Mathematics not compulsory for commerce

Till last year, most colleges were not accepting students in the honours programme of commerce (BCom hons without mathematics.) Consequently, a large number of students who had pursued commerce without mathematics in their Class 12 were deprived of admission in different colleges.

Therefore, inclusion of mathematics will not be an additional eligibility criteria for admission to bachelor with honours course in commerce.
