This is the most chosen stream after 1oth and offers many lucrative career options including medicine and engineering. It is also popular for the fact that it keeps you options open, i.e. a student is allowed to select commerce or arts after pursuing science in 10+2, while commerce and arts students cannot pursue science.
Studying Commerce as a stream can be defined as a study of business activities such as sale and purchase of goods and services from the producer to a buyer. Students are advised to choose this field only if they have an affinity for numbers and are more interested in business and economy.
Most students feel that opting for commerce stream will offer them a broad spectrum of career paths after they wind up with class 12th, that will make them successful and bring them a sense of monetary security. What most students don’t contemplate is that just like science stream, a student also needs to have a definite inclination towards commerce to become successful in it.
Arts stream is very diverse. This fact is evident from the studies involved in this stream. It covers a wide variety of studies such as- visual arts (painting, sculpting, drawing etc), performing arts (music, dance, drama etc), literary arts (languages, literature, philosophy etc), history, law, humanities subjects, geography, political science etc.
