    Hey there..

    >> The combination you have asked for here,that of a Science subject and an Arts subject, is rather a perfect one and no doubt it is not restricted.

    >> While an Arts subject gives you a upper hand all the Preliminary,Mains and the Interviews,the Science subject will help you score better in lesser words if you show up proper knowledge.
