Hello


Thank you for choosing Mera career guide and writing to us. I am sorry to hear that you got upset with one of our counsellor's comments. Please do not mistake over it. I can certainly offer you advice on your query. I can very well understand that you are an MBA aspirant and you have already well thought what you need to do at your Bachelors degree level. Nice to see that you have understood what deems to be necessary on the long run.So lets start like this. What do you want to become in life? What do you want to study in life? I think you are keen in doing an MBA by cracking CAT right? Amazing. Yes, please do everything to get this dream come true.

Coming to your first question, an MBA is good for Science student? Yes, an MBA is actually good for any student with any subject background. An MBA is only required when someone works at a company for at least 2-3 years and are aspiring for promotions or managerial positions. Apart from this some students also prefer to have an MBA because this degree can also offer a hike in their annual pay. Therefore, an MBA could be studied by any student, whether it is Science, Computer science or commerce groups.

On to your next question, can a Science student do BCom? Yes, a Science student can definitely do BCom. Almost 50% of the colleges in India doesn't demand that BCom aspirants should be compulsorily from commerce group. Students from Science, computer science can also do BCom. Doing a BCom will actually put you on the management and commerce pathway and if you are not happy to study science any more then you can very well opt for BCom. I would also like to advice you on the BBA course. BBA course is a 100% management course without any commerce concentration. Studying a BBA is more ideal than a BCom, if you are aspiring to do MBA in future.

Finally, can you crack CAT? Why not? Absolutely yes. There is a simple tip that I can give you to crack CAT with a very top score. Start preparing yourself on CAT materials on your own in the first and second year of your college days. Get an admission at a CAT coaching centre during your final year of college degree. Spend at least 6 months to one year at the coaching class and work on as many as past question papers. The more you practice the more you will feel confident in attempting CAT exam. Remember the proverb? Practice makes perfect.

Although generally it is advisable for people to gain at least a few years of work experience and then take an MBA, there are students who prefer to do a management degree as soon as they complete their first degree. In such cases I would advice you to consider the PGPM - Post graduate program in Management course offered by the IIM'S. These program admission also requires CAT score and they offer you excellent pay upon starting work.

Finally yes, you can do BCom though you are a science student, you can do MBA / PGPM after bachelors and also crack CAT if you can put a lot of effort in being successful at the exam. My best wishes to you.
