Dear Friend:Biology has very vast scope to offer you it depends on your capability and background which enable you to decide what is the best suited for you. Requirement of maths at elementery level is pre-requisite for any technological study for example biotechnology, biophysics, bionanotechnology, Marine biology etc. These are the optional and excellent contemporary theams of biology that you can join at initial level or after completion of MBBS being a medical scholar. Why you are lagging behind in terms of maths what a big deal into this? If you can understand biology which is the most complex natural system in the world at the same time it deals with such a sensitive biological systems starting from unicellular to multicellular then where is the problem in understanding math, physics and chemistry those are the integeral part of current facinating technology. Even in the clinical practice as a doctor you need to be instrumental of statstics and bio-physics to address the tech based operation then how come you are estimating yourself towards MBBS and any other biological streams at other side and higher side.Based on my above comments you just try to follow the points below might be helpful for you:1. First you clear your capability to afford the tech based program and your interest and comfort to any stream where you will genuinly enjoy and will justufy the subject.2. Now a days people opt the general biological sciences, life sciences, immunological sciences, etc through the proper gateway like cracking national level of national test which validate yours credibility with your background and then you will be given oportunity to struggle in bio-sciences or biotechnology. Here struggle means effort, dedication, hard work and patience only then you will be able to incubate and harvest the best knowldege for biosciences.3. Try to visit several research institutions and look their aptidudes similarly visit medical colleges and see the course work and then estimate your eligibility i hope everything will be clear. It is very important to understand your potential rather checking the potency of any subject, you have speciic fitness and trait to for the expression in response to specific stimulus.Keep these things into mind then go ahead BestDr. Manoj
Dear friend, first of all i wish you success in your MBBS entrance exam. Youu try your level best to crack the MBBS entrance exam. Few tips for you will be seek guidance from experts, you may also visit and take coaching from coaching institutes, alternatelively, you go through the previous years question papers. This will give you an idea, what types of questions are asked in entrance exam so that you can plan your studies accordingly.If you cant make it, then there several options in biology subjects. The subject biology has many disciplines such as botany, zoology, biotechnology, microbiology (food, dairy, fishery, clinical, medical), biochemistry, bioinformatics, biomedical sciences, forensic sciences, marine biology, fishery science, nanobiotechnology, agricultural sciences, veterinary sciences, pharmacology, medical laboratory technology and many more.You have to do graduation in one or two subjects mentioed above except in agricultural, veterinary, biomedical and medical laboratory technology. For agricultural science and veterinary science there is seperate entrance exam or admission is based on the merit list of 10+2 marks, depending upon the university / institute. The other biology science subject, you have to graduation, masters degree and then a doctoral degree. You can go for higher education from India or from abroad. Practically speaking, a degree from abroad has more values (technically the degree from any country is same). The subjects of biology, which I have mentioned, have great scope in governmental as well as in private sector. For private sector a masters degree in biology is sufficient but a doctoral degree will give aboost in your career. Regarding government sector such as universities, colleges, research institutes, a doctoral degree is must. Although you may also join public sector after masters degree, but it will be difficult to get entry level of Assistant Professor, Assistant Scientist or Lecturer. But you can easily make as Senior Research Fellow, Junior Reseearch fellow. If you have National Eligibility Test (NET) certificate awarded by UGC-CSIR or ICAR or by any state then the entry after masters and doctoral degree will be easy. A person holding masters degree or doctoral degree has great job potential in India as well as abroad. You have to decide, where do you wish to work and in which sector, government or private. I believe that, the job of a biologist is very interesting.With all my best wishes..Good Luck....
