Commerce stream opens doors that lead to professional courses, which acts like foundations! For example, consider B.Com. (Bachelor of Commerce) course. This 3 years long undergraduate Degree program is like a foundation course. After completing it, one may choose from a wide variety of PG professional courses and specialize in many other fields/areas! This diversity that commerce stream offers is one of the main factors that still attracts many 10th standard students. If you are good with numbers, good at analyzing and dealing with large chunks of data, have a taste in finance and economics, commerce stream will suit you! Changing stream is not something that I’m really fond of. I suggest my readers to take an aptitude test and check whether they are really capable of pursuing commerce stream schooling after secondary education.
