    Hello friend!
    Yes you can do CA at the age of 30 years. There is no age limit for icwa, cs, or ca.
    >You can apply for these degree after 12th pass. And there is no age limit for age. Whether you cross your age 30 or 40 it doesn't matter. Just do what u want.
    So you can do CA at the age of 30 and above.

    CA has good future and you may take up commerce in 11 and after completing your 12, you can take up CA along with a Bachelor stream such as B.Com.,Also you can take up ICWA or ACS, for ACS exam you have to take up an entrance exam and you have to go to a training center as approved by the ACS Headquarters in Delhi.

    Details of this course is as given below,
    >>common proficiency test(c.p.t)-it is the first exam you will appear,which is the entrance examination of this course.It is a objective type exam in which you have to score 100 marks out of 200.
    >>integrated professional competency course(I.P.C.C)-This is the 2nd phase of this course.you can register for this course after you have passed CPT.It has two groups 1st group has 4 subjects and 3 subjects for the second group.You have to pass the first group to join the compulsory articleship training for three years under a CA with stipend. now you must pass the second group to join the final phase.exams are conducted twice in a year.
    >>final course-after you have passed the ipcc(both groups) you can register for the final course.after you have passed the final course you wii be a registered member of the board ie;a chartered accountant.now you can practice as a chartered accountant in your own firm.

    Good luck!

    Candidates of any age can pursue the CA course. There are no restrictions for the same. You need to apply for the level based on your qualification. If you are a graduate you should apply for the second level of the course i.e. IPCC level. Even if you are a postgraduate you will be exempted from the first level of the course only. Incase you have completed only 12th standard then you need to appear for the first level exam i.e. CPT. If you are a 10th pass out then you can still enroll for the course but you will be able to appear for the exam only after completing 12th standard.

    Hi friend..

    You can enroll for this course with ICAI after your 10th.
    The enrollment fee is about 6,400/-.
    After you enroll with ICAI,the will send you 4 books for CPT and 2 sample papers.

    CA course is divided in three stages:-
    1.CPT(Common Proficiency Test).
    2.IPCC.
    3.Final.

    Yes off course you can pursue chartered accountancy course at the age of 30 years.Actually there is n o prescribed age limit which has been
    specified by the Institute of chartered accountants in this regard.The procedure to pursue chartered accountancy is as follows:
    1)Firstly you have to appear for CPT(Common proficiency test)
    2)After that you would be required to appear for IPCC(Integrated professional competence course)
    3)Thirdly you have to appear for CA final examination.
    But before that you are required to complete three years of training under a chartered accountant.
