All the good things are tough to obtain in this world; if we ourselves are not determined, everything will look tough in this world. Yes, CA is definitely tough to pass, if you are not coached properly & conceptually. We at LAKSHYA CA CAMPUS make this learning a worthwhile exercise so that your difficulties will be reduced.

As it is said: "The more difficult it is to reach your destination, the more you will remember the journey", hence make a right choice.

We agree with you if you join engineering or medical, you have a fair chance of passing, one thing we should understand here is that engineering and medical are degrees with a specified period of learning, whereas CA is a professional course which you will only pass provided you put in your hard and sincere efforts towards learning the concepts and their usage in the financial world.

CA is not a degree. OK, if you dont pass CA, what then? There are various courses offered in financial domain like ATC (Accounting Technician Course) which you can enroll and get a job-oriented training. Apart from this, you can enroll for a correspondence degree. And we are sure you be industry-ready if you equip yourself with the required skills.
