Bachelor of Science (B.Sc)


B.Sc. or Bachelor of Science is an undergraduate degree of three/four years duration. It is one of the most popular programs opted for by science students after class 12th who have a flair for scientific aptitude and zeal for research-oriented and calculative approaches based on a proven systematic method. Science is all about experiments, research, and discovery. A B.Sc. degree is a culmination of both theoretical and practical ways of learning. The core of a BSc degree consists of courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, and other related fields. The BSc program offers a wide range of specializations and areas. Pursuing a B.Sc. degree also opens up multiple avenues for a student and they can either opt for higher studies in science or any other discipline that may be related to or different from the subjects studied during graduation. However, a Master of Science (MSc) is the most popular higher education alternative opted for by students after completing BSc.

A B.Sc. program is offered in two categories – B.Sc. Honors and B.Sc. Basic. The former focuses on one major subject area. The curriculum is designed to keep more focus on the Honours subject and also includes subjects or papers from the elective subjects students opt for.

There are numerous scholarships for B.Sc. students, such as the INSPIRE Scholarship, the HDFC Educational Crisis Scholarship Support (ECSS), the Promotion of Science Education (POSE) Scholarship, and the Kishore Vaigyanik Protsahan Yojana (KVPY).

A candidate who has passed the two years Pre-University Examination conducted by the Pre-University Education Board in Karnataka or any other examination considered equivalent thereto shall be eligible for admission to B.Sc. programs. Generally, a candidate to opt for a subject should have studied that subject at the qualifying examination.

Additional conditions of eligibility are required for specific subjects as follows

·         Candidates opting for Physics should have studied Mathematics in addition to Physics at the qualifying examination

·         Candidates opting for Botany/Zoology should have studied that subject or Biology at the qualifying



Students who successfully complete the three- or four-year Bachelor of Science (BSc) programme have a wide range of possibilities and opportunities available to them. After graduating, a student may pursue a master's degree, work as a lecturer, enter the research area, or become a lab assistant. The main justification for pursuing a BSc is that there is ongoing need for people with a background in science because the field of science and innovation is flourishing today more than ever. There will be no scarcity of career chances for a graduate who has spent three or four years learning in accordance with scientific and theoretical understanding. A further advantage of a BSc is its capacity to specialize.
