All information about studying CA in Bangladesh.

There are many students who are willing to study CA but don’t know any information about it. Many approached me for enrollment information in CA. So I thought it would be better if I put here for everyone.

Intro:

CA is a professional degree in financial accounting. Here you have to understand the difference between academic and professional degree. Those who complete CA receives ACA degree initially and with time and following requirement, they become FCA. In Bangladesh, ACA degree is offered by Institution of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh (ICAB). There is two parts of CA study which have to be done simultaneously. First part is theoretical part and second part is practical part. In theoretical part, a student have to appear on exams on several papers depending on which level he is in. Under the current syllabus, there are 3 level containing total of 18 subjects. On other part, the practical part, a student have to undergo 2 to 4 years of practice as article student. Years of articleship depends on the academic level completed earlier. ICAB website is referred for details in this context.

Entry Requirement:

Entry requirement in CA is determined by ICAB is published in ICAB website. You can see the requirement in details in the this link (ENTRY REQUIREMENT). Students completing HSC or A level can also enroll in CA.

Starting CA:

A student have to start with practical part. For that, he/she has to join in a CA firm and get registered with ICAB. Registration can be availed after probation period of the firm he/she has joined. Articleship starts from the date of registration. At the time of registration, a student have to enter in a tri-party contract. Three parties are student his/herself, the firm and ICAB.

Study and Exams:

A student can appear on exams of theoretical part after completing 10 months of articleship period. Exams are held two time a year during June and December. A student can sit for exams sessions after completing 10 months of  articleship. There are total 3 level in theoretical part. Knowledge level, Application level and advance level. Knowledge and Application level consist of 7 subject each where advance level has only  4 subjects. A student starts in knowledge level and after passing all 7 subjects of knowledge level they move to application level. It is to be noted that student can’t attend exams from two level in one session. At present student have 10 attempts to complete both knowledge level and  application level. For advance level students will get 6 attempts. Each session of exam is counted as an attempt whether a student appears in the exam or not. If levels are not completed within the mentioned number of attempts, all passes in that level will be nullified and student have to start over from the same level. Students don’t have to pass all 7 or 4 subjects at a time rather they can pass paper by paper.

Costs:

there are no cost when student joins in a CA firm. However, student have to pay taka 30,000 at the time of registration in ICAB. there are no annual subscription fees. Student have to pay exam fee during each session in following manners taka 1300 per subject in knowledge level, taka 3000 per subject in application level and taka 5000 per subject except case study subject in advance level. Exam fee for case study is taka 10,000. Students have to pay for a one time coaching class in each level. Coaching class fee is added with registration fee for.knowledge level. However coaching class fee for application level is taka 15,000 and taka 15,000 for advance level except case study, taka 25,000 for advance stage case study.
In CA, not only students pays but students also get paid. CA firms pays there students allowances per month depending on their firm policy. however this amount can’t be less the amount determined by ICAB. At present ICAB have fixed allowance as tk 3,000 per month for first year student. tk 3,500 per month for second year student, tk 4,000 per month for third year student and tk 4,500 per month for fourth year students.

Achieving Degree:

When a student successfully completes articleship, he achieves CA(CC) title.  CA(CC) means CA course complete. It is earned even if no subject is passed in theoretical part. A student have to complete both practical part and theoretical part in order to pass CA course and achieve ACA degree. ACA means Associate Chartered Accountants and is a person who have successfully passed CA course. When a person become an ACA, he/she may apply for membership in ICAB.

I believe these are the basic information prospective students needs to know of they are interested in studying CA in Bangladesh. If any more information is required, you can leave comment or contact with ICAB for more details.

    1. No you can’t do both CA and a Job. Well at least for first 3 years. Because You have to work in a CA firm or 3 Years as Student. Students with Accounting Major will have some advantage but any major can study CA. CA has its own curriculum. If you can follow it, you will be able to pass.

  2. vaia, I completed my bba from a normal private university but I have a dream for complete ca course with my mba. can i do this?plz tell me a simple process of entry into a ca course….I have to build my career in a strong way…..

    1. If you are studying evening mba, they you can join to any CA firm right now. if you are regulat mba student, you havr to finish mba first. this is because during day time you have to stay at ca firm or at audit client. to study ca, first you have to join in a ca firm and then get registered with ICAB with help from your ca firm.

  3. Assalam alaikum
    Vaia I’ve completed my MBA in AIS. Now I would like to get enroll for CA. I live in sylhet and is there any firm in Sylhet where I can join or should I have to move to Dhaka for that? & another question is what is the procedure to join CA firm, I mean is it like any other hiring or selection procedure (written test & interview)? Please help me with these queries

    1. I am not sure if there is any CA firm in Sylhet. If there is you can join in there. You can live and study CA in Sylhet if you can join in any CA firm in Sylhet. However, you have to enroll either from Dhaka or from Chittagong. You have to attend classes in either of these cities for three months. Also you have to appear exams which will be held in Dhaka or Chittagong. Exam are hold in one week. So for class purpose, you have to visit dhaka for 3 month and for exam purpose you have to visit for 1 week. Apart from these, you can stay and study at sylhet. But only if you can find a CA firm in Sylhet.

    Thank you

    1. Submit your CV to the audit firms. Its just like applying for a job. only exception is that ca firms don’t adcertise an opening. It is better to choose a ca firm and pass your cv through a reference related with that ca firm.

  8. I have 2 question,
    01. How many time will i have to pass in CA firm everyday ?
    02. If i want to get CA degree and want to admit ICAB ? Then what should i do first? Need ca firm recommendation ? Or without any recommendation i will be able to admit ICAB fro getting CA degree?

    1. if you have total of 6 points from ssc, hsc and bba you are eligible to study CA. however required cgpa to join in a firm varies firm to firm. I think if you have cgpa over 3, you will get preference.

        1. Onek firm e internship period kei articleship hishebe dhore. Thesis is not that important for getting into CA. You don’t have to appear on exams for registration. You don’t have to study for that. However you should start studying for the first level. That might help you in the admission test in CA firms.

    1. You may try for MBA or CMA beside your jobs. You will not be able to go for CA if you have a job as you have to work full time in CA firm. From you current position, i think CMA or Chartered secretary would be a good option.

  35. After passing both ssc and hsc from science backgroud with Gpa 5.00 in those two stages now I’m interested to gor for CA with full of dedication.Btw I’m afraid because of my science background.So can u please suggest me will it be possible for me to complete CA course??
    what typ of problem can be faced for it??
    Thanks in advance 🙂

  36. Hello,
    Firstly, thank you so much for the amazing article. It answers almost every question that a prospective CA student has, and clears a lot of confusion.

    However, I have an unanswered question: is there any fixed marking criteria for passing each paper? Or does it depend from session to session?

    1. Reason I haven’t answered to that question because this is not a beginner question. Anyway for your information there is no standard pass mark for CA. It is determined by the difficulty of exam question. However, there is standard practice for all professional institution that if you can score 50% of questions (not 50 marks out of 100) correctly, you are more likely to pass the exam.

  38. Assalamualaicum,
    I have completed my SSC & HSC in 2012 and 2014 respestively with GPA-5 both. Now I’m in department of history in Dhaka university at 1st year. As i’m from business studies background i don’t feel interest in History at all. If i fully concentrate on CA and passed within 4-5 years, how it would be? Without graduation & postgraduation, may i reached in good position only through CA?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Yes you can….but you have to work very hard…..because if you can’t pass CA, your qualification will be just HSC passed. If you don’t like history, i think its better to start CA. Also you can try for ACCA. by doing so, you can do B.Sc and ACCA. Or you can just stick to CA and try harder. If you pass CA, you will get a good job for sure.

      1. Thanks a bunch for previous reply.I appreciate it highly. Through ACCA i can obtain B.Sc in Accountancy from Brookes university,London. Right? I have tried for IBA-BBA this year of JU & selected for viva-voce.But final selection didn’t come to my side.As i also have a dream to study in IBA. Is it possible to apply MBA admission test over this B.Sc certificate ( Brookes university )
        Please help me to decide as i’m thinking about me too late to start my study again.

  39. Brother I’ve completed my ssc and hsc. now I want to study CA. but I’ve come to know that without being a graduate being ACA will not be valued much in job market. is it true??
    I’ll we be so benefited if u let me know that how much better future can I have if I be only ACA without being graduate.

    1. Brother, lets say someone have a home and a car and someone else has only a car. Who is better? the one who have both. Difference comes when you compare with others. If you have more qualification, you will be valued more. If you have less, you will be valued less. If you are a ACA, you will be treated as an ACA. Not as an BBA or MBA holder. If you have both BBA and ACA, your value logically be more than someone who is ACA but without BBA. But your value will be more than anyone who don’t have ACA.

  44. vaia. CA Firm a join korle ki kono monthly salary deoa hoy .
    I found some where that monthly about 20k salary deoa hoy.
    is it tru e
    aktu details janan plz…

  45. After completing CA (CC) course complete ( not ACA) , a candidate what can expect , I mean
    @what post at job market
    @how much salary/income
    @what will be career graph

    And
    What will be better for long term condition for smooth career grouth
    ACA OR CMA OR MBA
    # you have all 3 experience so I think you can help us to choose the distinct path.

    1. with only CC, you can expect post of executive. but with experience, you can be assistant manager or manager. Salary depends on where you apply and how you can sell yourself. Only CC doesn’t add that much value. But it will be valued more than people without any CC. MBA has become an general degree. So go for professional degree like CMA or CA. CA has some restrictions. If you can’t fit in those restrictions, try CMA.

  47. 1. How much is it important to get into a renowned firm rather than to pass the whole programme under any firm?

    2. I’m finishing my graduation with just under CGPA 3.50 or just over it depending on my last
    semester result from AIS dept., DU.
    Is it worthy of getting into a better firm?

    1. Think like passing SSC from a good school rather than form a less renowned school. Outcome is the same. But passing from renowned firm gives you more network and image. Your result is good enough to get into a good firm.

  51. I passed HSC exam 2013 and study BBA….now I want to Attend CA program in ICAB……can I attend this program beside BBA…and I also heard that After complete HSc a student can admit directly…so can I get this this opportunity……please give me you valuable suggestion…….

  52. Vaia,
    Amar SSC result-4:38 from Business Studies and HSC-4:40 from Business Studies. Ami ekhon BBS(Bachelor of Business Studies) pass course er 3rd year a porchi. BBS 1st and 2nd year 1st division chilo. Insha Allah eibar o 1st division asbe. Ami CA porte interested. And 3rd year final exam er por ‘A grade’ er CA firm-e apply korbo vabchi. Ekhon ami ki ‘A Grade’ er firm a apply korte parbo kina r oneke bolche j Masters chara CA er value kom. Asole kotha ta kototuku sotti? Karon ami jodi CA te admission niye thaki tahole toh Masters porar opportunity thakbena. Karon amake toh full time CA firm a kaj korte hobe.

      1. brother , I don’t understand the entry criteria in ICAB website. what is saying they are . please u tell me yes or not

    1. For SSC result you will get 3 point. For HSC you will get 3 point and for Honors, you will get another 2 point. So total is 8 point. ICAB needs 7 points. So you can get admitted to CA.

  53. My ssc gpa is 4.63 and HSC gpa is 4.90.Now I am in 4th yeat. My major subject is Management. I want to get CA from A level firm.Now I want to know how much cost will appear for completing CA course? The firms take subject basis fees. But I don’t know about the total cost of that course. Can you inform me about that please?

    1. First, Firms do not take exams. You have to appear exam organized by ICAB. Your exam fee is based on exam papers. In firm you will get work experience and get some honorarium. Second, Cost will depend of your performance. CA cost is mostly exam fees. So number of time you fail, your cost becomes high. But if you perform well, your total cost would be around 2 lakh.

  54. I have completed my 12th hsc from indian board amd i scored 69%. I did my bcom too from indian university scoring 53%. Am i eligible for doing CA in bangladesh? If so how many years will it take?
    Thank you

    1. You can. But you will need a equivalency certificate from UGC for your Higher Secondary and Undergrad. If you can manage equivalency certificate, you will have 3 years of articleship (training period). Years to complete CA will depend on your motivation and dedication. There is no time bound to complete CA.

  55. my GPA
    SSC 3.75
    HSC 4.80
    BBA 3.50(Banking & Insurance)
    this criteria are eligible to become a CA.
    this is my asked.plz answered me.

        1. when you apply for exam you have to pay fee. If you fail, you have to apply again for your exam. then you have to pay fee. The more you fail, the more is the cost. If you perform well and pass quickly, you have to pay less.

  56. sir, is CA suitable for a girl’s?
    if a girl who just pass HSC want to complete CA then how much time she need to complete CA? and how much money she need to complete CA?
    and what she have to do?

    1. Yeah sadia no question about it. if u can complete it well i think there is a lots of valuation for that.It doesn’t matter boy or girl. Now i am completing ca professional course and learning lots of better thinks that i am learning from my lesson. And i know that it does not expensive. But you have to study loot. you have to maintain a firm where u have to attend and have to give time as job.

  59. Ca univercity ki public institute?naki privet institute?atate vorti hower jonno admission test kivabe dite hobe?

    1. Apply for No Objection Certificate (NOC) from your current firm. Join in a separate firm. Make another articleship contract again but use the NOC to adjust the reminder period of time. Firm you are joining will help you to transfer articalship.

  60. My SSC 3.69 HSC 3.10 I have completed degree 3 years course under national university and achieved second division nowadays I m doing masters on accounting maybe next year it will be finished . Will I get chance to do CA ? if I get this opportunity should I start now or after masters ?

  61. ssc-4.81 & hsc-4.70.I am sudy now BBA 2nd year.How I get point to exam BBA and I admit CA.plz ans….

  62. my deparment accounting (national university).now brother you told me , how I attentive subjects at this time.

    How skill in English(speak&learn).

  63. bhaia amr S.S.C resut GPA.5.00 HSC. GPA.5.00 BBA. CGPA. 3.82 from private university, jodi Ami akhon CA. porte chai tahole total fees approximately koto lagte pare. Is it about to 2lack or more.Ami uporer lekha theke clear noi.plz. bolben ki?

    1. Apu expense of CA study depends on how quickly you pass. if you can pass quickly, total expenses will be less than 2 lakhs. But initially you have to expend around 35 thousands for admission purpose (when you get registered with ICAB).

    1. Pass rate actually accurately bola jabe na because keu keu exam dey 2/1 ta subject pass korar jonno ar keu 7/4 ta pass korar jonno. But what I can say that each year around 50 person passes the final (3rd) level and this number is increasing each year. But this should not be the motivating or demotivating factor for you.What you should consider is the your dedication to be a CA. Path to the CA is not easy one but it is necessary to be a CA.

    1. If you are dedicated to study CA, taking accounting as fourth subject would help you to understand the basic concept of accounting. It will also help you in your BBA/Bachelors degree.

    1. Apply to CA firms for admission. Once you are admitted in a CA firm, you will apply for registration to ICAB. No need to have a cover letter while applying in CA firm. Just drop your CV at Firm or forward it by the reference persons.

    1. Salary is determined how well you can sell yourself. So there is no fixed amount. Salary also increases over time with experience. If you want to be a partner, you have to be a Chartered Accountant first with sufficient knowledge and experience.

    1. You will have huge demand if you can qualify as Chartered Accountant. However, if you can not qualify ass CA but completed 1 or 2 levels, you still will have good demand. But if your can’t pass any level or any subjects, you will not get that much demand. But you still get preference over others who have no articled-ship experience. Amount of salary is determined by how well you can sell yourself.

  80. I am soon complete my BBA (major accounting).I am willing to complete CA. Have any firm in sylhet….Have any help desk in sylhet for clearing concept….How can I admit in Dhaka,,, What is the requirement or qualify after BBA maximum they want….if cgpa…. how much it?

    1. Please Visit ICAB website form firm information and search if there is any firm in Sylhet. I believe there are. But it would be better if you study CA from Dhaka. Accessibility of resources and help will be lot easier.
      There is no help desk of ICAB in sylhet.
      If you want to admit in Dhaka, Apply for articleship in CA firms in Dhaka. If you have passed BBA, your article period will be for 3 years. Your past reults (SSC, HSC & BBA) will be counted as part of entry requirement.

    1. Fees is paid at time time of student registration, at the time of admitting in 2nd and 3rd level, and at the time of exams. exams fee for first level is BDT 1300 per subject, for second level BDT 3000 and for final level BDT 5000. Student can go for jobs only after completing article-ship period. CA hostels are available but it contains limited seat. you have to contact with CA Chatro Porishodh (Student Forum) regarding CA hostel.

  90. If I won’t be able to get CA degree but i complete CC then will i be able to get any top class job??? And another question how much it ll take to get a membership in ICAB after becoming ACA

    1. Depends on how you define top class job. if you have CA(CC) along with part qualification you will be able to get a decent job. It takes only matter of time to become member of ICAB after becoming an ACA.

Now I am still disappointed because I don’t know how can I enter into C.A. But early of my life, I had a willingness to be a C. A. I am now awaiting your perfect and effective direction, Thanks.

    1. If you don’t want to be a CA, then don’t try to join in a CA firm. You will only be looser. If you are dedicated enough to be a Chartered Accountant, only then try for joining in a CA firm. You have to complete your graduation before joining in a CA firm as it is like a full time job.

    2. U mention here that practice may be for 2-4 year? How does it different for student? I mean how it vary??

    Plz help me to know this 2 questions answer, I am interested to join in a firm.

    1. Answer to your first question:
      Leave for 4/5 month depends on your firm. but you might be able to get the leave considering the physical condition.

      Answer for second question:
      Articled period varies depending on student level. For example, for HSC passed students, articled period is 4 years. for graduate students it’s 3 years and for students who already have a professional degree, will have 2 years of articled period.

In the article it is written that students get 10 attempts to pass both Knowledge Level and Application Level. Say I have passed all the subjects of Knowledge Level in 3 attempts. Now do I have only 7 attempts left for passing Application Level? Say I couldn’t pass Application level with those 7 attempts then do I need to pass Knowledge Level again, because I couldn’t pass both levels at 10 attempts?

  121. Thanks for a good post on Chartered accountancy.

    Those who are interested in CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) can try for that because CFA is a US qualification and will less time than CA.

    Moreover; the future is for CFA.
