    My Tests

I want to do M. Sc. in Biotechnology. My friends are telling me as I am studying B. Sc. in Physics, I will not be eligible for this. Is it true? Which colleges offer this course? Does JNU conduct any admission test for this?

No, it is not true. Typically, eligibility requirement for admission to a M. Sc. course in Biotechnology is a Bachelor's degree under 10+2+3 pattern of education in Physical/Biological/ Agricultural/Veterinary Science/Fishery Science/ Pharmacy/ Engineering/ Technology or Medicine (MBBS) or BDS with at least 55% marks in aggregate. Some Universities require 50% marks and a few other Universities require 60% marks in the Bachelor degree examination.
