Is the CA and B.Com syllabus the same?

The subjects that you study in both the courses are similar, however, the depth of study differs to a great extent.

In the Bachelor's degree, you will study core commerce subjects of Financial Accounting, Direct Taxation, Cost Accounting, Financial Management, Mercantile and Company Law as well as a few others like IT, Mathematics, Economics, Statistics, Management Theories, etc.

On the other hand, in the CA curriculum, you will primarily study the core commerce subjects of Financial Accounting, Direct Taxation, Cost Accounting, Financial Management, Indirect Taxation, Auditing, Indirect Taxation, Corporate Laws, Information System Auditing, etc.

There is a huge overlap in the subjects studied, but the CA curriculum goes much in depth in comparison to the B. Com syllabus. The difficulty level of the questions tested in the IPCC Level exams of CA will be slightly higher than that of the questions in your bachelor's degree. However, the difficulty level in the CA Final exams is tremendously higher in comparison. The CA syllabus is quite vast and exhaustive too. Being a professional course, it aims at providing expertise in its subjects to the students. The bachelor's degree provides only basic operational knowledge.

Hope this answers your question.
