Never seek advice from a Chartered Accountant. They are trained to find problems not solutions.

Hi Friends

Mr Rana I do try to guide u exactly..

I m an Associate member of PIPFA. I have been teaching to PIPFA students in a recognized Business school of PIPFA "The Education City"....

Without doing favor. The truth is PIPFA IS A CERTIFICATION COURSE Niether it is degree nor equvalent to Graduation in Pakistan..It can be used as a short cut for CA & ICMAP, CIMA, ACCA for inter completed stuednts..After doing PIPFA no one can guarantee u can get good JOb ..Rightnow there is no full flash market as such for PIPFA candidates..It can only be used as a short cut as i told u earlier..

Further What I suggest to PIFA students Do ur plus PIPFA...If u wanna do ACA or ACMA or any other qualifcation it will provide u strong foundation in ur studies..Let see How

If we compare B.COm & PIPFA qualifed students. The latter will be more sound/confident in knowledge. It is mistake of our education system even though syllabus has revised but still u get the degree but u do not get the knowledge that u need to face any Professinal qualifcation of Pakistan.....

If u take admission in B.Com from supose from january session, I recommend to get admission in PIPFA & Do foudnatin the end of MAy of the same year u would have finished foundation where u have not only covered approx all core B.COm-I papres but u will have professinal growth& knowledge. Then after during OCtober Internedaite papers would have finished ...that covers approx all papers of B.COm-II as well...Doing studies in PIPFA (To cover syllabus also)is better then to go for tuition in any non-profeesional/traditional system of past papers/meigs & meigs/.and any Pakistani books.

Now during nov & part of dec u can manage B.COm papers...& I am sure the period is enough for u to prepare for the papers of B.COm becoz in PIPFA if u have done serious studies u would have learnt all the topics with grip & confidence...then after u may attempt final exams during Bcom -II.........

Definetly it is not so easy but one have to do it for professinal growth ..........let see after pipfa plus B.COM

Exemptins in F_I & II of ICMAP
Exemption in Module A & B of CA & u may choose from C with correspondese
Three papres exempt in ACCA & CIMA

If i summarize..
It is a short cut plus provide u foundation/personal grooming in proffessinoal accountancy.....

One may Put question Why should not go for CA plus
My dear Module A & B i think difficult to clear then PIPFA... it is slightly easy to pass...& it does not waste ur time A & B takes One year with uncertainity while PIPFA takes 1-1/2 yrs with lower risk.....

If some has confident then go directly for CA......its more good way..........
