Default Accounting, Auditing, Taxation, Cost accounting and Business & Finance

Respected seniors, I need your suggestions regarding selection of accounting & auditing as an optional one. I have firm background of it but course of accounting & auditing in CSS is quite huge that it covers the course of my background's 5 different subjects (Accounting, Auditing, Taxation, Cost accounting and Business & Finance). Will not it be much time taking to accumulate all in a single bowl? Also let me know about the average scoring trend of it in last years. Another question is to seek your opinions for opting Persian, Punjabi, Public Administration, International Law or Socialolgy. Hoping your best suggestions.

well I am not senior here, but still giving my opinion about your issue being related to this subject.

first of all, very few people opt for this subject, the reason being that it is very technical subject and only those with sound background of it should opt it .
Secondly people say it is highly scoring subject but I have seen the normal marks trend i.e from 80,85 to 140 most of the times.
I personally believe that it can be really high scoring that is why it is among optional subjects of mine .
Moreover, it doesn't matter if it covers 5 different inter related fields, if you have background ,I would advice you to go for it .
I don't know how you are related to this subject, I mean CA,ACCA,MBA etc but I find the syllabus of A&A very easy. Most questions are straightforward. In short if you have had good grip in the past then you must go for it .

and all other subjects mentioned by you too have good scoring trend. I would advice you to consider mercantile law as well as you might have studied it before

Same question i had... It can be high scoring at the same time. A disastrous subject if one goes wrong.. I m confused b/w IR and accounting. Accounts seems familiar being an MBA but wide too.. And IR is helpful but critical and common among 80% aspirants.

I have opted this subject twice, scored extremely good marks in 2015 but my marks fell sharply in 2016 due to change in syllabus and grids and the fact that I prepared it in one day.

I have a very strong CA background, but the effort required to secure good marks in Accounting should not be undertaken lightly, otherwise you will forego an excellent opportunity of securing high marks in this subject.
