Most of the times in interviews for articleship they don't ask too many questions. They may ask you about your family, why you want to join their firm, how did you come to know about them, which is your field of interest, etc. They may also ask you few provisions of tax and company law and some basics of accounting. Its just that they might ensure your conceptual clarity in some areas

Hi Friend, So far as your question is concerned with regard to the questions that are usually asked in an interview for articleship? Then I would put it as that it depends. In big fours there more then one round of interviews. to start with HR session, where they generally ask u a) about yourself, b) details about family c) why u have chosen that particular firm for articleship? d) in which area u want to make ur future? e) u will practice or go for job? Now, U would agree to this that So far as audit firms are concerned, they would definitely not want a classe 12 passout guy to handle their audit assignments straight forward, They would want the articles to have thorough knowledge in acedemics. So, as far as in technical sessions by big fours and other firms is concerned: the probable questions can be; a) how would vouch and verify a particular transaction b) VAT adjustment. c) Some knowledge about service tax, GST etc. d) Most of the audit firms would appoint articles who have good knowledge in excel - specially vlookup, hlookup, pivot table etc. So they can ask you about it. My suggestion would be get your hands-on on excel before going for the interview. I hope I have been able to resolve your confusion to a certain extent. All the best, Regards

Hello, You are interested in knowing the question that are asked in the interview for the articleship. Question asked in the interview depend upon the CA to CA, it is more or less it will be same. Few question asked are 1) On the taxation knowledge 2) On the expectation of the thing you expect from them 3) They check your dedication level 4) About your family background 5) How you came to know about them and such other question. You can expect only few question of taxation & company law if the firm main focus is Audit.Otherwise overall you will get the same question

Dear User, It depends upon the firm you are going to join, that what type of questions they may ask. But normnally as per my experiences and the experiences shared by friends to i would like to explain as following :- In starting you have to work as follows :- 1. Trial Balance Preparation - In interview normally they dont ask anything about this. 2. TDs Filing - Normally they ask about Tds Sectins and rates applicable. 3. Audit - You will be asked about Auditing how to conduct etc. As you will be sent on audit after a very few days of joining. 4. Law - Normally they ask about PF and ESI etc. Apart from they may ask about family background etc. Regards ! Lokesh Garg !

Dear concerned, The `types of questions asked in a CA articleship interview` mainly includes questions related to your personal background. And the first thing they want to see in you is the confidence. Every company or firm wants to hire someone who is confident enough to handle all coming obstacles in the course of articleship. You are needed to be confident about whatever you say, and try to remain calm. This might be the trick to convince him, that you can be of good use to them in future. There is a quite misconception among students that `types of questions asked in a CA articleship interview` includes questions related to practice of profession. Let me assure you that the interviewers are well aware that you are a fresher and that they will not ask such questions. So you do not need to panic. Of course `types of questions asked in a CA articleship interview` will include questions related to the basic knowledge about your profession as well. These topics are a must revision before you go for an articleship interview:- **Accounting Standards and their Practical Applications** **Auditing Standards** **Tax Laws and it's Provisions** **Recent amendments in Law** **Recent Financial Activity ** So do not panic, do revise basics before going to an interview. Make sure you are confident enough, and if you do not know the answer to any question, do not get afraid. Stay confident, Stay Successful.

Solving of question divided in 4 categories (Accounts, Law, General knowledge, Maths) 2. Techincal round( solving excel questions) 3. Group Discussions 4. Personal Interview Thank You.

It all depends upon the field you are applying for. Apart from the basic question as WHY CA? FAMILY BACKGROUND? The questions relates to the area you are being chosen for. If you are being taken in taxation, you might be asked about recent ammendments in DT or IDT as the case may be. If you are being selected for audit, you might be asked about companies act, 2013. Standards on auditing or accounting standard. IF yo are being selected for Corporate finance, you may be asked about FInancial Management topics.
