What should I do after PIPFA (CA or ICMA)
I appeared in Final Stage of PIPFA in July 2007 and am seeking advice from the members that what should I do after clearing PIPFA (CA or ICMA).

I have done PIPFA on the basis of B. COM. and have heard that exemption in CA is only available to those who have passed all three levels of PIPFA.

Thanks and regards

Haroon
