Dear aspirant


Biotechnologist

Thank you for approaching counsellors at meracareerguide. I completely understand your situation as it always happens with students as they progress studying, they may start hating the subject. The main reason is because such students would have followed other people's ideas or suggestions blindly and would have never checked if they really want to do it or atleast have some liking for the subject. Now i ask you if you followed some ones suggestions and took the decision to study this subject? If you have liked this biotechnology before i dont see any chance for you to lose interest in the subject. Any ways now dont have any worries on this and all we need to do is that we should be cautious that the next step you take is good for you. To keep you away from risk, we need to give you the best degree that your personality supports too.

For this i advice you to take the psychometric test that is available on this website. Taking the psychometric test you will know what sort of personality you have and what kind of careers you can pursue for such personalities. You can also obtain career report from this website that will give some detail information on the career you would like to pursue. So please take this psychometric test to know what other subjects interest you so much.

Next i want to ask you what makes you hate BSc biotechnology? Do you hate a BSc degree or Biotechnology degree? If you like to do an engineering degree then you can also do a BTech Biotechnology degree. If you hate Biotechnology itself what causes you to hate? Is it because it involves some drawing or is it because it has laboratory experiments? I have met many students who liked biotechnology initially but started hating it because of working in labs and with some chemicals. It is highly necessary for us to know what reason makes you hate the subject and only then we can find an alternative choice for you. Hope you understand this. It is not known to me in which year you are currently in your BSc level. If you are in your first year, and you strongly hate biotechnology then you can definitely switch to some other course that the psychometric test suggests. Alternatively if you are in second year or even a third year of BSc I advice you to finish off the degree, graduate and choose studying a degree that you like so much. There are a variety of masters course that you can do irrelevant of your bachelors subject and they are management, fashion technology, interior designing and many more.

Please take my suggestions and ask yourself what makes you hate biotechnology, then take the psychometric test and decide what suits your personality. If you are about to finish the degree then please do not discontinue and complete it and then opt for a masters degree that you like so much. All the best.

Hello


Thank you for choosing Meracareerguide and writing to us. Good that you have identified what gets you dislike at this situation now. As one of our counsellors have already mentioned here, it is highly essential to understand why you hate Biotechnology. If your reasons for not liking Biotech are correctable, then you may still offer to continue the course right. I also definitely accept with one of our counsellors, Ms. Gomathi's advice here. It is good to complete your degree if you are already in second or third year. If you have just began studying your first year BSc Biotech then there are easy ways to migrate to a new course.

As said you should really understand why you started hating this subject, whether is it all of a sudden or you were actually hating even before you began studying the subject. To keep you on the safe zone here after, I also highly feel that it is mandatory to do a psychometric assessment from this website. This test will understand your personality and will suggest you suitable careers and subjects. Therefore you will know what sort of subjects you are highly suitable to study if not this Biotech subject. This will also keep you away from taking risk in future.

If you are only in your first year, then I suggest you can switch for some other BSc courses similar to Biotechnology. If you only hate to study Biotechnology then explore yourself if you are happy to study either of these subjects at BSc level itself like Biology, Botany, Zoology, Biochemistry, Bio organic chemistry, Genetics, Medical lab technology, Optometry, Ophthalmology, micro biology, Psychology and Chemistry. If you like at least one from these set of subjects then you can just change course and continue studying the new subject, you will have no loss of years, which means you can complete the BSc degree in normal three years time. In case you want to choose some other BSc course like Maths, Physics or BA courses like History, Geography, Economics, Political Science, then you may be required to start these courses right from year one. If you do not want to lose years in education, then migrating to some other Biology related degree is only possible for you.

If you are already in second or third year, I suggest you complete the degree and choose to do a Masters in a subject you like. Also to mention, a degree level is more valid these days to seek employment than a Diploma and I would be very pleased if you consider only studying this degree level subject if you are serious in seeking employment in future. Hope this helps.Good luck.
