After completion of class 12, the biggest dilemma for any student lies in the question - 'What NEXT?' One reliable answer to this question can be - 'B.Com'
Commerce is a popular stream among HSC (10+2) students in India. Having studied Commerce in Class XI-XII allows candidates to choose from a multitude of courses at Graduation level, paving the way for a range of career choices. One of the major benefits that Commerce students have over Arts students is that they are eligible for both Commerce and Arts courses. This course selection, be it academic or vocational, at the time of college admissions is crucial. It must be an informed decision taken after having complete understanding of the course one is opting for.
We would like to mention that course options at Graduation level for both these categories are almost the same, difference being that students who have not studied Mathematics in Class XI and XII will have to put in extra effort in the subject in their UG course.
