The eligibility criteria to become an 'Actuary' is 10+2 or equivalent or Graduate/ Post Graduate in Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, Computer Science, Engineering, MBA (Finance) and other similar qualifications or fully qualified members of professional bodies such as 'The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India' /The Institute of Cost and Works Accountants of India/ Certified Institute of Financial Analysts of India/ Fellow of Insurance Institute of India. Person needs to be highly proficient in mathematics & statistics. After clearing ACET, you can apply online ( to become a student member of IAI.

I am currently pursuing my XI Commerce. Which would be the best course for me BMS or should I opt for Designing? Is Science compulsory to pursue Designing?

Firstly, you need to understand that there is no best course. What you make of the studies undertaken, decide how successful you become in your career. Management and designing are two different fields requiring a different skill set so first evaluate your skills, interest and then decide.

Designing, which is a four-year course, can be pursued after Class XII from any stream. You will have to clear institute based entrance exam for designing. Management is generally a three-year course and some deemed / private universities might conduct their own entrance exam for their four-year course. It is recommended that you undergo psychometric assessment to know the best option based on your intelligence,  aptitude and personality.
