You have completed 12th standard so you are eligible for journalism course.

Those candidates who have completed 12th standard from a recognized board are eligible for graduation degree in Journalism.

Your age should be above 17 years.

To become a journalist it is very important to pass intermediate firstly with good marks.
You must have distinction as because it will help you more. After that you need to pursue Mass Communication to make future in journalism.

To become a journalist you must have a degree, diploma or post - graduate degree in journalism.
Its not necessary to do diploma or degree in journalism. But being post - graduate in journalism matters the most in India.
However, you can opt any subject in graduation period to pursue post - graduation in journalism.
To pursue graduation in journalism or mass communication you must have passed intermediate from any stream.
