Dear Aspirant, As already mentioned by other experts about the eligibility criteria, I would like to make you aware that in the industry today, just being eligible by qualification is not enough, but you should have the employability aspects in you to get a good job. Qualification is just a ticket to take you to the interview desk, but how and what you perform on the interview desk, is much more important. So CA qualification will not just get you a good job, but skills of a Chartered Accountant will. so dont be behind getting just qualified, become employable. Best wishes!

Dear Aspirant, It appears that you are bogged down by now due to over studies of the banking exams. It is December 2016 that means that you have spent almost 1.5 years in studying for the banking exams and not successful. It is not that every body who appears for the banking exams clears in the first attempt. Therefore if you are really still interested in the banking sector for a long term career, then you should try more by studying smartly. If you wish to leave the banking sector and not sure what to choose, then I would strongly suggest that you take the Ideal Career Test from CareerGuide.

Hello Siddharth,  Interesting question. And it is always better to know what will be ones benefit on certain investments.  Please note, graduating from a top B-school is an investment in itself.

Dear Aspirant, If you wish to work in Social sector, you will get jobs and work in NGOs, etc. For Social Work, not always academic qualifications are necessary.
