The first stage or entry level test in a ‘Chartered Accountancy course’ is commonly known as CPT i.e. Common Proficiency Test which is an objective type test consisting of 4 subjects. These four subjects namely Fundamental Accounting, Mercantile Laws, General Economics and Quantitative Aptitude are asked to test the basic knowledge of the candidate in these subjects.
