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,
