B.com and CA together?
Varsity puts its foot down

(C)HT Metro Pg-6, 13th June 2012

  IMPOSSIBLE FEAT for many students, B.Com (hons) is plan B   in case they fail to be chartered accountants. But not any   more.DU’ s semester system makes pursuing both courses   together arduous.

New Delhi: Many dream of becoming chartered accountants but keep an honours degree in commerce as a back-up But Delhi University’s new policy will make it impossible for students to do both courses at the same time.

  Making the cut for B.Com (honours) in DU is already one of the   most difficult things in the academic circles currently what with   sought-after colleges such as   Shri Ram  College for Commerce,   Lady Shri Ram College and 96 per cent for admission.

  Similarly a career in chartered accountancy (CA) is one of the most   sought-after in the country, considering the huge number of   students that enroll themselves in this course every year.     However, only a select few make the cut.

  “Students these days want to do multiple things at the same   time.  Everyone is looking for shortcuts. The university new policy   strives   to put a curb on students pursuing both courses at the   same time, keeping in mind the time a students needs to put in for   both;” said a senior DU official.

  “The semester system has made it virtually impossible for students   to pursue both courses together. Earlier, it was possible for a   student to make up for the lost attendance during the course of a   year, but now students just cannot cope with the pressure of the   two courses to gether,” said Poonam Sethi, who teaches at Hindu   College.

  According to teachers and university officials, the move was made to   ensure that only those students who want to pursue B.Com (honours)   seriously take up the course

  But a majority of students still believe that they can pursue both courses   together and in fact take admission in DU under this wrong impression.In   fact, several students who showed up at the open Day sessions conducted   by the university earlier this month were looking to pursue both courses at   the same time, which officials say is going to be very difficult.

  “B.Com (honours) is a highly competitive and difficult course. Also, several   students with brilliant marks are vying for every seat. Students who want to   pursue CA should stick to that,” the university official added.

  Also, the make-up of the classroom will undergo a change in accordance   to the new rules, say teachers.
 “This restriction will improve the complexion of the classroom. Students will   take classes more seriously and will see better results. Earlier, there were   times when the entire classroom would be empty as all students were busy   taking CA exams,” Sethi added.

  Officials say that students who want to pursue the two courses together   can pursue B.Com from the University’s  School of open Learning
