    • Hi,
      The admit cards would be out tentatively in the 1st week of June, 2016. The exact dates are not yet announced.

    • Hi,
      BCom is for students who are interested in accounting and those who like to have a wider choice of subjects for higher studies later viz., Economics, MBA, Industrial Psychology, HR, Export-Import etc.
      BBA / BMS is for students who are focused and determined to make a career in management and take up MBA / Management (Business Administration) related degrees as their higher studies option.
      BBA and BMS are one and the same degrees with different names, depending on your college. So it has the same prospects as BBA, I would suggest you do BBA/BMS if you want to pursue an MBA later as this would help you tremendously in your MBA later. As a degree the value is kind of equal….you wont be preferred only because you did your Bcom or BBA, you will have to pursue either CA/CS/ICWA or MBA, unless of course you are an exceptionally fabulous student, then you will shine in any field 🙂
      Don’t hurry up with your decision, go to a commerce college close by and ask the teachers there, what would be more ideal for the subjects you wish to make a career in. Say if you want to become a CA, I would suggest you go for BCom and if you want to pursue an MBA, it will be helpful to have studied in BMS/BBA.
      Do through research before choosing a field, choose what you think will help you in pursuing your dreams, like if you want to be a Bank employee, doing Bcom would be more beneficial for you, etc.
