Bachelor of Science [B.Sc] : 12 answered questions


Ques. What should I choose, a dual degree MSc program in BITS Hyderabad or some branch in NIT Raipur, or CSE in NIT Puducherry?

● Top Answer By Sakshi Gupta on 25 Oct 21

Ans. Choose BITS Hyderabad over NIT Raipur or NIT Puducherry. Here are some of the reasons for choosing this institute: They offer a beautiful campus with an enthusiastic student crowd. BITS Hyderabad has updated modern machinery and lab facilities. The placements definitely differ between the BITS and NITs. NIT Raipur is very old-fashioned in its approach towards studying and learning. Their faculties teaching method is old and prefers their students mugging up notes rather than learning and understanding something. BITS, unlike NIT Raipur, their teaching method is industry-oriented. You might think that going for a dual degree is better as IT companies only prefer CSE graduates. But nowadays this notion has changed as with big data and analytics creating a boom, more and more such companies visiting campuses and hiring people from all branches. Therefore it is suggested that you go for BITS Hyderabad, where you will grow and learn in a much more competitive environment. Your vision will be broadened.Read more

Ques. What happens when I fail all of the subjects in a B.Sc. Hons. at WBSU?

● Top Answer By Sakshi Gupta on 20 Oct 21

Ans. No one has ever failed in honors in all the subjects. Most students tend to fail in chemistry, but this also varies a lot. Let me discuss some of the possible reasons, which may answer your question. Failed to Qualify for Honours: If you score below 40% in your honors subject, chances are you will lose it. In this situation, you can either try to repeat another year or proceed with B.Sc. General. Qualified for Honours but failed in any/both general subjects: This happens when you get a score lower than 25% in the general subjects. For this, the board conducts a supplementary exam, passing which you will be able to continue without any year loss. Failing in both Honours and General subjects: This scenario is not seen very often. But if you fail in every subject, you have to start again from the beginning, next year. If you fail consecutive years, then the college might give you a Termination Certificate. Finally, it is really important to know that a student has to complete his or her graduation within 5 years, failing which your registration will be canceled.Read more

Ques. Which is better for a B.Sc Allahabad University or ECC?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 08 Oct 21

Ans. Both Allahabad University and ECC are very good institutes and choosing one among these two can be a very difficult decision. If you are planning to pursue B.Sc, then there are some points which you should consider before choosing a college. ECC is an autonomous institute and the academic environment and course curriculum in B.Sc (Maths) are much better than Allahabad University.  AU has a lot of politics involved among the students throughout the year and this creates a lot of disturbance in the academic atmosphere.  If you are interested in studying in the Biology field, then choosing Allahabad University will be a better option. You will enjoy a lot of advantages including access to modern laboratories and central library, interaction with research students, and many other things.  If you are interested in taking admission in B.Sc (Maths), then choosing ECC will be the right option and if you are interested in taking admission in B.Sc (Biology), then choosing Allahabad University will be the right option. Read more
