  • M.Sc. in Pharmaceutical Chemistry is a two year postgraduate course. The course is basically the study of drugs and drug development. This is a very important area and has a good potential for the career growth.

    The eligibility for the course is B.Sc. degree from a recognized university. There are many institutes where this course is offered but the admission is based on the entrance test or merit as devised by the individual institute. Admission process is different in different institutes and some of them consider the merit as per marks obtained in one's graduation. A minimum score of 50% (45% for SC/ ST/ OBC ) is required in graduation for the candidates interested in applying for it.

    Some of the institutes offering this course are -

    Loyola College, Chennai; St. Xavier's College, Mumbai; Christ University, Bangalore; Madras Christian College, Chennai; The Oxford College of Science, Bangalore; Stella Maris College, Chennai; Fergusson College, Pune; Hans Raj College, New Delhi; Presidency College, Chennai; Miranda House College, New Delhi; Mount Carmel College, Bangalore; St. Xavier's College, Kolkata; Sri Venkateswara College, New Delhi; Gargi College, New Delhi; St Joseph's College Devagiri, Calicut; St Francis College for Women, Hyderabad; Hindu College, New Delhi; Ramnarain Ruia College, Mumbai; Ethiraj College for Women, Chennai and Acharya Narendra Dev College, New Delhi.

    As different institutes have their own entrance test then it is not possible to find out the model questions but one has to prepare more in chemistry associated with drugs and pharmaceutical field. One must read all the basic books related to the biological and chemical things associated with drug industry. Do not go in the industrial details.

    Knowledge about virus, bacteria, human immune system, metabolism, biomedical analysis, medical tests, basic human body and ailments, how diseases spread etc should be clear to the candidates because these institutions will try to see one's aptitude in this area. Other than that the basic logic and managerial questions can also be prepared.

    I will suggest to go again through the science books of class XI and XII also so that the basic things can be revised. Graduation things will be anyway in the recent memory.

    Knowledge is power.
