    Dear Student,

    There is lot more options there where you can pursue your degree in Msc after completing Bsc.

    You just need to complete your 12th with minimum 60% and science as compulsory stream so that you can clear the cutoff of some particular college for the admission in Bsc at first.

    Moreover you can apply some colleges for the entrance exams to take admission in there like BHU, JMI, AU, DU (if conducted), AMU, JNU, LU, etc. as they are the some top universities across the India. You need to clear the entrance exams of these universities with good marks so that you will be eligible to take admission in your preferred course.

    After completing your graduation in Bsc the same process you can follow to take admission in Msc.

    But I will suggest you take give entrance exams at first so that you can choose some good colleges not any random private one.
