    The minimum percentage required will depend on the institute. Normally it will be 50% to 70%. You have mentioned that you pursued science during the 12th standard. But you also need to have pursued Maths too as a subject. You may need to clear an entrance exam too. During the first year you will be given an introduction in the various areas. These will include Nanotechnology, Biomedicine, Bio Process Technology etc. You can select the area based on your interest. You also have the option to go in for specialisation by going for the Masters degree. The same is a must for growth in career.

    Re: What are subjects in B.Sc Biotechnology?

    Biotechnology is a field which deals with the study of biology and technology. The basic qualification needed to get admission into the course is plus two in science. The students should study the subject physics, chemistry along with mathematics and biology or computer science. There should be some minimum mark criteria for the students in the qualifying board exam. The minimum mark can vary from 50% to 70% depending upon the university or institute applying. There are some institutes which carry out entrance test for the aspirants. There are different areas in biotechnology that a student can opt for. Tissue Engineering, Microfluidics, Biomedicine, Biosensors, Pharmaceutical, Bioprocess Technologies and Nanotechnology etc are some of the diversified field in the area. You can select any area depending upon your interest and your aspiration about the career. All the fields of biotechnology prove to be a good career option for the interested candidates.

    Re: What are subjects in B.Sc Biotechnology?

    the subjects' choice differs from college to college. as per my bachelors, there were 4 major subjects:
    1. Biotechnology, which was mandatory
    2. Chemistry, which was mandatory
    3. Botany / Zoology (optional)
    4. foundation course- in which there are languages:
    a.English
    b.Hindi
    c. the third subject changes every year
    for 1st year it's entrepreneurship development
    2nd yr-environmental studies
    3rd yr-computers
    all the best!!!!!

    You don't have to take any subjects as you will be already selecting Biotechnology in B.Sc.
    Biotechnology is a subject that evolved from Biological sciences.
    It is a study related to the use of living organisms and living processes in engineering, technology, medicine
    and other medical fields.
    You will study subjects like Biophysics, Mathematics, BioChemistry,Microbiology,Genetics, Immunology,
    Plant biology, Bio informatics , Environmental sciences and some IT subjects like programming in C.

    The BSc Biotechnolog is a three-year degree. In the first two years you will tackle core subjects to ensure that you receive a solid grounding in the fundamentals. You will then specialise in the final year, making your choice from a wide range of options and research projects. Our biochemistry and biotechnology courses contain topics covering all aspects of the applied biochemistry and the biotechnology industry, such as intellectual property and patents, commercialising technology, and entrepreneurship, with lectures and case studies from biotechnology business leaders and academics.
