Thanks to teach this type of trick ..this will help in my next competitive exam
Sir , I am student of bsc biochemistry and i love biology very much and really want to do research in biological science i have done my paper presentation at National Institute Of Miner's Health on ''Nutrition and occupational diseases'' . Should i take msc biochemistry if i wish to do research work please guide me . I am appearing for upsc cse this year so i enrolled in your course too .
Hi Amie! Good to hear that you love biology. if you are interested in continuing research in "Nutrition", biochemistry is better option. You can focus on clearing integrated programs by IISC and NCBS, Bangalore. If not you need to aim at clearing CSIR/ICMR entrance exams. Writing JNU combined entrance would also be a good option. All the best.
