My family situations inspired me

Write something about your journey to become a Chartered Accountant, how you started the CA Course, the challenges you faced, the hurdles you have gone through, your articleship experience, etc.
I started the CA course in 2013. I came from MPC background in intermediate initially I had difficulty in accounts and law but later on, it became easy. Later I passed CPT in the first attempt only. In IPCC I faced many difficulties. I skipped my attempt and became lazy and lost interest in studies. At that time I faced my first failure in exams. Then I realized not to give up. I studied sincerely for the next attempt and I cleared both groups at a time. I started articleship in 2016. I learned many things during articleship not only about studies and also about life and the people around me. Due to outstation audits, so many classes were missed. For preparation also I haven't got much time for the final. In that attempt, I got above 200 but in one subject I got failed. Then again for the next attempt, I have only 2 months' time and mentally prepared to give both groups. In this attempt also I got above 400 totally but in one subject got failed. I cleared one group and failed in one group. At this time my frustration got at peaks. I have given the next attempt for group 2 and I passed in that attempt. In all these situations my family is my support even though I failed they gave me the support and encouragement to write exams.
