Dear Amit,

You do not have to be worried nor be sad. I feel that, you are just going through a phase of confusion that most of us have gone through at some point of time in our life.

Let me suggest you a few things according to my understanding towards both work and education end-

I always suggest my candidates that - It is very important to have a well balance between education and work experience, However many might have their own thoughts towards this

Work end -

Bcom+ Secretarial Diploma + Computer diploma is a good educational combination I feel, as Comp knowledge is these days needed in all fields and with Bcom and Secretarial knowledge I think you can try for any entry level secretarial/Admin jobs and try to get some work ex before further studies. Now this is only a suggestion from me and may not be the best for you. It must be your call as it would be very difficult, rather very wrong for anyone to suggest you to choose a particular career. It has to be your own true calling and your own interests to understand your right career.

Answer these and you will see that your confusion is completely solved at work/educational end

What are your interests?

Which field would you like to work in and why?

what are your strenghts and weeknesses?

At what kind of work would you feel comfortable and satisfied working for a long period and also like to continue and grow in?

Education End –

Most jobs do not require a great score in your academics, however in knowledge based jobs, your understating of the subject content is important.

For most of the MBA/PG education you need min of 50%(general category) of marks in degree however few colleges enrol candidates at lesser percentages too. You must find out about these colleges online. Moreover you may have to prepare yourself for entrance exams like MAT and others which might be in the months of nov-dec

What are your 10th 12th percentage?

Let me know if I can assist you further

Thanxx for giving me your precious time !!!!
i am interesed in secretarial jobs like secretary,P.A etc and happy to work in any environment and any field having these positions or similar to it.
these days m filling forms of Govt jobs like P.A,stenographer(secretarial practice),data entry operator, clerk in a bank, etc.
my weakness is --- i am very bad at mathematical end not too bad but in equations etc...
and strenght ---- detail oriented, love to get knowledge from any source,really a hard worker.
and i got 68% in my 12th class with science stream
and not a good student of commerce also
but tell me one thing if i have 40% marks in degree with this marks m i eligible for MAT
really thankful for help...........u said get some experience in same field but i think if i spend time in getting experience then my age might be over for studies now m 22 years old.
waiting for your reply !!!!
thanks and regards
Amit Sehgal
