studying in class 12th commerce with maths. I want to pursue CA and b.com side by side. After boards, should I first wait for the board results and du cut off or should I get myself registered for CA foundation? since as per the icai norms, a UG degree student is exempted from giving CA foundation.

Yashu Shrivastava 22nd Jan, 2020

Hey Aashi

I would suggest you to go directly for CA rather than waiting for your result and then do 3 years bachelor's degree.Because if you do CA with side B.com (https://b.com/) ,you can complete it within 5 years but if you do graduation from Delhi University you have to do 3 years graduation and then 3 years for article ship and then 2 stages more.So it will cost you almost 6-7 years.

So i would suggest you to do CA with side B.com (//B.com) .

I Hope This Helps

Best Of Luck!
