The Science Versus Commerce Dilemma!


    You have just passed the eighth grade. Now it is time to make one of the most important decisions of your academic life. Which field should you go for, science or commerce.

    It will have an impact on the direction your career takes and therefore it is important that you make a well informed decision. You are not the only one going through this phase. There are several others who face the same dilemma.

    Unfortunately a lot of these students do not have any one who can offer them suggestions. As a result, they end up making a wrong decision.

    Here are some of the things that you might want to know about this particular issue:



    If you end up deciding to go for science, there are two options available to you. These include:

    • Biology
    • Pre-engineering

    For an aspiring doctor, Biology is a must. Similarly pre engineering students need to pay special attention to Mathematics. So if you are someone struggles with Math, you might want to put in extra effort to avoid problems in the future.


    On the flip side is commerce. The subjects you will study in this category include:

    • Business
    • Economics
    • Accountancy

    People who have an interest in establishing careers in various disciplines of business like management and marketing usually opt for this field.

    Can you switch your field

    There are people who opt for either one of the two fields only to later realize that they do not have an aptitude for the field.

    This can be a source of frustration for people. This is also the reason why there are people who opt to go for engineering sometimes also take accounting or economics as an additional subject just to keep their options open.

    However, this is not something that teachers recommend. It is better to choose the right field and stick to it. Switching fields does not leave a positive impression on potential employers when you apply for jobs.

    Seek assistance


    Many kids end up making the wrong decision because they never get the right guidance. Parents can sometimes be ignorant in this regard and often push their kids into fields simply on the basis of its popularity.

    For example, nowadays several parents actively push their children into going for Chartered Accountancy because for them it appears to be the most promising career option from a monetary perspective.

    Even though parents have the best interest of their children in their hearts, forcing kids into a field they have no interest in can result in your child underperforming and getting frustrated.

    Similarly there are several people who feel that science students are smarter than commerce students. Let us assure you that this is not the case. Each discipline has its own share of geniuses. For every Einstein there is a Richard Branson.

    Students, and parents, should also turn towards teachers in order to get advice which can help them make the right choice.

    No matter what choice you make, you will need assistance in order to achieve the desired results. Get in touch with HMS institute. They have professional teachers who have expertise in both Science and Commerce.
