Tamil Nadu Class 11 admissions 2020: BCom still top choice of students – Times of India

CHENNAI: The difficulty in getting a BCom seat, still the favourite, in top arts and science colleges has again increased the demand for science stream in Class XI, admissions for which began on Monday. Many schools said the renewed interest in engineering is among the reasons for the increase.

Students can opt for science, commerce, arts and vocational streams, selection of which can play an important role in deciding their careers.

G J Manohar, principal of MCC Higher Secondary School in Chetpet, said the demand for the two streams was almost equal. “Last year, there was a huge demand for commerce among the top scorers. This year, more top scorers also prefer bio-maths stream. Our teachers say science stream has more career options compared to the commerce stream,” he said, adding that the 95% cut-off for BCom in institutions like Loyola and Madras Christian College made it very difficult for students.

V Shanthi, headmistress of Vidyodaya Girls Higher Secondary School in T Nagar, said many had opted for science stream. “The commerce stream is an aided one and there is still very good demand as the fees are very low.” About 140 students got admissions on the first day, she said, adding that they were calling only their students to maintain social distancing norms.

Several government schools said they had begun witnessing an equal demand for commerce and science streams. “The demand for commerce, science and arts stream is more or less the same this year. Some students ask for a commerce stream thinking it would be easier than the science stream. Our teachers give counselling to students about career options before allotting them groups,” said R C Saraswathi, headmistress, Government Girls Higher Secondary School in Ashok Nagar. “We have more than 500 students in Class X. We will give admission to other school students only after giving admission to our students.”

At Presidency Government Girls Higher Secondary School in Egmore, students mainly chose commerce and computer science streams. “More students opted for commerce stream on Day 1. The number of inquiries also increased and we expect 150-200 admissions this year against 87 last year,” said headmistress M M Ramalakshmi.

B Purushothaman, senior principal of Everwin Matriculation Higher Secondary School in Kolathur, said more students were thinking of becoming chartered accountants or going into the civil services and were choosing their streams of education in Class XI accordingly. “They think commerce stream gives them a good platform for these careers. The uncertainty over exam this year has discouraged many toppers.”
