Zo­ol­ogy in dis­tance mode

I have 50% marks in my bach­e­lor’s de­gree in life sci­ence. I wish to pur­sue my MSc (zo­ol­ogy) from any recog­nised univer­sity. Am I el­i­gi­ble for ad­mis­sion to an MSc course at the Univer­sity of Delhi? If not, where should I pur­sue my master’s in zo­ol­ogy, be it reg­u­lar or cor­re­spon­dence? Which are the cen­tres and recog- nised univer­si­ties that run MSc (zo­ol­ogy) cour­ses in Delhi and out­side Delhi?

-San­deep Ad­mis­sion re­quire­ments for MSc in zo­ol­ogy at the Univer­sity of Delhi (DU) is 50% or above marks in ag­gre­gate and 50% or above marks in zo­ol­ogy in BSc (hons) zo­ol­ogy, or BSc (hons) bi­o­log­i­cal sci­ence from the same univer­sity or other recog­nised univer­sity. The el­i­gi­bil­ity re­quire­ment for BSc life sciences is 60% or above marks in ag­gre­gate and 60% or above marks in zo­ol­ogy from DU or any other recog­nised uni­versi- ty. You will also have to write an en­trance test. Most univer­si­ties of­fer the MSc de­gree in zo­ol­ogy, the ba­sic el­i­gi­bil­ity cri­te­rion for which is 50% marks and above, so you can check the web­sites of those in the cities where you wish to study.

The fol­low­ing are some of the in­sti­tu­tions of­fer­ing master’s in zo­ol­ogy through dis­tance-learn­ing: An­na­malai Univer­sity Indira Gandhi Na­tional Open Univer­sity, New Delhi Kakatiya Univer­sity School of Dis­tance Learn­ing and I am an 18-year-old stu­dent. I am in­ter­ested in com­put­ers. Af­ter Class 12, I would like to do com­puter en­gi­neer­ing. But I have heard that this branch of en­gi­neer­ing is risky as the in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy sec­tor keeps fluc­tu­at­ing. I do not have any other aim in life. So, please help me choose my ca­reer. If I should take up com­puter sci­ence, then please guide me in se­lect­ing a col­lege.

-Asif Our lives are dic­tated by de­vices - the mo­bile, the iPod, lap­top, TV, etc, all pro­grammed by com­puter tech­nol­ogy. This is a field that is con­tin­u­ously grow­ing. So, if this is where your heart is, chances are that af­ter a good en­gi­neer­ing de­gree in com­puter sci­ence, IT or elec­tron­ics and com­mu­ni­ca­tions, you should be able to get a good place­ment with favourable prospects.

Com­puter sci­ence and IT is a field that de­mands pro­fes­sion­als with a va­ri­ety of com­puter-spe­cific qual­i­fi­ca­tions and jobs which vary ac­cord­ing to the dif­fer­ent re­quire­ments of IT com­pa­nies. If you have a strong ap­ti­tude for com­put­ing, pos­sess log­i­cal skills and are in­ter­ested in an IT ca­reer, you can take up a ca­reer in this field. To de­sign and de­velop com­puter soft­ware, you would re­quire to do a de­gree in com­put­ers or tech­nol­ogy such as a BE, BTech or a BCA which will pre­pare you to deal with devel­op­ment of ap­pli­ca­tions for dif­fer­ent op­er­at­ing sys­tems, as well as some of the new ar­eas such as e-com­merce.

If you are not too con­fi­dent about your abil­ity to han­dle such cour­ses, you can pur­sue di­ploma or cer­tifi­cate cour­ses at a com­puter in­sti­tute of­fer­ing train­ing in dif­fer­ent com­puter lan­guages and tech­nolo­gies like C, C++, Java, Cobol, UNIX and many oth­ers.
