    “Yes we are receiving number of queries from students who are keen to take admissions in vocation courses. There is a common perception among students that conventional courses cannot land them a job immediately. This has also led to a rush in the vocational field,” said a professor.

    Although science is preferred by many students, commerce too is not far as students have understood the scope of the subject now.

    As many students want to pursue MBA after graduation, commerce also is preferred by most of the students. Among Arts, English, Political Science and Economics remains the best.
