What scope does biotech/microbio have in india & abroad? Should one prepare for KVPY exams for IISER for biology or are there any other reputed institutions too?
Biotechnology and Microbiology come under allied biology courses and do have great scope in teaching , research institutes and R&D department of many famous companies. It has scope in both India and abroad however abroad countries like USA, UK , Australia tend to have more scope comparitively as there is more research facility and infrastructure there. Biotechnology is expected to boom in the near future and has high demand.
You should definitely prepare for KVPY for admission into IISERs and IISC as these institutes are top notch and are very research centric giving huge opportunities to the students selected. Nevertheless , there are many other reputed institutes in India for biology like -
1. BHU , Varnasi 2. Delhi University ( Hindu College , Miranda House) 3.IITs ( For masters) 4. Stella Marie , Loyola College.
Hope this helps you! Good luck!
Iam completed 12th by pcm in this year with unsatisfaction because Didnt know competative exams like Olympiads,KVPY etc.Iam realised today so, Is there any Common Competative exams for Engineering students to Prepare and Right In Engineering life ?
see there is no good coming thinking about the past. so if you are an engineering student, you would get opportunity to participate in many challenging programs which held by MNCS like accenture, infosys, IBM, microsoft etc. also IITs, nits has yearly tech fest organized where students have to give presentation for innovative projects . so there is lot of things to do and while going through many challenging competition , you have to decide in which way you want to make career, whether you want to do higher study or go for job. Another thing is there is GATE and IES exam which is who competitive exam where engineering students may apply. based on gate score you may get job in PSUS like Indian oil, power grid, ntpc etc , admission to m.tech program in iits, iiits , nits is based on g gate score. IES i.e Indian engineering services exam, based on ies score candidates are recruit as officers for the services to the technical functions/ engineering filed under the Government of India.
I scored 5.5 in kvpy exam ?? is it a good mark or not ? 5.5(out of 100)
KVPY is the entrance test for getting into IISc , IISERs that are extremely reputed institutes. A score of 5.5 in the KVPY exam is unfortunately not enough to get selected for the interview. There are 3 streams , i.e, SA,SB,SX for different categories. SA is for 11th grade , SX for 12th and SB for first year undergraduation. However the cutoff through any category and stream isnt sufficient.
