Hello dear student....

Your question is your answer in itself, after completing your twelve in commerce you can go for both CS and Bcom simultaneously.
CS that is company secretary is a professional course so I would suggest you to enroll for a normal graduation program Bcom along with company secretary course. and after doing CS you even do not need to complete your PG in commerce as CS itself is a professional course and will help you in getting a good job with a good pay package. It is great career option now a days.

You want to know more about CS than Let me explain you as mentioned below:

  • 10+2 pass any stream (art, science and commerce)
  • If you are already a graduate you need to clear the first stage of the company secretary course.

  1. Foundation: this is for six months programme and fees is 3600/-
  2. Executive: this is for nine months programme and fees is 7000/-
  3. Professional: Fees is 7750/-

Admission is open through out the year and exams are conducted twice a year in JUNE and DECEMBER
It can be done from any where in India as it is not a regular course.

You can visit the for further information.
ICSI is Institute of company secretary in India, in this website itself you will find all the details related to CS and the course process. All details about admission , course, exams, fee structure evrything you can get here. So please visit the website once for your reference.

I can say this because one of my friend did same and is working with a top MNC and earning well and is very much satisfied with her job too. At some point of time she was also confused and finally she opted for CS and is very happy with her decision.
So dear student do not worry at all, just go for both, but important is how you are managing both in respect of time, attention, importance etc. You should not fill like climbing in two boats at a time. You have to be little careful, as it is always important to do hard work and give full focus and commitment than only you can succeed.

Apart from this so many other options are also there in commerce line like CA chartered accountant, MBA in Finance master in business administration etc.

Thank you

Hello My Dear Company Secretary Aspirant,

I am glad that you approached the right career platform of for seeking guidance about your career query. I am thank ful to you for the same and I am sure that experts here will be able to guide you appropriately.

I am also happy that you are planning for your career after HSC in Commerce well in advance and this will give you that extra time to think for your future calmly.

In my more than seven years of career counselling experience, I have come across many students who are not sure of what to do after HSC commerce in terms of professional courses, etc. and I always tell them that its very necessary to think and seek advice before deciding on a career option.

Graduation (BCom) very important:

Fromy our question, I get a feeling that you are considering Company Secretaryship course and BCom as substitutes. Please let me tell you my dear aspirant that these two courses are NOT substitutes of each other.

Its very important and vital for any student to complete formal graduation degree which is in your case a commerce gradaute degree from a recognised University in India.

BCom is a very fantastic foudnation level graduate course for building excellent career in commerce. There fore I would like to tell you that you should also concentrate on your BCom degree studies and you can simultaneously pursue the Company Secretaryship course.

Though you may become a company secretary, a graduation degree and that too with good and satisfactory (above 55%) aggregate marks is treated good in the industry and society.

About the Company Secretaryship course:

You have chosen a very good professional course for your career.

After HSC you can take admission to the Company Secretary course by visiting your nearest located Branch office of ICSI. ICSI stands for The Institute of Company Secretaries of India.

Company Secretary is a statutory position in any company (compulsory by law). A Company Secretary is the incharge of all the legal and secretarial compliances of companies and is responsible for its adherance. He is a liasoning officer for the company and also is a link between the stakeholders and shareholders of the company.

He is a person who accompanies the Board of Directors in all their meetings and gets involved in the strategy as well.
