Dear Nitin,

Thanks for approaching us at,

Commerce is a vast field and there are various career options available after 12 to a student with commerce background.If you are good with accounts than Bachelor of Commerce or Bachelor of Finance & Investment Analysis or Banking followed by MBA Finance/ Banking etc will be a good option. If you feel that you have good business acumen and effective communication and leadership skills than an undergraduate course in Business administration followed by MBA Marketing / HR/ Logistics & Supply Chain Management will be great. An integrated five years course in Law can also offer you a bright future , provided you have an aptitude to make a career in law. Likewise, if are a service oriented person than you can explore career options in hospitality , tours & travels etc. Similarly if you are good at expressing your ideas verbally , have an excellent command over various languages , pleasing personality than you may explore career in advertising, journalism, electronic media etc. A career in administrative services can offer you a safe and secure future.

However as we all know that competition tunnel is getting narrow day by day , I would strongly recommend you to undergo psychometric assessment to make an informed career decision & in order to have a happy and successful life. The psychometric assessment involves assessing the aptitude, interest & personality of the student. The assessment can either be taken online or offline. You have an option to take online career assessment on It takes nearly 90 minutes to complete the assessment. After the assessment , team of psychologists and career experts will generate a unique career profile and suggest you an appropriate career path. You will also have an option to get your telephonic career counselling done to put all your career queries to the rest and make a well informed career decision.

Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for approaching us at

I dont feel that not clearing CPT in 5 attempts has closed the doors to CA course for you. Failure happens and should not be taken as the only indicator.

I feel, may be after you complete your graduation in commerce, you should take admission to IPCC of cA course directly. By that time you will become more matured and informed as far as academics is concerned.

To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo a psychometric test from which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which stream is good for you.

Best wishes,
