 Worship science or Listen to your conscience?

If you devoured PCM with all your heart for the last 2 years, this article is not for you. This article is for PCM students who need an assurance that stepping into commerce, leaving science behind after school is not actually the biggest mistake of their life.

“I pursued PCM with Economics from La Martiniere College, Lucknow and then opted to do BBA after that and it was a piece of cake. You only need to work a bit initially on accounting and you are all set. I made that decision because I realized that I took PCM just because I was not bad at it and because of the social pressure, I never really enjoyed these subjects. Switching to BBA was the best decision I ever made, I always wanted to be an entrepreneur and BBA was the best start I could have had.”
