I’m really confused on whether I should opt for CA or BSc accounting and finance from LUMS.

I’m really confused on whether I should opt for CA or BSc accounting and finance from LUMS.

Query Statement: I’m really confused on whether I should opt for CA or BSc accounting and finance from LUMS. CA is my overall objective but I’ve heard it’s really hard. On the other hand BSc is a safer option and a degree from LUMS will be good for jobs. I want to know that is it advisable for me to first get the degree of BCS and then do CA? Will some modules of CA be exempted? How much time will it take and is this a good option or should I just do CA after my a levels? Or should I get an undergrad degree than go for masters?

Education Level: Intermediate

Skills – Subject Related: No internships. Nothing

Skills – Non Subject Related: None

Interests: Accounting related. I want to have a social life that i will not if i go for CA.

Career Objective: I want to have an exciting job that deals with the accounts and finance of the business.

Counseling (History): Just some thoughts by my parents and family. Nothing that really helps me decides on what to do.

CA and BSC from LUMS both require hard work and dedication and it’s hard to say which one is more demanding. However if successful in either of them you can earn a decent living.

For exemptions etc you can check the icap.org.pk.

I don’t have much knowledge about CA or Accounting, I suggest you some accountant regarding your queries.

If you get the admission in LUMS, then please go for it. You may give CA papers side by side.
