    No subject in UPSC is low scoring or high scoring.It is the efforts of student which pays. UPSC follow a common platform so that student from any subject course can do well.You can see now how new pattern of UPSC has reduced the weightage of optional and more focussed about students aptitude towards administrative services.So if your good means genuine interest in Commerce and Accountancy and studied it in graduation and take it as a optional paper.Otherwise don't take it.
