B.Com (honours) is the most sought-after course in Delhi University and equally elusive too. Offered in 54 colleges, this commerce course opens for admission only at cutoffs higher than 90% in most colleges. And a score not less than 95% should get you a seat on North Campus. The course became almost unreachable last year with Shri Ram College of Commerce announcing 100% cutoff for it. The course also brings with it lucrative career opportunities right after graduation. cutoffs tend to be above 95 percent

Though B.Com (H) is an obvious choice of many commerce students, those from humanities and science streams can also opt for it. However, studying mathematics in Class XII is compulsory to be eligible for the course. Cutoffs for non-commerce students are also higher. For instance, SRCC had announced 96% as the cutoff for commerce students and an unprecedented 100% for others in the first list last year. It did not come out with a second list. Kirori Mal College and Lady Shri Ram College had the highest first cutoffs for B.Com (H) in the university last year at 97%.The colleges closed admissions at 95.25% and 95.75%. Thankfully, cutoffs in some off-campus colleges were more reasonable. The first cutoff at Maharaja Agrasen College, Dyal Singh College, Rajdhani College and Acharya Narendra Dev College were 89% for commerce students. The evening colleges in DU had even lower cutoffs for the course, though not less than 80%.

B.Com (H) switched to the semester mode last year. It is a more specialized course than B.Com and has become more rigorous in content and schedule due to semesters. The course includes 27 papers in six semesters. The course begins with four papers in the first semester business organization and management, financial accountancy, micro-economics and business laws. B.Com (H) curriculum in the semester mode has few more papers on taxation and papers like human resource management and marketing management, which were optional before, have been made compulsory, said Renu Agarwal, associate professor, commerce department, SRCC. The course has at least five lectures and one tutorial every week.

Road Ahead
A commerce graduate is quite in demand in campus placements with students in many colleges fetching an average salary of Rs. 5 lakh. At SRCC, the average salary offer for the last batch was Rs. 10 lakh, with the highest being Rs. 30 lakh. Those who want to study further; chartered accountancy is a popular option. Teachers suggest it is better to do CA after B.Com (H). Agarwal suggested that pursuing CA with B.Com (H) could be a bad idea as the lectures; assignments and regular attendance leave no time to study any other course. Many students prefer taking up managerial positions in finance, taxation, HR and other sectors. B.Com (H) students can also go for MBA, IAS and a lot of other fields. Students can get good placement offers if they have been performing well in academics as well as extra-curricular activities, said Agarwal.
