Should I prefer BA(H)ECONOMICS/BCOM(H) from a topmost college of delhi university or opt for LAW from the top most national law universitie?

I am a commerce with maths student of a reputed school. I am among the toppers of my school. I know if I work for DU I can even clear that. And law from national law universities is a good option as well.. I am currently in 12th.i have taken clat coaching last year. Should I work purely on 12th class or else Clat. Those of my firends who have opted for clat are not focussing on 12th,so also they do not have maths as their optional subject. Please help.

Dear Friend,


Greeting of the day!!!!
Unorganised Sector

Great to know that you are doing well in your studies and have been planning well for your future during class XII itself, let me introcude myself, I am also a commerce student and have done my B.com along with CWA, MBA and FRM. I have been like you topper of my school as well.

Now let me take your question in parts

Degree in Graduation : See it would bestronglyrecommended to decide on the degree based on yourinterest like if your are moreinterestedto do Accounts or you like LAW or economics you can decide on thedegree you would like topursue.

LAW/Commerce : if you want to make your career in LAW you can continue to pursue yourpreparation on CLAT but to fill up DU form and seek out the colleges you are getting would besuggestible.

Future avenues : Always take decision of the your career based on where you want to see your self in next 5-10 years




Now based on the experience i have, it would be my advice to keep focusing on your class XII boards, you canpreparefor any other competitive exams like CLAT but that issecondary, suppose god forbid you could not do well in CLAT and you have not focused in Class XII as well, then you would be left no where.

You being a good student should maintain a good grades and since you have maths as well in your HSC it would provide lot ofcarteroption which would be possible.

Keep preparing for CLAT but ensure you doexceedinglywell in your HSC, because based on your HSC if you are able to get into one of the college like SRCC it would be stronglyrecommended to join such elitecollegesandyou couldconsiderLAW in youpostgraduation.

There aredifferentindividualand all havedifferentproprietiesin life manystudentcould not do well inbothand thus they would want toconcentrateon one of the things but if you want to be ahead of the curve and beat thecompetitionyou should do well in both. so you should ignore such people who are doing CLAT at the cost of their HSC

I hope i was able to address your concern


Wish you all the best Rgds

Hi there,

Firstly interesting career options and Secondly good that you have opted for Math in 12th and thirdly, but the most important is prepare well for your exams. It is the HSC, the most important exam that will help you to choose a career in the future.

Yes. I did say 12th is important. Good and I agree that you are brilliant in academics, but you never know what kind of paper is set in the future. So it is a risk one needs to take. So better would be to work hard and appear and clear 12th wilh flying colours as wel;l as prepare for CLAT. Mind you though, for LAW, CLAT is important, but a portion of their score judgment is also based on the 12th score too.\

Cutting the long story short, the choice of career is purely your choice.
As such after Graduation, you can pursue LAW, but not the other way round.

Now comes the next question, are you interested in economics and statistics and calculations and predictions. That is what economics is all about. If that is where your skill lies, you can go ahead in pursuing a BA / B.SC Economics.


Also Economics and LAW is a good combination. Since LAW is related to applicable of rules and regulations, and economics helps in predictive values, you can predict by knowing the applicable rules and regulations.

Both the subjects are also a good combination or if done individually, can help you with Civil Services too ( IAS,& IFS)

Now the choice is yours.

But best would be to focus on 12th as well as the LAW examination too.
Then ultimately it would be your likes and interests that you can match with your potentials

Wish you all the very best...............
