Ques. Is it better to study B.Com from an average DU college like Shyam Lal, or Sri Aurobindo (Evening), or study for a BBA in IB from Amity University?

● Top Answer By Kiran Chugh on 03 Nov 21

Ans. It’s better to prefer DU regular colleges given the choice. Course-wise, choosing B.Com over BBA is better, unless you are particularly interested in doing BBA. Here are some of the reasons why you should choose DU for your degree. Other colleges charge reasonably higher tuition fees compared to DU, especially for courses like BBA. If you are taking admission to a regular DU college try to engage in different activities. Join societies, clubs, etc. It will help you in the long run. In DU colleges, you will get enough time to do internships for work experiences. This will definitely look better on your CV. If you are a graduate from DU, then you will get certain advantages over Non-DU candidates, in job interviews. If you want to study CA, CS, etc. along with your degree, then it is better to do a B.Com. Since the B.Com syllabus will have more subjects related to CA, CS, CWA, etc. You can also easily prepare for other competitive exams, without your college timing being an issue.  Considering all these factors, doing B.Com from a regular DU college will be better than doing BBA from Amity University. Read more

Ques. How do I score good marks in a B.Com. at the Rajasthan University?

● Top Answer By Mohit Sarohi on 29 Oct 21

Ans. One of my friends studied at Rajasthan University. Let me share some of the things he used to do to prepare for scoring good marks. Though the question pattern has changed, it is necessary to go through the previous year’s question papers. It is quite impossible to read every book thoroughly, that is why learning from the previous year’s question papers will be beneficial. For practicals start practicing from the unit of the book which you find comparatively easier and interesting. Try and pay attention to every lecture being conducted in the classes. For the 20 marks questions, try writing 7-8 pages, as it will fetch you better marks. Make sure you use points instead of paragraphs. Finally, try to remain calm in stressful situations. Confidently answer your questions. While writing, do not repeat the same things over and over, maintain a tidy answer sheet and you will be good to go.Read more
