Chemistry is the integral branch of science which is the study of matter, its properties and combination, separation and interaction of substances and energy. Chemistry is closely connected with our lives. Soaps, medicines, cosmetics, etc. are the major gifts given by chemistry science. Students who want to study composition, structure and properties of matter can opt for any chemistry course as per their interest. B.Sc. Chemistry and B.Tech chemical engineering are the most popular chemistry courses after class 10+2. These courses comprise the study of various chemicals, production of drugs, food, garments, healthcare products from raw materials. Earning a degree in a chemistry course is mandatory for a student who wants to join laboratories, medical clinics, chemical industry, healthcare product company.
There are various chemistry courses available at UG and PG level which can be pursued after class 12 and graduation. Here, we have provided UG and PG level chemistry courses along with their details.
UG Level Chemistry Courses
B.Sc (Hons), B.Tech in chemical engineering are the most popular chemistry courses at the UG level. Students who have qualified 12th class examination are eligible to apply for them.
This is a four year UG degree programme in engineering for the students who have completed 12th class with PCM. Students who want to have deep exposure to chemicals, oil, gas and other energy resources can opt for this chemistry course. BE in Chemical engineering is also equivalent to this course. Students can also opt for that to pursue chemical engineering.
With a duration of 3 years, B.Sc chemistry course focuses on the fundamentals of physical, inorganic, analytical, green and organic chemistry. Students learn the theoretical and practical knowledge of concepts matched with the needs of the chemical industry and society. Every institute provides lab periods to enable students to do experiments with scientific principles. It provides hands-on experience and helps in better understanding.
Students who want to specialize in chemistry can opt for B.Sc. (Hons) in chemistry, which is a good option to study in detail.
B.Sc chemistry course is offered by various institutes across the country. Admissions are provided based on the entrance exams like LPUNEST while some institutes offer merit-based admissions.
B.Voc. - Chemical Technology
Bachelor of Vocation in Chemical technology is a three-year undergraduate level degree programme. It focuses on skill development which emphasizes more on practical than theoretical knowledge. This course makes students ready to join a chemical-based industry.
PG Level Chemistry Courses
M.Sc, chemistry and M.Tech chemistry are the most prominent career-oriented PG level courses. Students can get to know about them in the following sections:
This PG level chemistry course is opted by the students who have completed their B.Sc. degree with chemistry and mathematics subjects. This is a 2-year course which is divided into four semesters. Each semester comprises around 3 theoretical subjects and 1-3 practical subjects. Apart from this, elective subjects are also offered which can be opted by students as per their own choice.
Institutions hold entrance tests like DUET, JAM to select the eligible students for admission. While some are preparing the cutoff marks list to offer merit-based admission. The cutoff for M.Sc. chemistry in DU can be around 222 marks for unreserved category students.
ME/M.Tech in Chemical Engineering
This is a PG level chemistry course with a duration of two years. After B.Tech/B.E. in chemical engineering, students can choose this course to gain advanced-level knowledge of heat transfer, process control, thermodynamics, mass transfer and other concepts.
Admissions for this course are provided to students as per their score and rank in GATE, WB PGET and other entrance exams. Some institutions also provide admissions as per student’s marks in qualifying examinations. But preference is given to the students who apply with entrance exams.
Students must be eligible for a course to apply for admission. Here, we have provided the basic eligibility criteria of chemistry courses. But, students must note that some institutions may prescribe some more eligibility conditions along with the following criteria. So, they should go through the eligibility criteria of a particular institution before applying for admission.
Eligibility Criteria for UG Level Chemistry Course
B.Tech in Chemical Engineering: One must have passed 12th class board exams with Science subjects. He/she must have scored at least 50 per cent marks in aggregate. SC/ST students can avail relaxation up to 5 per cent in minimum marks. Having a great rank in entrance exams helps to get admission quickly.
B.Sc. Chemistry: A student must have passed 12th class exams with at least 50 per cent marks. He/she had English, Physics & Chemistry subjects in class 12 as major subjects. The minimum marks criteria may be changed as per institute. Some institutions are offering this course without any compulsion to have Physics and English in 12th. So, students should go through the eligibility criteria of a particular institution before applying for admission.
B.Voc. in Chemical Technology: He/she must have qualified 12th class exams with at least 55% marks in aggregate.
Eligibility Criteria for PG Level Chemistry Course
M.Sc. Chemistry: He/she must have passed B.Sc. (General) or B.Sc. (Hons.) Chemistry from a recognized university/institution. The student must have secured 55% or above aggregate marks in the qualifying examination with at least two papers of mathematics.
ME/M.Tech in Chemical Engineering: The student must have scored a minimum of 55 per cent marks in B.E. /B. Tech./M.Sc. or equivalent degree in Chemistry, Students who have a valid GATE score and rank can also apply for this course.
There is a wide scope of chemistry courses as it provides various career options in many industries. There is a huge demand in science, research, food industry and beauty and cosmetics industries for the candidates who have completed a chemistry course.
Even chemistry plays an important role in pharma, agriculture, the healthcare industry. The contribution of chemistry in creating Atom bombs and other weapons can not be avoided as it was not possible without chemistry science. All Industries have required chemistry professionals for oil processing, making food preservatives, metals, nuclear energy, building materials and other functions.

When you're confused what to choose between Maths and Biology. For now on,you choose both subject after 11th class or after clear your every queries which course you choose!! After that,in 12 you just prepare any one subject either Biology or Maths. As I was a PCMB student,I did the same.
Hope this helps you!!
For any query,you can ask in comment section.
Hello dear student,
It's a humble request to you to kindly mention the name of the colleges in which you are interested to do any of the above course. As there are so many universities and colleges so it will be not possible for us to mentionthe fee structure of all the universities and colleges for above courses. I hope you understand this thank you
That's an great choice, as Sharda University in Noida is an great college as 75-80% students get placements into good posts who had chosen organic chemistry. Also the food facility is good and the infrastructure of the college is good too. The teaching is great through which an student can understand the concepts in his subjects and scores well. So overall it's an great college to opt into.
