    hey friend

    -chartered accountancy coure requires graduation.

    -graduation like B.COM,BBA,BCA ETC IS ALSO ALLOWED

    -HOWEVER B.COM is the best because the subjects of b.com and CA are similar.


    hope the information helps you'

    best of luck for your career

    Re: What qualifications are required to become a CA?

    CA stands for Chartered Accountancy.

    To become a CA you need to have completed your 12th from a recognized board.

    After completing 12th you will be eligible to apply for CPT exam which is the first stage of CA course.

    You need to clear the CPT exam to appear for IPCC .

    IPCC is the second stage of CA course .

    The another way to apply for IPCC is to completed your Graduation from a recognized univeristy.

    You need to have minimum of 60% in your Graduation.

    If your from Commerce background then you need to have 55%.

    So if your a 12th passed candidate then appear for CPT and clear it and if your a Graduation completed candidate then you can directly appear for IPCC with out CPT.
