  • You did your intermediate with the arts group. The next course of action is to join for a degree course. You can do either BA or B Com. You should give preference to B Com. So I suggest you take admission to a degree college and concentrate on your studies. As you have mentioned that you want to have a career in banking, I suggest you concentrate simultaneously on general knowledge and basic mathematics. Some institutes will give coaching for efficiently facing bank examinations. While doing B.Com 2nd year or final year you can go for these coaching classes also. That will make you understand how to face the written test. After completing your degree you can apply for a bank job and definitely, you will be successful if you put your wholehearted concentration on your studies and preparation.
    After completing your degree there are many ways for you to continue your studies. You can go for M.Com, MA, CA, ICWA, B.Ed etc which will get you many ways to earn.
    After intermediate also if you want you can go for teacher training and you can get selected as a primary teacher in government schools.
    While doing degree you can think of some skill-oriented courses related to IT field and those courses will give you very good scope for very good job openings.

  • You have done your intermediate with CEC (Civics, Economics and Commerce) combination and we can assume that these are your areas of liking and you might like to have higher eduction in some of these streams. Of course, that is a general guess we can make but today the career line is very wide and varied and one can take up even new disciplines and lines seeing them more prospective and career oriented. So, let us go one by one the educational career options for you at this point of time.

    Commerce is a very important and promising line for the students who are having interest in the chartered accountancy or financial accounting or financial auditing or related fields. One can go for UG course in commerce and select some area in it like Accounting and Finance, Financial Markets, Financial Accounting, Cosmic Certified Accountant (CCA), Honours in Accountancy etc.

    For those having inclination towards business and management sides UG courses like BBA would be a good idea especially like Hotel Management, Tourism Management, IT, Aviation, Hospitality & Tourism etc. There are some graduation courses which are in the nature of BBA courses but are mentioned under BA degree only. Some of these lines of interest are BA (Hons) Marketing & Advertising Management, Bachelor of Financial and Investment Analysis, Bachelor of Foreign Trade Management (BFT), Bachelor of Hotel Management & Catering Operations etc. and one can consider them also as a viable option.

    With a background of Civics and Economics in intermediate one can also think for doing a UG degree in combinations containing these subjects and then do the graduation but keep the eyes on the administrative services for which one has to be good in general knowledge and should have knowledge of many of the subjects like these and also do more efforts in one of these subjects to choose a special examination paper out of them. So, making an objective of qualifying in some administrative exam of central or state cadre is also a viable option and one has to prepare for it along with the UG course undertaken. Many students choose this path and with hard work attain the competitive goals.

    Another choice is banking jobs and students with commerce and economics subjects can think for this lucrative career line also and prepare for the combined banking examinations for clerk or officer category. These are conducted by IBPS.

    For laborious and hard working students the sky is the only limit as there are a plethora of career options in the business and industry where there is a demand of skilled people. At the same time there are some people who have no interest in going for higher academic qualifications and for them it makes sense to acquire some diploma certificate in some trade like Banking, Equity Arbitrage Trading & Operation, Financial Accounting, Stock Analysis & Portfolio Management etc and apply in the relevant sector mainly in private companies and start making a career. Only thing is one will have to start from a low position but for the hard working individuals there will be a lot of opportunities to rise in those companies.

    For those having an interest in teaching line doing a UG course in choice subjects and then going for B.Ed. would be a good career path. For those who have greater ambitions, doing UG and then PG degree would open a path for lectureship in the colleges or university after getting qualified in the national level NET test. For highly devoted academic students the learning path up to the PhD level is wide open and there are immense research opportunities in these subjects leading to higher positions in specific Govt or private organisations.

    One has to see one's interest areas, ambition level, and commitment to career making and decide the career path accordingly.

    Knowledge is power.

  • It is always convenient and comfortable to pursue a higher study in the subjects or branches directly linked with your current (previous) course. As you have completed intermediate in arts, it is better to take up next course (degree course) in arts/Commerce.

    You have given two hints which help me to shortlist the choices. You have mentioned that you are interested in Bank jobs. You also wanted a course which will help get a job early.

    Considering those two preferences I would suggest you take up B.Com or BBA. If options are available on the subjects choose those with more emphasis on banking, finance etc. Whatever said and done, one has to study well and score good grades and acquire as much knowledge on the subject as possible by referring and learning the subjects beyond the academic syllabus, undertaking useful internship, cultivating good communication skills etc. Such extra skills make it more probable to get a job easily.

    Nowadays a lot many jobs come via campus recruitment. Hence try to get admission in a college of repute. Then, study well to be academically top, develop communication skills and team spirit, possess some practical knowledge by internship etc. Towards the final year additionally make yourselves update about the job opportunities in various related fields-their basic requirements, test patterns etc. and if possible join some coaching centres or even online coaching for passing job relates tests.

    By your final years start scanning the various sites of banks and finance institutions etc to know about their recruitment and career path. Know and equip yourselves to be ready to take up the IBPS tests etc. By that time you will be more aware about the wider opportunities. You may still keep options of further studies and/or job depending on the ground situation and your priorities.

    Please bear in mind work focused, that among equal, the one who has slightly extra knowledge, practical and team spirit, communication ability and positive attitude will stand to score better in an opportunity. Fortunately all these can be cultivated by sincere dedicated focused efforts. Try to do the best in whatever you do, and wherever you are. '

    You've completed your intermediate in CEC. And also you've mentioned that you are interested in banking jobs. My advice for you is to take either B. Com or B. Sc Political Science. If you take B.
