I don't know how to choose my study stream. My friends are going for commerce. I don't know much about commerce but I know that I don't like science and none of my friends are going for arts.
Understand Yourself
Take time to understand the three streams. Read the three articles here: . Find out which one of the three streams of arts, science or commerce do you relate to the most. You know for sure that you don't want science. Now explore commerce and see if you like what the study stream is about. Also explore Arts and see if you will enjoy studying arts. Don't worry about following your friends. Worry about the consequences of an incorrect choice. Life is not much fun when we don't enjoy what we study and do.
Hi Rahul! Trust me, I
Hi Rahul! Trust me, I understand what you're going through. I went through the very same thing when I was in school. Most of my friends decided to join Science and the rest joined Commerce. I hated Physics, Chemistry and Math, so Science was never an option. I ended up choosing Commerce without Math, which didn't really help as I studied Mass communication in college! My advice to you will be, DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR FRIENDS. If you don't like Science, do not go for it. And don't just blindly follow your friends into commerce like I did. Trust me, you will regret it. I know it's a cliche, but follow your interests. Keep in mind that true friends will not leave you just because you are in a different stream. And you will meet a lot of new and like minded people in the stream you choose! If you're interested in Economics, Finance and Management, then go for Commerce. Choose Arts if you're interested in artistic and creative careers such as Journalism, Writing, Performing Arts etc. Don't get influenced by your friends. They never asked you before choosing their stream! To sum up, 'Choose the stream that leads you to your dream'.
