I'm new to the CPA Program - where should I start?

Welcome to the CPA! It is a great idea to plan out your CPA Program from the beginning. We recommend that you begin with the required courses (excluding GSL), then move on to the electives, and finally GSL. You should also take subjects that will help you with your future career path.

Amongst core subjects (except GSL), EG is a great introduction to the program and is of moderate level difficulty to help you gauge the effort required for the course. It should be followed by SMA and then FR. These subjects, along with EG, provide a strong base for the remaining subjects.

I am planning to do two subjects this semester, what would be the best combination of subjects I should enroll for?

This depends on many factors such as your available study time, other priorities and commitments in life such as working full-time, and the relevance of the Elective subject to your career aspirations. There is no ideal combination but combining FR and SMA has been the most challenging one for students.
