main 12th bad bsc karna chahti hn biology c kon best h botany ya zoology??

Ronit Jain 26th Oct, 2019

To the best of my knowledge, in majority of the streams of B.Sc courses for life science candidates, definitely, there will be a combination of Botany and Zoology. So, you will have to go through both the subjects in Graduation with B.Sc.

As per the best choice between Botany and Zoology, you can choose the one as per your interest. Botany is purely related to Plants. All your study is related to various kinds of plants which belong to various families.

Zoology deals with the study of animals. You have to study various metabolic systems and metabolic processes of animals like

-Digestive systesm

-Respiratory system

-Reproductive system.

So, I suggest you to make the choice as per your interest.

Following are a few entrance tests that are conducted by some of the PhD in Biological sciences colleges in India:

JNU PhD Entrance

NCBS Joint Graduate Entrance Examination for Biology and Interdisciplinary Life Sciences (JGEEBILS)

NIPER PhD Entrance Exam

TIFR Graduate School Admission Entrance Test

After Botany can i go for Agriculture?

Ronak Gala Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019

See there are very less universities which allow you to join for MSC Agriculture is you are a non agricultural student ie from BSC BOTANY. Assam Agricultural University Jorhat of lately has started incorporating non Agriculture background students in MSc courses specially in Agricultural Biotechnology department. For that you need to appear for an entrance test followed by an interview. Once you get enrolled you have to go through some basic courses in pure Agriculture called Bridge courses alongwith your normal courses in order to be at par with the Agriculture background students since they have spent four years in graduation instead of three as in case of yours.
