Abstract: An attempt has been made here to seek the origin of the magnetic white dwarfs in Cataclysmic Variables. Following the suggestion made in the case of isolated white dwarfs, we look at the possibility of binaries with magnetic A type stars known as chemically peculiar stars as progenitors of MCVs. The evolution of the binary is discussed and compared with the available statistics.
