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!

B.Com honors course is better than B.Com general if it is from reputed universities and colleges. So you can apply for B.Com honors in institutes like Lovely Professional University, Amity university, Shradra University etc and can explore the field of commerce.  You can work as Financier, Banker, Accountant etc after completing the course. M.Com or MBA is also a good option for masters so that you can find a number of opportunities in private and public sectors.

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 Jazib,   Interesting that you wish to be a CA.   Before any other talks, first register yourself with ICAI, so that after 12th, you can appear for their first round known as CPT ( Common proficiency test). Here your basics skills are checked in Math and accounts as such.   After CPT, comes the next level called IPCC, which is divided in 2 groups or levels. After clearing one level, you would have to get into computer training and personality training.
