Hello friend,

You have completed your 12, so now you should get admission in BSc in any one of the following subject: Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Nano Biotechnology, Bio medical science, Environmental Science, Marine Science, Dairy Microbiology, Molecular biology, Genetics, Food Technology and there are many more subjects.

After BSc you have to choose any one subject of biology to pursue your post graduation (MSc) program. The first three semester are for course work, the fourth semester is for research project. This is very crucial because the quality of your research will matter while looking a for a job.

After MSc you have to do doctoral degree (PhD) in any specialized subject of Biology. In my opinion you should pursue your post graduation and doctoral degree in Biotechnology, molecular biology, Cell biology or environmental science, because these subjects do have great scope in governmental as well as private companies. Moreover the scope of research is also more in these subjects. But finally you have decide what subject you wish to choose. You may choose the subject which you understand better and which is close to your heart.
