Hello friend,

It is quite common i your age, that one cannot decide what to opt and what to left. Both the subjects math and biology have their own interest and career retrospectives. You have to decide yourself, what you want to be in future. If you wish to become engineer, or want to pursue career in math then better opt mathematics. Have you ever given a thought that you want to be a professor or scientist of mathematics. If so, then math will be right choice for you.

Private Questions

If you wish to become doctor or want to be in biology stream, then you should choose biology. In biology stream there are many disciplines, such as botany, zoology, microbiology, biotechnology, biochemistry, biomedical sciences sciences, fishery sciences, environmental sciences, Genetics, agricultural sciences, veterinary sciences, , Forestry, Food Technology, Dairy Technology and many more. Is there any subject which appeals you more or which close to your heart. If so then the biology will be right discipline for you.

As I said, you will be the only person, who will decide either math or biology. Just sit alone and think, what you want, it is not possible to take both the subjects simultaneously. You may discuss with your seniors, your parents and teacher. They will also guide you. Just think, on what platform you want to see yourself in future.

Dont get confused, you may also go for psychometric test conducted by This test will really let you know, what subject you should opt to choose for your future career.

With all my best wishes,

Good Luck...

Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for approaching us at!!!

Confusion between Maths and Biology is a commonly observed thing.

Best way will be to analyse your interests, since both the subjects offer great careers and are both opposite to each other.'s Ideal Career Test, which is a psychometric test will be able to exactly tell you which of the both will be best stuited to you.

You can then call counsellors to discuss.

Best wishes,

Dr. Anand Wadadekar
