Interesting question but pretty weird.


Advantages and disadvantages are very very subjective.
When someone chooses a field that they are mainly interested then it becomes an advantage or else one would have to drag along.

Now it would completely depend on what you wish to see yourself few years from now. Which is the field you are interested in making a career in???

Humanities is a field mainly involved with societal issues and giving it a human touch. It involves more of analytical and comprehensive methodologies to deal with issues in hand. Though it is subjective but mainly a general focus can be derived.
It includes subjects like Sociology, Political Science, Psychology, Social Studies ( Geography + History), Archaeology, Anthropology, languages and so on...

Science is a field which is mainly inventions and creations by using scientific measures only. They are not subjective, they are purely factual based and can be derived through experiments.
They includes subjects like Microbiology, Physics, Anatomy, Medicine, Chemistry, Biotech, Engineering and so on...

Commerce which is a combination of subjective and analytical methods. But mainly it is the use of existing knowledge and formulas to solve issues at hand. It is subjective because people may have different versions of an issue and solving it too. Analytical because, one solution does not fit all, one needs to remember a solution and then mould it as per the issue. Subjects involved includes Financial markets, Accounts, Book keeping, Economics, Math and so on....

Other than the above mentioned fields, there are courses which cannot be categorized under the 3 main headings which are:
  • Mass-Media ( BMM)

  • Management ( BMS / BBA)
  • Designing
  • Architecture
  • Home science
  • HotelManagement
  • Para Military services
Also please note that, Humanities is a field which involves a lot of self analytic skills. One cannot rote learn, one needs to write down what they have understood of the particular concept. This aids in long term as in during the time you are into working field.
Whereas Science and Commerce are fields whereby they are completely rote learning, whereby you need to write word to word or else marks can be cut.

Hope this answers your query.
Please do write back if you have some specific question in mind.

Wish you good luck............

Dear Aspirant,

Choosing any career is supposed to be for benefit. However the important thing which is important for a career aspirant, is to choose a stream based on your capability and interest.

Choosing humanities, commerce or science has its own factors and importance. What benefits you as a career aspirant and which is the stream which would suit you the best needs to be decided by you. Do not every compare streams and decide by comparison.

To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo an online psychometric test from CareerGuide which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which career is ideal for you.
You can then call counsellors to discuss.

Best wishes!
