Hi, I am Mohit Malhotra age 28,I have done my 12th in 2002, and didn't get completed my graduation due to some health problems, but in 2008 I have registered for CA course and cleared CPT in 2010 and failed in IPCC in November 2011 and given again attempt of IPCC in November 2012 and not confidence about of my result what it'll be.I have met a known CA of me and he advice me that nowadays CA loses his charm and you should go for part time accounting works as you will earn more than that which you earn after completed your CA.

The whole economy is suffering from depression and inflation whether it's US or India. Everywhere job aspects are reducing than earlier. But as you said your age is 28, you have some other financial responsibilities as well. And in articleship days, you might not be able to earn as much you are currently earning. If you are financially stable then I'd advise you to do CA. Otherwise it won't be a good idea as CA study is still the same vast and need lot of time to practice and concentrate.You can go for ATC which has same course as IPCC group1.And for more stability you can join CWA course which is shares the same repo as CA.And is less time consuming as well.
