I am doing XII Commerce without Maths. Please guide about career scopes for me.

I am a class XII student of a reputed public school of Delhi. I have opted for commerce without maths, with informative practices as an elective subject. I am interested in doing MBA. I have a few queries, like what type of course would suit me after class XII? Will I be able to get admission to a good college if I don’t have maths? Will I be able to do an honours course from DU? Please suggest the right course since I do not want to do a pass course. Also, I am not interested in doing B.Com Pass/B.Com Hons. Will English (Hons.) be good enough for graduation?

As it is, you have limited your options by not taking up maths. Then, you rule out B.Com (Hons.) and pass course. Admission to a good honours course is not a cakewalk and you should not eliminate any option. Non-maths students have one per cent deducted in the admission procedure. Yes, English is a good option if you are open to doing a liberal arts course. Also, it will not be a handicap in your preparation for MBA entrance exam. Even as a non-maths, liberal arts students, you can prepare for that exam as the level of difficulty to date has been of class IX-X syllabus.

Commerce without Maths


I have just appeared for my class X exams. I want to take up commerce when the school allots subjects to us. But I want to take economics instead of maths. Is it the right thing to do?


Most students opting for commerce study both maths and economics because career prospects get better with this combination. If you want to pursue a career in the software sector, we suggest you take up maths with commerce, as maths is a prerequisite for appearing for entrance tests like BIT, BCA (both after XII) or MCA (after graduation) of a reputed colleges. The entrance exams to these courses have questions of the level of higher secondary maths. If you are not keen to do maths, you can join a professional course at NIIT or Aptech. But comparatively, the job prospects then may not be as bright. However, if you are bent upon pursuing economics, you should do an MBA degree.

Career opportunities in software are immense as some of the best placements are possible in the software industry. Among the top recruiters are Microsoft, Infosys, Tata Consultancy, etc.
