The University Of Delhi is the most sought after institution in India, especially among the commerce and humanities students, as it offers a vast variety of courses for the respective streams.

However, getting into a good college at Delhi University is difficult because of the high cut-offs that the institution is subjected to.

So here are some courses that you can opt for if you don’t meet DU’s high cut-offs.

1. Opting for similar courses at other colleges/universities

The two most preferred courses for commerce students at DU happen to be B.Com (general and honors) BA Economics (general and honors).

So in case you don’t meet the cut-offs for these courses at DU, you can opt for the same courses at other private colleges and universities that admit students through entrance tests or merit.

Always remember, your course is much more valuable than the college where you do it from. Never trade a good college for a course that you don’t want to do.

2. Opting for management courses

Commerce students who are interested in building a career in management and related fields can opt for three-year undergraduate courses that are offered by various institutions.

These courses include Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Bachelor of Business Management (BBM), and Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS).

Delhi University organizes a special entrance test for these management courses which goes by the name of DU-JAT and takes place in the month of June/July.

So you can also appear for this test and get it into some of the most reputed colleges of DU in case you fail to get in through merit.

One can also opt for the Five Year Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) that is offered by IIM Indore.

On completing these undergraduate courses, one can pursue post-graduation with various specializations.

Students can also opt for popular finance courses such as Chartered Accountancy (CA), Cost & Management Accountancy (CMA), and Company Secretaryship (CS).

Global courses such as Financial Risk Management (FRM) and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) are also some interesting and high-paying courses that students can opt for.

4. Opting for a career in law

Commerce students can also opt for a career in law. They can pursue the three-year LLB (Bachelor of Laws) program after completing graduation or opt for the five-year integrated law degrees like BA +LLB, BBA +LLB, or BCom +LLB after class 12th.

Students have to appear for the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) in order to get through a reputed national law university in India.

5. Other Interesting Courses

Apart from the above courses, there are many other options that students can pursue after class 12th.

One such course is journalism which deals with print and electronic media. Other options include hotel management and hospitality, travel and tourism, teaching, fashion designing or fine arts courses.
