No. of ipcc/final attempts taken to clear

I will be appearing for ipcc in May 2011.  and i had not cleared 1st time in Nov inspite of lot of hardwork. A failure at this level by trying well, i still ended up short of requirement, make me doubt my capabilities as CA. i know many good students who also take 2-3 attempts to clear inspite of being hard workers. but what i want to know is that failures at exam are indication of being a lesser capable CA in future?? or is it that practical CA life is much different and the time taken to clear exams is not an indication of practical CA aptitute n success? can a student taking 3-4 attempts to clear ipcc, final still manage to be a good CA professionally??
