You should know about your competencies till now, your aptitude level, your inter personal abilities, your strengths, your weaknesses. You should also know how far you can reach and what are your limitations. It is a myth that all limitations can be removed and we can get successful. Everyone is born having some or the other limitation.  You should find out which subjects in academics you love the most and what are those which you wo

Dear Aspirant, You being in the Science stream already I am surprised that you wish to change to Commerce and that too take up a core commerce course like Chartered Accountancy. How did you finalise on Chartered Accountancy course? Why not any other course? I think you are being misguided or you do not have proper information. It appears that you were misguided right at the stage of 10th std, when you should have selected a proper stream based on your interests, aptitude. But, unfortunately that did not happen. Biology was a fantastic subject, but you want to leave that. Eligibility wise

Dear Aspirant, I agree with Ms. Meghna but I have a different view point. Rs 3 lakh package just as a graduate is good and the company is also good with growth opportunities. Do you know that even a normal MBA from a normal Institute gets Rs. 3 lakhs package inspite of being a post graduate. Always remember that in the industry it does not matter. I would strongly recommend you to rethink on this decision to change to banking and finance sector.
