There are many fields related to biology after 12th. MBBS is the best field but you are not interested in it. Anyways there is no need to get confused rather explore every source around you and find out what you are interested in actually. Good to know that you like Biology and you like the subject. I will help you by giving you many options available for pursuing career related to Biology.

The most preferred  courses after 12th biology are MBBS, B.Sc clinical research and integrated M.Sc / MTech in Biotechnology. Clinical research is the systematic study of new drugs, biological products and treatment of diseases. India is increasingly becoming the hub of clinical trials for major pharma companies due to high percentage of professionals and timely completion of projects.

There are certain well know institutes which give courses related to biology , i am writing the names and the websites related to the institutes-

- Institute of clinical research (
- Jamia Hamdard university,Delhi (
- Bioinformatics center,university of Pune (

Biotechnology also has a good future prospect and the best course for it will be integrated MSc/ MTech in biotechnology. The institutes offering courses are St.Xaviers Calcutta ( ), University of Pune (, Amity institute of biotechnology (, you can visit the websites for more details and further information.

The other courses are written below , you can have a look at them find out about them from net and your social circle, professors ect.

- Pharma line by doing B.Pharma
- Applied Biology- Apiculture, sericulture, Fishery, Piggeryetc are the various branches of biology

There are so many fields which you can choose from. But be confident and positive. Positivity can only take you to the heights which you want to achieve.

Hello Shaheer..!!

After 12th Science, most of the students choose to go for the NEET exam to get a degree in MBBS or BDS to become a Doctor or a Dentist. But apart from being a Doctor or Dentist, there are lots of other opportunities are also there for those who are not interested in these job profiles.

There are plenty of other options for you, which are as follow:


Agriculture and Animal Husbandry

Life Science Researcher


Social Worker




Clinical Researcher


Food Science/Technology


Medical Laboratory Worker

and many more..!!!

You can choose whichever field you like and can make your career in that field after your 12th.

Hope this will help..!!

Good luck..!!
