While CA is usually the most popular career option to take up after class 12th among commerce students, a lot of students struggle to find the correct pathway through it

But look no further, because we have got you covered. 

Let's understand step by step about the course and its tiers.

So basically, there are three ladders to climb for reaching the golden CA title and in this post we will be discussing about the first ladder - CA Foundation


First the eligibility criteria -

So, are you one of students who plan to await your class 12 results and then enroll in the course?

Let's clear this myth and understand the eligibility criteria for appearing in CA foundation -

You only need to pass your class 10th examination to register for CA Foundation 

But you can appear for the CA Foundation exam only after appearing class 12th.

Next, what are the subjects to be studied -

In the entry level you learn about four subjects -


Wanna have a quick glance at what the subjects have to offer, here you go -

While accountancy drives you through the lanes of partnership accounts once again, it also teaches you the cost and NRV of an inventory.

Final accounts might stick to you even now but even your favorite BRS has a place now.

Law is a totally new subject, but it might turn out to be your favorite project. From the intricacies of a contract to companies and LLP Act, teaching you ways of negotiations, to making you learn the provisions, it might be a roller coaster ride but surely once learnt, you will beam with pride.

Quantitative aptitude can be a nightmare for some as integration and differentiation are back without any fun.

But leaving apart that boring portion, you will also learn to decode series and calculate simple and compound interest as quick as a breeze.

And here we come at the end where we meet economics and let me tell you not just production and cost, but also national income, demand and supply will come as your soft spot.

Okay done, learnt about the subjects but what about the paper pattern?


Now that seems easy but what is the minimum passing criteria?

Scoring 40 in each subject and 200 in aggregate will make you eligible to enter CA intermediate. 

Basically, you need to obtain 40% in each subject and 50% in aggregate to get that PASS remark.

Yes, now that you are elated to give the exam, let us tell you when you can appear for the same -

Options of 3 exam terms are available. 

  • September 
  • January 
  • May / June

and you can appear for the exam as per your wish and when you feel you are prepared.

Hope this helps.

Wishing you a great career ahead.
