Bas issi umeed me jiye chale jaa rahe hai ki whatever happens is for good only, besides it there is nothing to count upon in life.

A normal quote in mind of every CA student including me. We start CA with lots of passion, and dedication, which remains till intermediate level and then it slowly and gradually diminishes to such an extent that no one is interested in finals.

There are quite lots of factors contributing to this, some of them which I felt are as follows:

1.      The Pressure

One of the biggest de-motivating factor for a CA student is pressure. An oceanic course and trendy single digit results, along with Articleship tenure and simultaneous coaching; recent amendments and uncertainty of examination pattern making it further difficult to handle things. And above all we all know about the word SCALING for which there is never ending debate. But the fact is ICAI has gone mad this attempt, they itself are not certain about what to do.

The direct effect to of such huge results (which is mainly due to their political reasons) is showing on campus placements. The day is not far when a MBA from local college would say to join with him on 1-1.5 lakh p.a.

2.      The expectations

May be not for all but those excluded are surely 3-5%. The second worst nightmare for CA students is the level of expectations. And this all because of huge name and dignity with respect which is attached to the words CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT. Ask any people, if get to know that you are pursuing or is a CA, he/she will surely show some respect to it. But these guys don’t know the level of our sufferings.

Most of the newly passed CA’s are confused whether to join MNC or work independently. Although many wants to work independently but moratorium period of 4-5 years is just unbearable. Again if any student is willing to take such risk, the family enters into scenario, who wants to have earning member too quickly.

Again, as for me also, biggest problem is faced by students having family business going on for long. Sometimes we are forced to join it, sometime we are made free, sometimes, we are informed to do self practice (till then they will fund), and sometimes they order us to go for MNC package.

No one asks what we want in reality. We want to go for self practice; they say that our daily transactional cash flow equals your yearly income. If we want to go for job, they say that who will handle this business. And sometimes they itself asks for going into professional field as big MNC will ruin business in near future.

People expect that now we are CA, we must know EVERYTHING. And the reality only we know. Client come and say save our tax, we don’t want to tax, at the same time they want to give our fees. Their argument is what work we are doing against such a fees. They don’t see the application of mind (which no one can see actually).

3.      The final decision

After all above if anyone becomes a CA, he gets into actual trouble. He/she would certainly thought about the person who said that go for this course, you only have to struggle for 4 years (till we clear). There is nothing like that after doing CA we are free. Reality while pursuing the course, we people are so moulded that nothing in this world looks more troubled. At that time we are masters of handling problems, and tragedies, etc.

Doing CA opens up so many fields in itself which one start is a never ending counting. Every one of us has thoughts to do something but at the same time had a fear that is this right one for me?

Who are We

Our tuitions are our colleges.

Our workplace is our campus

Our clients are our bunks.

Our outstation audits are our college trips.

Our boss is our raggers. 

We live in isolation and simulated world designed especially for man machine in the field of finance.
