I have taken PCM in grade 12. I want to specialize in forensic chemistry. Will I still be able to pursue my field without biology being my core subject? Any suggestions of those colleges which will allow me to continue this field without biology?

Hi Nikitha,

As far as pursuing Forensic Science is concerned it is a specialization offered at the Masters level.

To pursue an M.Sc in Forensic science, one needs to be a Science Graduate. Though I do not disagree that Biology knowledge is needed, but while going through the eligibility criteria and course syllabus, I noticed that they have mentioned Science Graduate, as well as someone with any specialization at the Graduate level including Physics, Chemistry etc.

The syllabus shows that they would be covering aspects of Biology needed. 

In-case if you are still in doubt, then I would suggests, you to appear for a Biology paper separately or if possible opt for Biology immediately.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck...

Hello Nikitha,

Let me tell you that It is very innovative thinking of yours, if you chose a subject where lot investigation and brainstorming is involved. As you have mentioned that you want to pursue Forensic Chemistry, though just completed 12th. You have to go through the level of Graduation under any of your chosen subjects like microbiology, chemistry, physics, applied sciences etc. After such scientific education level, you will be eligible to enter in Master's course of Forensic Science where you can choose your favorite Forensic Chemistry as a specialized subject
. And in the journey of your continuous career, you must acquire certain skills as scientific aptitude, inquisitive nature, observation skills, research inclination and talent for analyzing scientifically & logically.
