I wish to pursue a career in Design or Architecture. I am confused which path I should take.
You can tread on this route after you complete your class XII.You need to either pursue a B Architecture (5 years) or B Des (4 years). For B Arch admissions, you need to clear the NATA exams (www.nata.in) and then seek admission into a college of your choice all over India. Similarly for B Des, you can write the entrance exams like JEE and the exams at NID-Ahmedabad or MIT Pune. In case you are unable to decide, you may pursue the B Arch and then do your master’s in Design.
What’s the difference between a CA and a CS?
Chartered Accountants enjoy a statutory monopoly in audit of financial statements under the Companies Act, 1956, Income Tax Act, 1961 and such statutes in India.
Hence they hold a position of prestige and importance in every company.

For both, the starting point is to complete class XII in the commerce stream preferably.
