  • You have just now passed 12th. It is very obvious to think about the future at this stage of life. You have already decided to pursue B.Sc in Computer Science.

    As per your query, it seems that your final goal is either to pursue M.Sc. in Physics or M.Tech. Please have a look at the below suggestions that would help you in opting the correct course.

    1. After B.Sc. (Computer Science), you can pursue M.Sc. (Com. Sc.). This way you can make yourself strong in your core field which will be very fruitful for your career. In today's era it is very important to be educated in the same field to get good job.

    2 There is no issue doing M.Sc (Physics) after B.Sc. (Comp.Sc), but the career opportunities after this will not be like after M.Sc. (Comp.Sc). Hope you understand this .

    3. Now, After B.Sc. (Comp.Sc.), opting M.Sc. (Physics) and again pursuing M.Tech will be time taking. You can do even more better without doing double PG.

    4. If your final goal is to pursue M.Sc (Physics) then you better opt B.Sc. (Physics). After this you can prepare for UGC NET examination to build your career in teaching. You can do better in core field.

    5. If your goal is to pursue M.Tech you can do B.Tech in Computer Science. As per your query, seems you are interested in Computer Science so good to pursue (Comp.Sc.). This can done either from private engineering collage or from Government engineering collage. You will have to score good in GATE examination after B.Tech to get the government engineering colleges like IITs or NITs or State Universities.

    Hope the above comments will help and guide you in opting the correct course. Wish you all the very best for your future.

  • First of all I feel happy that you have secured a good percentage in your class XII PCM stream. It shows that you have a comfortable control in these subjects. Now you are planning for B.Sc. and then want to appear in JAT for getting admission in M.Sc. program. After completing B.Sc. you are eligible to appear in JAT only thing is you should secure 60% marks in B.Sc. For reserved categories even 55% is admissible.

    One thing which I want to advise at this stage is that now you have to do more efforts in your studies as B.Sc. course is much more exhaustive and getting good marks in class XII does not guarantee one to secure same in B.Sc. More and more efforts are needed as you move up in the ladder whether it is higher education or job hunting.

    Another important thing is in JAT entrance test the papers are generally modelled on reasoning, aptitude, mathematical abilities and logical analysis. In light of that you have to orient yourself and start giving some time to those things also so that just after B.Sc. you are not pressurised with new things. Remember it is always beneficial in life to start early. I will suggest that during your B.Sc. pursuit give some time to these learnings also.

    If you take up these challenges with hard work and persistent efforts then you can score good in GATE where your overall knowledge will be tested and if you fare well in that then it will definitely give you good opportunity to get admission in coveted institutions like IITs.

    As a final word of advice I want to reiterate that there is no substitute of hard work in making a career. All the best.

    Knowledge is power.

  • 1. Congratulations to you for getting a good percentage in your 12th Class.
    2.After M.Sc. Physics there is no point in doing M.Tech. It takes more time also. So now you have to decide whether to go for M.SC{Physics) or M.Tech. Based on that you can take the admission now.
    3. If you want to pursue M.Tech, please concentrate on the entrance test for B.Tech. Try to get a good rank. Then you can join in any IIT or NIT or any other reputed University and you can complete your B.Tech. After B.Tech you have to attend your GATE examination and seek admission into a good institute for M.Tech. This will be option one. You have to spend about 6 years for this qualification. After that, you will have many options for jobs either in India or abroad.
    4. If you like to go for M.Sc (Physics ) take admission in B.Sc with physics and put in your best efforts to get good marks in your B.Sc. Once you can complete your B.Sc and if you secure minimum 60% in your B.Sc you will be eligible for M.Sc. You can apply to the University of your choice and get admitted into M.Sc. This will take 5 years.
    5. There are institutes like BITS Pilani, who are offering integrated M.Sc. You can apply now and you will be studying there for about 5 years and you will obtain your M.Sc.
    5. Still, you are interested in studies after your M.Sc or M.Tech you can right the common entrance test for NET conducted by UGC/CSIR. If you are qualified in that examination you will be given fellowship for doing your PhD
    6. I prefer B.Tech and then M.Tech as option 1 and the other one as option 2.

    always confident

  • You must be congratulated on your grand performance in class twelve by securing 95 percent in PCM group and is interested to persue B.SC computer science. This is rather an attractive choice in the computer related domain but it should be clearly understood any change of the stream at the later stage may affect your career prospects.
    In your case, the normal growth in terms of employment would be to persue the similar line in the post - graduation studies ie sustaining the computer stream in your post graduate level.
    Even in the established institutions would not allow to take up Physics after graduation in Computer - science since they would be interested to offer the seat to the aspirants having passed out with Physics in the graduation level.
    In course of your future interview your employer would also be interested to know the valid reason for such a change.
    Hence take a decision at this stage which stream you would like to persue and take a decision accordingly ie either a computer or Physics field fr the better growth in future.
