You may start your CA course even after your completion of 10+2 course provided you have the right aptitude to go in for this professional course. You need to clear common profeciancy test to be conducted by the Institute for screening - purpose. But it would be better to have a B.Com degree for the persuance of this qualification since CA course entails your familiarity and sound conception in commerce. In the graduation level, an aspirant is needed to be acquainted with different tools of commerce apart from sound concept in Mathematics. So such learning under the guidance of able professor would eliminate your confusion during your studies. CA examination is itself a very tough examination and the final result of this course is around 2-3 percent suggesting that a thorough clarity of the subject is required.
A graduation degree does open up the avenues for other jobs/ studies as well in the event of one's failure to crack CA examination.
