Here is an article on Engineering Courses
A very good article to provide the different courses for the students of biology after intermediate. BSc Nursing is the best paramedical course and has a good opportunity for a job. So, for bio students, I will suggest this course as there are many colleges for the same. Now the government is also providing this course in the govt colleges.
The author may please note that the short form for Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery is BAMS and not BAMAS. Similarly, in Madhya Pradesh, PCB and PCM are used for indicating bio and maths students respectively.
This is the known fact that the main reason for taking up BiPC is to grab a medical seat. But invariably the total seats across each state is less or very negligible. Students should never get disappointed for not getting the seat as there are other courses in bioscience, molecular biology and even Ayurveda that can be tried as an alternative. Some people branch out to paramedical courses which are also in great demand. So students need not get disheartened for not getting the medical seat and the author has given much information about other courses too to get the career ahead.
