Hello there....


Firstly superb choice of career. One of the most sought out career.
But definitely a little tough to pursue the course.
Majorly you would require few traits like:
  • Patience &
  • Consistency
But do note that it is not so easy to carry on with the course. As with each level, the difficulty level increases.

Anyways a great start to the career you have chosen.
In the field of commerce try and major with Accounts as a specialization till you Graduate.
Especially if you could opt for a self financed course known as BFA, Bachelors in Finance and Accounting, would be good or else regular B.Com with Accounts specialization would be very very necessary.

Post graduation, you could either opt for a job or get into further courses or certificates or diploma programs related to accounting.

But most preferably getting into the industry with accounts related job.
The reason is, that for pursuing CFA course, the eligibility criteria is 4 years of relevant work experience.

Since CFA is a specialized courses related to Financial accounts so your knowledge in terms of accounts needs to be minutest.

CFA can be pursued either through an International Institute or through an Indian Institute.
Both have an equal level of difference. Each has 3 levels, which require a minimum 48 hours of relevant work experience.


For the dates and month of the exam, you would have to check the CFA website.
Check the following:

Wish you good luck...............
