    No my dear friend you are not eligible for CA course .
    CA is mainly for the commerce's student .
    As you said that you have completed 12th with arts .
    For CA a candidate should have maths and he should
    be passed 12 pass with good percentage .He should
    have good marks in maths .
    As you know that maths is not a arts subject .
    So my dear friend you can't apply for CA course .
    You can make your career in other field such as
    army , ,airforce ,IAS . BBA , B.A etc .
    Best of luck .

    Yes you are eligible to apply for the course. There are no age limit for this course. Since you have completed 12th standard you need to register for the CPT level first. The fees for the same is Rs 3500/- . On clearing this level you need to register for the IPCC level and after that the final. You will provided training in the areas of financial accounting and taxation. Before joining this stream you need to decide if this the area where you would like to make a career. Since you are not from the commerce side you may need to join a training center to seek guidance in clearing the exams.

    Yes off course you are eligible to pursue Chartered accountancy course even if you have completed your higher secondary from arts
    stream.The institute has kept no restriction as far as the stream from which the candidate is concerned.
    But in my opinion and to the best of my knowledge as you from arts background you should firstly try to gain at least the basic
    knowledge of accounts and some other subjects related to commerce.

    Apart from that you should join a good coaching institute where you would be able to gain a detailed description of the various concepts and basics.
