From School to College

The scope of Economics until standard 12th remains elementary. However, the approach widens a lot at the under-graduation level. The subject now assumes many more characteristics. Classes eleventh and twelfth help in forming the building blocks. While in college, learning goes beyond the theoretical aspects and focuses on understanding the various dimensions of Economics. The subject is taught under various facets including statistics, finance, data analysis, international relations.

Expect a lot of rigorous Economics. Doesn’t sound very pleasant right? Well, not to worry. The course happens to be more demanding and taxing when compared to other courses. However, it is pure fun. If you have a bend, you can’t help but fall in love with the subject over the course of three years. Allow me to bust a myth here. It is a common assumption ” Economics honours will not involve much mathematics.” However, note that the course is deeply intertwined with mathematics. It forms the core in all three years. Thus, it becomes important to be equally proficient at Mathematics as Economics if choosing this course. It tests Mathematics at all levels since the very beginning and thus, requires a certain level of comfort.

The hard work during the three years will surely pay off. The opportunities are immense. One could continue studying in fields including but not limited to economics, statistics, management, actuarial. At the end of three years, the job offers are equally lucrative. A lot of students start working immediately after completing their degree, and thus, this is another option to look at. Not only corporate jobs, but, the government sector as well opens up a number of opportunities. Students prepare for exams for posts at various institutions like Niti Aayog, RBI, Ministry of Corporate Affairs, SEBI to name a few.
