Hi Abhinav,

I somehow liked your query and your openness and simplicity in which you wrote this query.

Please note that one must choose a career in which their interests lies. Do not choose on the basis of salary or position. Because if you are not interested in the work, the outcome will be zero and then you will be just manually working and ultimately would not be able to draw the salary that you deserve.

But in a field that you are interested, salary will be less, but with your effort and outstanding potentials, you would get what you are worth for.

Please note that Marine biologists are individuals who study microorganism, plants and animals under the ocean.

Since you are interested in this line, you could think of merging both the fields.


Hope you are aware that your job is more research oriented.
So instead of always being onshore, you can turn into microbiology and conduct research whereby developing new medicines and helping in protecting the organism in the shore.
But please note opportunity in this field is more abroad than in India.

Coming to your second course option, Forensic Sciences.

  • Firstly, are you the mystery loving person
  • Do you like to study and resolve issues related to genes
  • Do you like solving crime related cases
  • Most importantly can you stand in front of the corpses and at the same time handle or perform operations on the corpse.

    Then forensics is your field.

But at the end would like to tell you, before making a choice be sure what you wish to do.
So best would be to undergo an Aptitude tests, that will help you make a confirmed choice.

Hope this helps.

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