The students can purse their B.Sc. degree in two ways i.e. BSc. (Major) and B.Sc. (General). The explanation for both types has been mentioned below:

  • B.Sc. (Major): The learners who are interested in doing specialization in any particular discipline in depth, then he can choose to do B.Sc. (Major) with one of the following subjects and select the courses accordingly: Physics, Chemistry, Life Science and Mathematics. After completing the bachelor degree programme in science discipline, the students can pursue for postgraduate studies for same discipline.
  • B.Sc. (General): It is not necessary to choose any particular discipline to pursue the bachelor of science. So, the learner can do the B.Sc. (General) by selecting different courses from all the available disciplines. If you select maximum credits from same discipline, then you might not end up with enough knowledge in any of the disciplines. So, it is advised to carefully select the courses.
