I firmly believe that Commerce (Accounting, Business Studies and Economics) are far better than the three Sciences (Biology, chemistry and Physics).

Sorry, I quite disagree. But, good luck.

Its a matter of opinion but to survive in the real world only commerce helps.

Hello, I"ll now post my argument.
First the reason why I disagree is actually very connected to my opinion.

Part 1:

We need to mention that Commerce and Science are both connected to mathematics. Next, science explains thing, it can help, it can prevent problems and predict them,... Commerce isnt needed for survival, except in the damn capitalistic system. For instance it isnt as needed in non-market socioeconmical systems and is not even needed in true communism. We need both, but science is better. You can have a scientific-based economy, and not to forget commerce also needs innovation, thats how capitalism makes development. With physics we can know the true story behind nature (from particles all up to space and energy), with biology (the working of the living nature, the ecological systems and even knowing that a spider isnt evil) and with Chemistry (the processes, functions of reactions and its very connected to Pharmacy that improves health-care). Research and innovation do help. Especially in medicine, that today has a big problem with money, has made a big step through and has prevented many diseases. All sciences are connected, with this you can make a better picture of the environment. Science can help you to survive and to live the life easier, better and safer and healthier. Also if we wouldnt (and actually we mostly dont) connect science with commerce, it could end bad. Commerce has a interest only in economy, that has ignored global warming, pollution and many other factors to both us and the environment. Focusing only on commerce , would mean that we never would go to the moon, make space stations, test the project Diana, make satellites... because it would be cancelled for the better of the economy.

But it would make a big impact on development. And automatically our lives.

Part 2:
"Science is the engine of prosperity. Economists have said that a third to a half of U.S. economic growth has resulted from basic research since World War II." Biology is quite needed if you want to know what that thing outside our garden is and how your body works. Chemistry is also a big explainer. For instance when you throw Sodium (Na) into Water (H2O), there will be an exothermic reaction (leading to NaOH and H2)+ lots of energy (in form of heat). And the H2 will react with O2= burning. Physics are the broad descriptions of how the environment works. For instance measuring speed is very useful. How fast is a object moving, if it moved in 60 mins for100km? Yes, its 100km/h. And Chemistry and Biology can be practical, if you know that the industry is using Monosodium glutamate in your food, while knowing what health hazard it is. But its also fun, especially Chemistry.

Part 3: No you dont really need Commerce that much. Your budget and income can be calculated by help of Math. Thats it. You can choose between looking into the graphs of the worth of gold, or you can look about the new discoveries that are going to change our life.
