You can go for M.Sc. after B.Sc. I think this is the best option for you.

To get admission in M.Sc. course, you have to first appear in an entrance exam. The most popular entrance exam is IIT JAM (Joint Admission test for M.Sc.).

Below are the best entrance exams other than IIT JAM through which you can get admission to MSc course.

  1. National Entrance Screening Test (NEST)
  3. GSAT (GITAM Science Admission Test)
  4. OUAT Entrance Exam

But you should first satisfy all the eligibility criteria required to appear in these exams.

Best of Luck!
