As the mad dash to avail admissions in colleges begins, students often find themselves in a fix wondering about the variety of options that they can choose from which often creates a mess of confusion.

 Today we tackle one of such questions where we evaluate whether or not pursuing a BBA course is a viable option after completing 12th grade with subjects such as physics, chemistry, and biology (PCB)/ physics, chemistry and math (PCM)?

It’s advised that one should avoid hopping from one stream of study to another since many colleges such as the Delhi University deduct marks from the eligibility merit score if one decides to take up a course contrasting to their subjects in 10+2.

 Yet if the world of corporates interests you immensely then a bachelor degree in business administration may be the right choice for you.

A preview of BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration)

It’s a 3-4 year undergraduate degree which provides fundamental education in business and management principles. The course allows students to pick subjects in a number of combinations with 1-2 compulsory subjects. The subjects included among others are:

  • Accounting
  • Human resource management
  • Business law
  • Business Economics
  • Personnel management and industrial solutions
  • Business Statistics
  • Basics of indirect taxation

The students are given the opportunity to attain mastery in the fields of:

  • Finance
  • Legal studies
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Marketing
  • Banking and insurance

Switching from science to commerce

There is no hard and fast rule which says that only students who had a commerce background in school can opt for a course like BBA. Science students who wish to carve a career in the management and business world are welcome to take up BBA as well.

Apart from encountering a few natural setbacks that come with switching career lanes, students who have studied science in their senior secondary will gradually ease into their new course. Science students aren’t likely to face many difficulties with statistics and operations since their backdrop in science encourages and hones analytical skills.

BBA Admission procedure

In order to get an admission to a course like BBA, candidates need to appear for entrance exams to prove that they possess enough understanding of the concepts and ideas which they are going to study throughout BBA. The entrance test is conducted at national, state or university level by various authorities.

To be qualified for entrance tests, applicants should pass their 10+2 or equivalent senior secondary examinations. The eligibility criteria for entrance exams may differ from one university to another but the average benchmark is that the candidate should have at least50% and above marks in their 10+2.
