I am a student of Chartered Accountancy for the past 3 years completing my articles .My age is 23. I want to become CA at any cost despite the amount of hard work it requires. I could not clear the exam and I am desperate to complete the course. I want to put the next 2 coming years into this course as I can complete it in the next 2 years time. Is my decision a wrong one considering my age factor. Apart from this I am also doing my MBA correspondence from Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies.
Chartered Accountancy is a highly valued professional qualification. Even if you acquire it at the age of 25 years, it would not make much of a difference in your career. Getting a good job in a chartered accountancy or financial consultancy firm would not be a problem. The same is true for the corporate organisations and other management consultancy firms, which generally recruit people around 25 years of age for entry level jobs. For the public sector companies, banks and insurance companies, the upper age limit for entry-level jobs is 28 years. For jobs with the Government of India or State Governments, the upper age limit is 30 years. Moreover, your MBA degree, though by correspondence, will be a good additional qualification for getting a job.
