Basic mathematics skills like quantitative aptitude can turn out to be of great help if you ever decide to go into banking or fields that resemble the same. Mathematics is a subject that one will never regret learning since it is very useful in the future. If you are good at mathematics, you will score better in entrance exams like CAT, MAT, XLRI and other such exams.
However, if you are not good at math, you do not have to worry about it. One can definitely study commerce without mathematics. You can choose based on your interest whether you are comfortable or confident about it. You can always do basic math in finance and accounts to keep your practice going. Although it is always recommended that you take math while studying commerce, though it is not compulsory. Despite that, if you are sure that you are not good at it and it might affect your overall score and keep you from getting into good colleges, then you should try not to take that risk. One can practice basic math at home and keep taking quantitative tests that measure your problem solving skills.
Hello,Thanks for Asking..!!Don't worry.. as it is not necessary to take mathematics with commerce stream. Maths is an optional subject in commerce stream. You can select other subject of your interest.
Best of Luck :)
While it is not essential to take up Maths as part of commerce, you should be aware of what your options after Commerce without Maths shall be. If you are looking to study overseas, many universities ask for Maths as a requirement for courses like Accounting, Economics and in some cases even Business & Management. If you are looking to study in India, be aware of whether your 5th subject is going to be counted in the best of 4 required for admissions in India. In many colleges subjects like Physical Education and Home Science might not be counted in the best of 4.
However my advice is that if you don't like Maths and are poor at t, then its best not to take it up. A poor performing subject will end up bringing your overall percentage down.
