You need no specific qualification for acting if you are extremely talented in acting out different roles!
The great Dilip Kumar, who was a fine method actor and the utmost inspiration for all the other later actors, had opted for no course. And so did greats like Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan and the list goes on and on.
Although it is an added benefit to opt for a course from some drama school or acting institute. It instills in you the confidence and the dedication needed for the struggle to bag a dream role you are looking for.
Your school certificates could well help you in getting admissions to one of the top acting colleges. What these colleges see is the acting skills of a candidate and the dedication he has for enrollment.
