    Can I change my course after 12th and take another course in degree other than what I have studied in 12th?

    I have completed my 12th In Arts subject. As I have heard that there is not so much scope after studying Arts. I have planning to change my subject to commerce in degree.

    Dear aspirants ..there is no obstruction on behalf of the college regarding your changing your sybject.

    You must know when you go to change your art stream to commerce for bright future beside you have seen the commerce subjects they are fully separate you have to pay double time to learn accountancy/commercial arithmatics/geography/auditing/statistics/commercial law/industrial law and many more.

    If you prepared yoursef to do above subjects you can change and get success.

    Thank you,

    Dear Aspirant,

    What you have heard is not correct.

    If you complete your graduation with economics,you will hve very good scope.

    You can go in banking,complete indian economics service,can be an IAS officer or you can get in gazetted post through the state service commission.

    If you are interested in changing the stream,you will have limited option of suject to study in graduation.

    for details,you may refer the criteria for admission in B.Com.

    you will have no bad effect if you get job after your graduation.


    Thanks & good luck.

    hello friend ,
    It is no possible that you chance the your stream after completion of class 12th.
    But you have got Approx. 85-90 % marks in class 12th then you have contact the head of the collage in which you have taking admission.
    you have directly contact with then and told you problem.
    there are so many collage which gives you admission but is it not a legal way.

    The legal way is that you should doing 12th ones again in commerce stream. One year is don't matter for bright future. There are so many student which give one year gap after complete 12th for so many exam like IIT,AIEEE,PMT and many more.
    So don't worry about 1 year gap.

    Hi. You can surely change your subject from Arts to Commerce in degree if you think you have brighter future prospects there and your college will surely allow you to take it.

    The main thing is you should be prepared to work harder in commerce as you know the subjects in commerce are much more difficult than arts stream and they take much more time. If you can manage it successfully then it is the best thing for you.


    I dont think this will hamper your future job prospects. If you pass this degree by getting good marks and come out with flying colours , you will surely get a great job irrespective of what you did in your 12th.


    Hoping this will solve your problem. Best of luck for your future. Thanx )

    Hi,



    --Yup you can Proceed Dude--


    --Actually to Pursue a Degree in Commerce or any other Streams your Intermediate Course should be related to it--


    --If you have learn something related to Commerce/Accountancy/Economics etc,, it will be easy for you to cope up those in your College Degree--


    --Normally for choosing Degree in Commerce or related your Intermediate subjects are important--


    --Just pick out the Department you wish to do with your full Mind Set & Interest--


    --Don't go for/Follow others words as it is your Future--


    --The Consequences of the decision gonna affect personally you not you Advisers--



    ::Think & Act Smartly::



    _)(_Thanks_)(_

    Hi,

    As you did arts group in your 12th std you can take any course other than science and maths.

    AS you would be having commerce in your syllabus,you can go ahead surely.

    You cant go in computer line unless you have an elective in your 12th class.

    So ,don't worry you can definitely go for other course which your really intersted.

    ALL THE VERY BEST!!!

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    You have mentioned you have completed 12th in arts subject

    Then there is no problem in taking up B.com commerce degree in any college

    If you have taken first group like Computer science or biology also its not a prob to take up commerce degree

    only if you studied arts subject in 12th and try to do engineering degree or medical its not possible

    Based on your marks , apply for colleges and general counselling

    TAke up good college that has campus facility

    So that you complete degree with job in hand


    Thanks

    Hello,

    See there is much scope in the feild of arts.

    It is a very wrong conception of thinking.

    You must Decide what you really want to do and what you are interested in doing.

    This will really help you to take decision.

    If you want to pursue your career in commerce then you can change your degree.

    There is no problem in it.

    it also have a good scope .


    Thank you

    Re: Can I change my course after 12th and take another course in degree other than what I have studied in 12th?

    YES, you can change your Stream to Commerce in your Graduation, even if you have studied Arts in Class 12th.
    It will not cause you any problems while searching jobs.

    But please rebember, Commerce is a totally different feild in comparision to Arts.

    So i would suggest that you should have a look at syllabus of B.com and one or two books, and see if you would be able to understand those topics easily.

    Also just rebember , by just doing Graduation even in Commerce , you will not get a good jobs.
    You either need to have some professional degree or sit in the entrance tests for jobs.

    Few Entrance tests where you can sit after completing your Graduation in Any Stream:

    >> BANK PO- max age to apply is 30 years

    >> SSC Combined Graduate Level Exams- Max age to apply is 27 years

    >> UPSC CDS -IMA and OTA max age to apply is 24 years for IMA and 25 years for OTA

    >> UPSC Civil Services Exams- Max age to apply is 30 years

    Re: Can I change my course after 12th and take another course in degree other than what I have studied in 12th?

    Dear Aspirant,

    First of all who said there is no scope of Arts or humanities, if you heard the same then its completely wrong, in fact if you pursue your graduation with any of good subject then you need not have to worry for its scope.
    Few of humanities subject have really good scope, these are -

    * BA in any foreign language (German and spanish are the best)
    * BA in economics
    * BA in statistics
    * BA in English
    * BA in sanskrit .

    Still if you want to shift your stream there is no obligation for that , you can go for commerce , but you cannot go for science or any other technical education which demands 10+2 science stream .
    You can also go for Management, like BBA, BMS, BBM etc.

    All the best.

    It is no attainable that you just likelihood the your stream once completion of sophistication twelfth.
    however you have got got Approx. 85-90 Dame Alicia Markova in school twelfth then you have got contact the pinnacle of the collage during which you have got taking admission.
    you have got directly contact with then and told you downside.
    there are such a lot of collage which provides you admission however is it not a legal approach.

    The legal approach is that you just ought to doing twelfth ones once more in commerce stream. One year is do not matter for bright future. There are several student that provide one year gap once complete twelfth for therefore many examination like IIT,AIEEE,PMT and plenty of additional.
    thus don't fret regarding one year gap.

    You can for certain modification your subject from Arts to Commerce in degree if you think that you have got brighter future prospects there and your school can for certain permit you to require it. the most issue is you must be ready to figure more durable in commerce as you recognize the themes in commerce are way more tough than arts stream and that they take way more time The legal approach is that you just should doing twelfth ones once more in commerce stream. One year is do not matter for bright future. There are several student that provide one year gap once complete twelfth for therefore many examination like IIT,AIEEE,PMT and plenty of additional. each degree have a really smart scope,the issue is you must project that during a right manner .

    if you have passed 12th with arts then unfortunately you can not change your subject in degree programme that is you can't opt commerce.
    you have to opt only arts subject in graduation.
    if you have to do the same then you have to pass 12th once with commerce. there is no any other option so to do so.
    one thing more i want to mention that you are wrong that Arts graduate has no scope.obviously it is less compared to other stream but there is also good scopes.
    you can prepare for general competition and also for UPSC.
    all the best !!!

    Well dear it is possible to change the subjects in your degree course but it does not mean that anyone can take any subject in the graduation.
    As you have done your 12th with art subjects then you can take subjects other than science.as you want to do your graduation with commerce surely you can go in that course,it will enhance your job options.thank you

    Re: Can I change my course after 12th and take another course in degree other than what I have studied in 12th?

    Dear Friend

    Do not go on what you have heard and who has said that arts have very less scope .Yes it is possible to change your stream after 10+2 but you have to do very hard labour in understanding the subjects of the other streams.

    So it would be better if you concentrate on the same stream and pursue your bachelor's degree in arts .

    Along with you should prepare for the Civil services examinations.

    It is the best exam for you to get best and respectable jobs in future.Give your 100 % and you will be able to get good job.

    Hope the information helps and satisfies you .If you have any further query then please leave it here.

    all the best

    Hello,

    No, there is great demand for Arts in the market. If you pursue English(Hons) or Economics(Hons) or
    even Gepgrapgy(Hons) there is very good opportunity in the job market. Shifting from one stream to
    another will solve the problem you have to understand what you like and what you don't like. If you
    like a particular stream then you should continue that stream irrespective of market demand.

    Bye,

    Re: Can I change my course after 12th and take another course in degree other than what I have studied in 12th?

    Dear concern,

    As per query its all depends on your interest area. You can change your subject after 12th but it is your loss because when some one passed 10th class and taking admission in 11th class then in 11th class basic study are studied by any student.

    so in 11th and 12th you have comeplete the basic study and if you will change your subject after 12th then you have to start from basics.

    so its depends on you what you want.

    Regards,
    Mithun sharma
