Though commerce is considered as midway between the arts and the science streams, it is one of the best streams because it provides a wide range of career options to the students as well as develops the overall personality of the students as they get to study a wide range of subjects be it be Accounts, Economics, Business Studies or Mathematics.
This is the main pain every commerce student has to go through. Commerce students are being considered mediocre and every student belonging to the science stream makes fun of them thinking themselves to be superior.
Besides students, everyone who comes to know that we belong to commerce background the first question that is being asked is “why have you taken Commerce? Are you not good at studying?”
2. BECOMING CA – THE APPROPRIATE CHOICE
Being a commerce student the first and the foremost career option is becoming a CA. Everyone thinks that if a student has taken commerce, then it is mandatory for him/her to pursue a CA career But this is not the only option; this stream provides you with a plethora of opportunities and you can choose any field according to your interest area.
3. DEBIT: THE RECEIVER, CREDIT: THE GIVER
This is the basic rule of accounting which every commerce student will relate to. Without this basic rule no equation, no question is solved in Accounts. The whole accounting process depends upon this basic rule and every student remembers this rule of accounting time and again.
4. RULER AND PENCIL ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS
Every commerce student has two best friends that are a ruler and a pencil. It is necessary whether to make formats in Accounts to get that one extra mark or making diagrams in Economics to get the question corrected. A commerce student will never be found without these valuables.
5. HIGH CUTOFF ARE UNBEARABLE
The pain that a commerce student has to go through is that of high cut-offs. Admission for commerce students to reputed colleges is usually through cut off which is very high and goes on increasing every year. The students have to fight for that one extra mark to get admission in good colleges and that too if the result declared has some error it becomes more difficult to get admission because till the time the result is corrected the admission to good colleges gets closed.
6. THE ETERNAL STRUGGLE OF MATCHING LEDGERS AND BALANCE SHEET
The big major task for every commerce student is to match the ledgers and balance sheet. While attempting the question, if the balance sheet doesn’t match the whole morale goes down and further, the questions could not be completed.
I hope every commerce student whether studying or have completed his/her class 12th will relate to these fun facts. Commerce is an appropriate stream for those who want to study a wide range of subjects.
