economics has created a need for competent commerce graduates. Provision of talented and intelligent professionals in these fields is the responsibility of Governmental Institutions, (colleges & Universities). In the process of developing highly qualified , confident , and academically up rated professionals, roll played by commerce colleges and other educational institutions can never be denied. To increase economic strengths of the country and to reduce its weaknesses, it is also necessary to have a better understanding of available environmental opportunities and alarming external threats, and to build competent young professionals to face all such challenges. One of the urgent needs of Government Premier Girls College is how to improve the learning of commerce students especially at degree level. It was observed in the year 2009 and 2010 that students’ performance in examinations has been consistently low, and students’ academic achievement in degree classes is generally poor. Therefore, the problem of low performance of students in the commerce subjects should be given priority attention.
