Interesting and congratulations too.

This is what we counselors call as " Long term Planning".

What you wish to do is already planned. Great.

CA or chartered accountancy is the head of any organization. They help the company in terms of Accounting issues, checking balance sheets, tally, Budgeting and taxation.
Here you may think that if all this is done by accounts graduate, how come a CA.
But the fact is that the CA goes in depth with his knowledge related to auditing and budgeting.

With his knowledge he helps the organization to budget and be safe on taxes and financial planning and again save or make profits.

Please note that a CA and accountants work hand in hand always.

Since you are opting for a CA in future. Please keep in mind that it is a tough course with some amount of failures. And please be aware of the fact that even the best to best student finds it tough to clear CA at their first attempt. Moreover preparations would require a minimum of 7 to 8 hours of dedicated study
So be mentally prepared to face obstacles during your CA Preparations.

After 10th, you could opt for commerce with Math as a a subject.
Preferably after 12th, ideally you should opt for a B.Com degree, since classes for B.Com are during the early morning and they are mostly theory based subjects, no practicals.
So you get the entire day for CA preparations and classes for the same.
If you opt for self financed courses like BBI or BFA, lectures are spanned throughout the day and they are more practical or project based courses, which involves self learning methods. So most of your time would be utilized in your college and you would hardly get time for CA preparations.

Along with your 12th, you could appear for CPT exam, which is mostly like a preliminary screening, which mainly stresses on basic concepts of the student in relation to accounts. Mostly this is easy to clear.

After this comes the Intermediate exam, or the IPCC level, which you can give along with your Graduation or in your 1st year or 2nd year of Graduation.
Again Intermediate exam involves a lot of hardwork. Students sometimes fail at this level because of over confidence.
Since here the syllabus is somewhat related to your college courses but of course a detailed study is done here.
After clearing this level, comes the industry experience, which earlier spanned for 6 months, but now has increased to a year or 3 years.
Here you need to work under a qualified CA, and get into the necessary integrity of the functioning.

Please note this is the most important part of the entire level of CA.
A good internship will shape up your life completely. So make a good research and then only opt for one person who would expose you to the functioning and will help your learning process.
The intermediate level is divided into Part A and Part B.

Part A was the one I described above.
Part B, you can appear only after your internship for at-least a year is over.
Since Part B is more practical and job related, internship or work experience matter here.

Here comes the last level or CA final.
Though it sounds simple, but majorly students get stuck at Part B.

Please note that this is the point where students quit after few attempts. Since you have the internship or work experience and hardcore functioning of a CA, in short you do work as a CA but aint a qualified one.
But still there are firms that employ you even though you have not cleared the last level.

Please note that you are allowed to function as a full fledged CA, but you are not authorized to sign or declare the company audit as safe.
So here then you need to work under a CA or under a company which sponsors CA to various organizations.

After clearing the Finals, you become a full-fledged CA, who is authorized to do all sorts of dealing and authorization for their clients.
Choice is then yours, whether you wish to work independently or with just one organization.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you all the very best............
