with articleship.
