  1. Hey,
    I am student of 12th PCM, but after 12th i want to persue commerce (assume, BCom Hn:- Strategic Finance from DU). As per my information i need to give CUET. But the confusion is that whether i have to give the major three papers of Science subjects which i am studying in 12th or I need to give exam for the commerce subjects as i have to persue commerce?

    1. Yes, you have to appear in all science subjects in 12th and pass with good marks. After qualifying CUET you can B.Com, CA or any similar course.
