Till the 1990s, there was a clear distinction between the professional courses that were open to science students, arts students and commerce students. When a student opted to pursue commerce, it was assumed that they were keen on pursuing either chartered accountancy (CA), cost and works accountancy (CWA) or the company secretarys (CS) course. An arts student clearly did not favour these commerce choices.

In the late 80s, National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) and National Law School of India University (NLSIU) at Bangalore were established. Hotel management started to grow in popularity as a professional course that students pursued after class 12. There was no clear indication of any stream of education that favoured these choices. Looking back, this was probably the time, when the distinction between what science, commerce and arts students could pursue, started to fade.

Yes and a fear that they might do successfully in that career is also a threat
