An MBBS course requires a lot of hard work and dedication. Students work day and night to become a doctor. Naturally, the study of the human body is not an easy task. Every nerve and cell of the body has to be studied. New and new problems are being found in people of all ages all around the globe. Doctors, with their intense study and research, find the solutions to these problems so that the lives of the innocent people who are subject to such dangerous diseases can be protected. They are supposed to strong enough to witness the wounds and injuries of their patients and deal with them with care and patience.

One needs a steady heart to hear to the problems of the patient and to treat their wounds. Now to pursue this field, one either needs to take Physics, Chemistry and Biology as their subjects or Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics in 12th standard. Some students also take all the four subjects together and keep one of them as an additional subject (either Mathematics or Biology).  If the person has opted for PCB, then the following career options are available to him/her:

  • BSC- Nursing
