Are you planning to pursue B.Com? Or do you want to become a CA? Or you want to do both simultaneously?
If you are still not clear about what to do, just relax, you will get an idea soon. Fix your gaze on the screen and let's find the answers to your questions.
Let's start from the basic thing first; you want to pursue your bachelor’s in commerce while preparing for CA. The concerned question here is, Are you willing to be a regular student or want to do your degree from correspondence? Both ways have positive as well as negative points. It's solely on you to do what you prefer.
The more people you ask about it, the more confused you will be.
Firstly, we will discuss about if you choose to go with a correspondence degree what will be positive points.
1) No new knowledge constructed
Whatever you will study in your B.Com honours course, you will have to cover it in preparing for your CA exam. You won’t get many opportunities to learn something new.
2) Degree under the name of university
Once you are done with your finals. You will get the same degree as the regular student will have. No one will ever ask you whether you were a regular student or distant learner.
3) Can give extra time for CA preparations
By being a distant learner you will have more time for preparation. As a regular student one have to go to college, do assignments and so on.
You must be thinking, why someone will choose to go for a regular course? Let me tell you, college life plays a very crucial role in one’s life. You must have someone who has done their studies through a regular medium. Just observe the way they describe their college life. No matter how studious the person is college has a great impact on everyone. College life is another phase in life like childhood or adulthood. Do you want to miss out on something like that? There are so many new things which will be your life lessons.
1) Personality development
Imagine, you went for an interview, you must be aware there is a group discussion round. If you lack confidence, you won’t be able to break the ice. On the other hand, there is someone who was once as shy as you but due to experiences of classroom presentations and group discussion, he became the ice breaker. He will get that edge over you.
You can’t lead your life with the things you just crammed. You have to be more aware of what is going in your surroundings. You will always learn better after experiencing it. And that won’t be possible if you confine yourself within four walls.
2) Add ons in resume
A resume is your first impression on the recruiter. The more achievements you have on your resume the more chances you have to get selected. While pursuing a regular degree you get a lot of other opportunities like being a member of a club or organisation, you can organise events or take part in them and so on.
Don’t you remember your school days when your favourite compliment used to be - he/ she is not only good in academics but also in other curricular activities too. He/She is an all-rounder. If you have that ability to still be all-rounder then you will enjoy the privilege.
