Hi Anamika,Happy new year and happy sankranti too.

Very good that you have decided to continue further with your education.

You might have heard the phrase, "Where there is a will, there is a way".

As far as pursuing an M.Sc is concerned, you can easily go ahead and pursue a post-graduation degree.

Only that you would have to appear for a bridge exam. This is mainly to check your basic concepts.
Since it has been a long gap, the University needs to check your basic or else you would not be able to cope with the further curriculum.

Here, you would now have to visit the University, which ever is your choice. Meet personnel there and they would be able to guide you accordingly.
Also please note that few Universities, do not have the bridge exams depending on the specializations you opt for.

eg. If you are opting for a general M.Sc program which any Graduate can opt for, then you would not have to appear for the bridge exam, But still best would be to get it clarified with the required authorities only.

As far as scope in the education department is concerned, mainly they are involved in course curriculum and other academic areas for students.
Also into the year planning, arranging for workshops and seminars beneficial to students.
Also they are into introducing new courses which can be pursued by students in future, as well as placements.

Initially you would be a part of majorly all functions but mainly in terms of research, that is into finding information and with experience, you would be in the course planning team.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you good luck............

The accurate answer depend on your specilization (Mathematics, chemistry, biology etc).Considering the genderal stream, MSc have scope in four major areas: a) academics b) private coaching classes, c) Governemnt jobs, and d) private companies.a)

a) Academics (Schools/colleages): To work as a teacher in school, you need to do BEd. For job at government school, you need to clarify respective State Governent's teacher's Aptitude Test. Some State Government recruit school teachers through common recruitemnt test. Monthly salary vary from 8000 to 35000 depending upon experience and nature of job contract.

To work with colleage/university, you need to clarify National Eligibility Test for Assistant Professiorship or MPhil. You can wotk with BEd colleges as teacher after doing MEd.

Roughly, one teacher earn at-least 3000 from one coaching class for 20 classes per month or INR 120 per class. If you start your own coaching, theere is no limit to income.
