1. Be clear with the goals- you wanna be an accountant or an analyst or just earn another degree- what is your natural/gifted talent- identify by talking to yourself and then choose one at a time...best regards..

I have not cleared IPCC neither Graduation. I want to be a financial Analyst. I think CFA is good.
Since, for the same Bachelor degree is required, I have to pursue graduation first.
I want to pursue Bcom via distance learning so please tell me under which university should I pursue the same so that I can register for CFA level1 and than take the exams, I mean to say whose Bcom is eligible for CFA program.
I am also hearing in the internet that some students are being enrolled in cfa program from the first year of graduation itself.
Please reply soon.
Thanks in advance.

I would recommend you to go to cfa website and register there and check the name of colleges mentioned there.
I have done my bcom from ignou and i have tried contacting everywhere but no one is able to vouch whether this degree is acceptable or not.
So please before you take decision check
1) the university you are trying to do bcom with is it NAAC accredited
2)Check it in CFA registration tab
3)Use WES evaluation tool which will tell you whats your degree worth in US(it should be 4 years equivalent then only you are eligible)
So please take caution because in my case ,this ignou problem is going on since a long time(you can check in forums it dates back since 2009 )and nobody from the university has provided solution for this.
