Dear Student You can write your cs exam at any point of time after registeration before 5 years. If you want to take Ca degree then do Ca articleship and if u want Cs degree then do cs Articleship. Choice is yours. Yes you can do both together and there is no objection practically. But as per Icai guidenlines you have to take permision from ICAI if you are doing CS. Good Luck! `
