Dear friend

Very interesting field you are exploring-BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES---
Take the following paths you will succeed it:
1. After 12th depends on your pass percentage your career will be canalized, though marking system is not the sole criteria for any success.
2. If you are interested in Medical science you can adapt in two ways either by qualifying AIPMT conducted by CBSE and then go for excellent medical degree course like MBBS, MD, MS, or some othe entrances are also available like AFMC and degree like BDS, BAMS etc.
Preparation is required in structural manner:
2. If you opting MBBS then make sure you are not going to dilute your objectives by being jacl of all the trades. Go through the entire scientific courses starting from 8th to 12th class of NCERT book apart from your own course. Make your communication skill vibrant, develop aptitude like a doctor who has calm and composed behaviour. adapt long session study and ignore your side illusions which distracts you from the study
3. Look for the CBSE structure and check the state listing for your location and further placement.
4. Your interest must be predominant throughout the preparation and target the specific course which make the coherency with your background.
5. As far as higher studies are concerned which i have cited in para 2 as optional then you need to obtain bachelor degree either in B.Tech Biotechnology-nanotech, bioengineering etc and then followed by M.TECH and Ph.D. After Ph.D you must qualify National Eligibility Test (NET) and Junior Research Fellowship -JRF conducted by University Grand Comission, Council of Scientific Research (CSIR) and other govt bodies. It will reflect your credibility for research excellence and also help you in financially.
6. Many premium institutes in India like IISc, Bangalore, JNU & DU, New Delhi, KU, kolkata, and many research institutes of governemnt and premium private universities like BITS pilani, BIT MESRA, AMITY University and international organization like ICGEB, NEW Delhi, South ASian University will offer you excellent course work to make suitable to be research scientist and professor in biology

Biology has many many options-more you know more you get confused-as you are very young. So before select final one please try to know surfing Google for the preliminary knowledge of each biological options. after plus II you can grow with Biology if you have either good marks or have subjects like followings:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Nutrition
  • Maths
  • Sometimes Physics
  • Geography
  • Psychology
After plus II
you may grow as
  • Simply Hons Graduate( Physiology/Zoology/Botany)
  • Medical Entrance
  • Veterinarian
  • Bio-physics
  • Bio-chemistry
  • Bio-technology
  • Nutrition
  • Dietician, after Graduation
  • Bio-informatics
  • Genetics
  • Bio-Engineering
  • Medical Technologist
  • Agricultural Science
  • Oceanology
  • Psychologist( Experimental/Counselling/Clinical)
  • Optometrist
  • many more

After Graduation you have many super fine course in Master Level/Post Graduation Level-so Biology has many options.

Dear Friend

Biology is such a subject where life is understood my multidimensional approaches where entire technologyical world is involved and giving a multidisciplinary and trnasdisciplinary approaches into the contemporary research.
Now it is you waht you want to do in biological world as I am going to explain you the available oportunities in this area where you have to understand your potential with the suitability approach:

1. General biology: It is life sciences which include botany and zoology just after 10th pass. Followed by B.Sc or B.Sc hons in specialized subject either in zoology or botany where you will study biology system wise. Zoology gives the detail knowlege about animal sciences and other species which make you brings you to the intricacies of biological facts. Similarly botany captures all the facts of flora -plant species from unicellelular to multicellular level. Overall general biology or life sciences explains the dundamentals of flora and fauna and gives you the strength to explore the application of biology which will be explained at the latter stage.

After graduation go for M.Sc then explore the job in the same field as teacher, scientist, technician either in research or in academic. Though higher degree is always required to explore the executive level of job or higher academic level of job, if it is affordable then must qualify UGC-NET or CSIR-JRF or many other qulaification required for Ph.D from any prestigious institute or university. Doctorate degree gives you the highest exposures to the scientific world where you can take a lead in academics as well as research and can set the milestones for others and accordingly society will be benfitted from your research. Ofcourse you will be recruited as scientist, director, professor and many more dignified jobs will be waiting for you with smart salary package. Please mind it that struggle is required to groom a career.

2. Biotechnology/ Marine Biology/ Nano technology/ Agri-biotechnology/Food Technology/ Industrial Biotechnology: These are all applied subjects of biology those are offered at sciences as well as technology level both. Also require the background with biology and maths in complementary. Institutes like IIT/IISc/IISER/NIT/JNU/DU any many research instittues sponsored by govt of india like DBT, DST, ICAR, CSIR. One can join for the bright future in research and academics.

All the best.

Dear Aspirant, your question is very interesting, since you are 12 standard and wish to make biology subject as career. After 12 standard, you should try for medical entrance examination. To crack it, you have to study the subjects (biology, physcics, chemistry) nicely. If possible you may take caoching for guidance and consult previous years question papers to understand the pattern of examination.

Ther is another subject, after medical sciences, that is veterinary sciecnes, a course of five years. This course has lot of scope and a veterniary graduate can join government organization as Vetrenarian. But for further grwoth in career you should pursue masters degree in veterinary sciences.

An agricultural graduate is also a very good subject in biology. An agricultural graduate is eligible for Agricultural Development Officer (ADO). There is seperate exam for BSc Agriculture and BVSc. In some universities, the admission is based on merit list i.e. on the basis of marks obtained in 12 standard.

Besides these subjects there are many more biology subjects such as :
BSc in zoology, botany and chemistry; after this you may pursue masters degree in zoology, botany, microbiology and biotechnology
BSc in Botany, microbiology and biochemistry; after graduation, you may pursue masters degree in botany, biochemistry, biotechnology and microbiology
BSc in Zoology, botany, Microbiology, after this you may pursue Masters degree in Marine sciences, Fishery sciences
BSc in Microbiology, Biotechnology, after this you may pursue MSc in Microbiology, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Nanobiotechnology
BSc in Foresnsic sciences and masters degree in same field.

BSc in environmental science, then masters degree in environmental science.
BSc/BTech in Biomedical Science and masters degree in Biomedical Sciecnes.
BSc/MSc in pharmacology
Btech / MTech Biotechnology (intigrated course)

Let me tell you, in the field of biology after MSc the doctoral degree is very important. If you have MSc degree in microbiology or botany, even then you can pursue doctoral degree in Biotechnology or Molecular Biology. Now a days, there is lot of work and research going on in Nanobiotechnology. Therefore, this subject is in demand.

As a biologist, you will have chances to get an entry into universities, colleges, institutions. You can make an entry as lecturer, scientist, researcher or Assistant Professor. But you should have national Eligibility Test (NET) certificate awarded by UGC-CSIR or ICAR.

As a biologist you will be having lot of job opportunities in private or multinational companies. Her eyou will be not required to have NET certificate.
In nut shell, the subject biology has tremendous scope.

Good Luck...
