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!

Hi Sneha.. BCom is the best course for any person who are willing to apply for CA. Because, a BCom graduate do not have to appear for the Preliminary test  (CPT) and can directly enter into the IPCC or articleship course of CA. Another advantage is to take coaching for CA exam together with the graduation course. So, you can think about joining in institutes like Pondicheri University, Lovely Professional University, Jmi, Delhi University etc in B.Com for a better future in CA. 

Hello Aditya,  You have chosen commerce for a reason go ahead with it. Please note as a commerce graduate banking and finance institutes are open for you.

If you had taken Math as a subject in 12th, you could opt for BCA. Follow it with either a job or a masters degree. Choice is yours. Wish you good luck...
