Complements your university degree (can
appear for exams only after graduation)
At Miles, it's more than just passing the CPA
exam. It's earning your CPA license
80%+ CPAs in India are Miles alumni
Why does CPA have only 4 exams?
This is because US professional qualifications “complement” university education - eg., to be a CPA, CMA or CFA, a university degree is mandatory. They are designed to be pursued alongside a full-time job and to facilitate the career progression for professionals.
The CPA exam gameplan
designed for full-time
CPA exams happen all 365 days a year - so you choose your dates. Also, the rule is from the date you pass your first exam, you have 20 months to pass the remaining 3 (this 20-month window is now being increased to 30-months - it’s good but, as a Miles candidate, you won’t need so much time)
You can easily pass all 4 exams in just 20 months (suggested order - FAR, AUD, REG, BAR). And the best part is, you can take one exam at a time.
All you need to do is commit 20 hours to your studies every week. And with videos from Varun, live online classes by top faculty, “kaun banega CPA” styled MCQs and stimulating simulations, you’ll actually enjoy this enriching experience.

US CPA eligibility
We’ve got your back
Remember, US qualifications complement university education.
Therefore, minimum education requirements for US CPA exam and license:
CPA Exam = 120 credits [90 credits under pre-education option]
CPA License = 150 credits
General rule: Every year of university education in India is equivalent to 30
semester credits of US education.
Using 1 year = 30 credits,
- B.Com = 3 years x 30 credits = 90 credits
- B.Com + M.Com/MBA = 90 credits + 60 credits = 150 credits
- B.Com + CA/CS/CWA = 90 credits + 60 credits = 150 credits
- CA/CS/CWA recognized by a few states as 2-3 years of US education
