  • Hi Vaishali, hope you are doing well. So, when it comes to the pattern of the CA CPT (Common Proficiency Test) examination, here's the scoop as of my last update: 
    The test typically has four subjects:
    1. Fundamentals of Accounting
    2. Mercantile Laws
    3. General Economics
    4. Quantitative Aptitude
    Number of Questions: You'd face 200 multiple-choice questions divided equally among the four subjects. So, that's make it 50 questions per subject.
    Marking: Each correct answer would get you one mark, and 0.25 Marks will be Deducted for each wrong answer. So, attempt as many as you can but smartly!
    Passing Criteria: To pass, you need to score a minimum of 30% in each subject and an aggregate of 50% in all subjects together.
    I hope this clarifies the examination pattern! Remember, it's always a good idea to verify if there have been any recent updates or changes. 😊
