Hi There,

Interesting question.


I am sure you are aware of the general B.Sc, which is a 3 years undergraduate course post 12th Science.
One learns the general principles of science in this particular course.

In comparison to a plain B.Sc, A B.Sc (H), will also stress on basic science methodology, only addition is that you have to submit a dissertation. A dissertation is like a project or a summary of what you have learnt in the entire year of graduation. In this course, the student not only knows the theoretical aspects but are also well versed with the practical aspect of the subject too. The dissertation is the key to your degree. Mind you id the professor is unhappy with the project, you may be asked to submit another study. This makes you a master of the subject.


In terms of the job market, a B.Sc (H) is given preference.

A B.Sc Applied science is an addition to a B.Sc Honors. In applied sciences, one not only studies science related subjects but also its application part. Like in Honors, you just have to summarize what you study, but in Applied science, you basically apply the principles, just like a technology course.
So you are also practically oriented in terms of application of the scientific principles.

This course though requires a minimum 4 years to complete, but at the end of the degree, the student is industrially ready.


Though in India, very few University provides a B.Sc Applied and a B.Sc (H) course.
In Mumbai only a general B.Sc is available.

Here comes your choice and your decision making capacity.
If you are ready for hardcore practical and application based in your Graduation course, then a B.Sc (H) or Applied B.Sc is your course. And mind you for that, you would have to leave Mumbai and be ready to face hostel life.

Hope this helps you in making a sound decision.
In-case of confusion, better would be to know your potentials, through an Aptitude tests and then make a sound choice.

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