Courses and career after 12th science biology group

After 12th science, the course a student chooses defines his/her career. Such is the importance of that decision. I’ve already written an article titled- ‘best courses to do after 12th science’. That article has been getting many visits also. Since then, I’ve been getting requests from Biology stream students of 12th science class. They’ve been asking me to write a similar list, exclusively for Biology students, so that they can readily make use of it. Here I’m, with one such list of best courses, aimed at creating good careers for biology stream students.

microscope

 

The reason they said was that the article about top courses after 12th science contained too much information. Yes, that article consists of courses for both Mathematics and Biology students. With this article, I guess that now they won’t have to carefully scan out group B related courses!

 

I’ve tried to keep the list real concise and cover as many good courses as I could. Make sure that you read the whole post, analyze each course and select the one that suits you the best. I agree that you may be well aware of many entries here. But I had to list them here, to make this list as concise as possible.

 

Courses and Careers after 12th Science, Biology Group

The list starts here. The courses are not ‘ranked’. This is just a random order.

 

#1 MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery)

The most sought after and popular course after one completes 12th science, biology. MBBS is for those, who want to become a Doctor. I guess almost all of you know that!

 

But the problem with doing MBBS is that there is heavy competition involved in the admission process. The Government College seats, the most sought after one, is taken up by meritorious students and the ones who are eligible for reservations.

 

The admission is based on the marks scored in 12th science and entrance examination. If you want to get into a private/Government Medical College, you must have scored good scores in those exams. Here are some relevant medical entrance exams – NEET UG 2019 and AFMC MBBS 2019.

 

Further, don’t think that just doing MBBS would suffice. To gain value and knowledge, one must also be willing to do PG (Post Graduation) course also, which again is highly competitive!

 

And after becoming a Doctor, it won’t be just about building a lucrative career and money! You should be ready to serve, ready to sacrifice many personal pleasures etc. The course duration is five and a half years. For more details, check this detailed article out- MBBS after 12th.

 

#2 Veterinary Sciences

By doing this course also, one can become a doctor. A doctor of animals, to be precise! Hey, don’t underestimate this course though! This is one of the least saturated course out there.

 

By less saturated, I mean, relatively, this course is opted by few students. This makes it very easy for a graduate student to get Government Job easily! Further, people are getting more and more interested in petting animals. This trend is even catching up in big cities. So, the scope of starting up your own clinic/venture also is good! Check out this detailed guide to get more details about Veterinary Science course- B.V.Sc. and AH Course.

 

#3 BAMS (Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery)

Again, by doing this course also, you can become a Doctor. But an Ayurvedic Doctor! Ayurveda is a field, which is thriving even now. It started to grow a while back, with the boost in tourism industry.

 

Thanks to a booming tourism industry, Ayurveda Tourism packages have become quite popular among tourists. Many chains of Ayurvedic hospitals are raking in huge profits during the tourist season.

 

With Ayurveda and its benefit of having no side effects getting well known, more and more people are willing to make use of it! In India, more people are now ready to visit Ayurvedic clinics to solve their health problems.

 

Not only in India, it has also earned a good name abroad also. Opening up a good Ayurvedic clinic abroad isn’t a bad idea! The course duration is five and a half years. Check out this detailed article to get more details about this course- BAMS Course.

 

#4 BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery)

After doing this course, you can become a Dentist. Yes, you will be called a Doctor!

 

Like MBBS, in order to succeed and have a good career in this field, you one must be willing to do PG course also. The duration of the course is 5 years.

 

Compared to an MBBS Doctor, a BDS Doctor will have a bit more time to relax! The schedule won’t be as hectic as an MBBS Doctor. But this again depends on various factors like the ‘popularity’ you achieve, your work rate, skills etc. A popular dentist will have more appointments and thus have a busy time!

 

#5 Pharmacy

You may go for B Pharm Degree, followed by an M Pharmacy Degree and land a good job in Pharmaceuticals company or as a lecturer in Pharmacy colleges.

 

The course duration of B Pharm is 4 years and that of M Pharm is 2 years. So, doing both of them will take up 6 years to complete.

 

You may even apply for Government Jobs. Some examples of such jobs are- Drug Control department, Pharmacist in Government Hospitals etc.

 

# 6 Pharm D

Pharm D is a lot different from B Phar and M Pharm. Actually, it is a combination of B Pharm, M Pharm and MBBS!

 

The duration of the course is 6 years. I’ve heard that since the course is a combination of all the above mentioned courses, it is a bit difficult to study.

 

But, this course is opted by relatively lesser number of students. This makes the job market less crowded.

 

#7 B Sc

You may go for a B Sc Degree in an available discipline and follow it up by completing an M Sc degree! The job opportunities consists of fields like- teaching, research, Government Jobs, Private jobs etc.

 

Duration of B Sc course is 3 years and that of M Sc is 2 years. Completing both these courses will consume 5 years.

 

Research is a field that is less explored. There is much job scope in there. If are meritorious and passionate, then you may land a research job in Government organization or Private firm easily! Some of the well known B Sc programs available in front of Biology Group students are-
