Is BBOSE is valid for CA foundation exam
I hope you are doing well.
The first level exam for chartered accountancy in India is called the CPT, or common proficiency test. You only need to finish two years of higher education, including any diploma courses taken after the tenth grade from a board recognised by the federal or state governments, to be qualified for the CPT exam. If you are in your first year of an online graduating course or have previously received your diploma, you are also eligible.
A board recognised by the government is called the Bihar Board of Open Schooling Examination (BBOSE). Therefore, the CPT examination will be available to all BBOSE students.
I hope this helps.
