It’s not  a myth and definitely  not a bitter truth as you put it. Forget about Ca’s  for a moment. Just think of it as a normal employer and employee equation. Employer looks for impressive calibre. first attempt pass establishes  impressive   academic performance so such candidates definitely hold an edge so it’s not a myth as such. But to say “only” those candidates will get decent  salary is not a bitter truth at all. Key word here is calibre. Everyone  hiring CA ‘s knows what CA course is all about. If the first attempt  pass candidate comes out as a dud who is only good in passing exams and nothing else then no employer will really  trust such people to perform the complex demands of the job.a candidate  who can explain one ‘s failures in life in an impressive  manner   will have an equal  chance as the genius exam passer.   therefore,  First attempt  pass Ca’s need to back up their achievements  with other job/life skills needed . Just good exam passers will get a start over other dud not so successful  candidates.  But nothing can prevent a capable  person from getting what he or she deserves. Past records don’t matter. What matters is how can a candidate  demonstrate the needed abilities  for the job. Unfortunately GMCS training  is cosmetic and superficial. CA students spend good 3yrs of their life with institute. ICAI  could use the time in a far more engaging manner with the students and train them in all job/life skills needed for real world invoirnment. IRS/IAS officers are very well trained in their  academies for real world.MBA’s schools  also emphasise real world exposure. CA students are unfortunately  left at the mercy of their principal who themselves r not trained to teach as such.

Puja Khemka Answer to This Question !!

I cleared my CA in 3rd attempt!
I did my articleship with PWC n post CA got placed with EY through campus!
After 10 months,  I joined my current company – D E Shaw without any referrals! And yeah this company is one of the best paymasters in India. You may do your research on glass door! It’s on par with Facebook & Google!

So to answer your question. number of attempts doesn’t matter.
Yeah getting all India ranks would give you the best placements but at the end of the day it’s your intellect & commitment that counts!
There is no limit to success if you are adequately focused!
and to be true. nobody really cares about your grades! It’s damn too overrated!
The moral of the story is don’t lose your heart n strive across all hardships!
Best of luck!
Dont forget.together it is always possible!
Thanks so much 🙂
