The Shivalik Advantage
To pursue agriculture courses after 12th, candidates must clear class 12th in Science stream with minimum 45%-50% aggregate marks. The admission would be solely merit based on the marks gained in the 12th examination. For online certification courses, candidates could apply on the website of the particular course providers and then pay the course fees. On the other hand, admission for certification courses in college is accomplished in an organized manner; no entrance test would be conducted
B.Sc ( Hons ) Agriculture is basically a 4-year UG professional course that is administered by ICAR. B.Sc. graduates can land a decent paying job with a salary ranging from INR 2 LPA to INR 8 LPA. The students of this course would study a broad range of subjects including soil sciences, agronomy, horticulture (fruit science & vegetable), plant entomology, breeding and genetics, animal sciences, plant pathology, plant biochemistry, extension education, basics of biotechnology, agriculture economics, etc.
M.Sc (2-year Master degree course) in different Agriculture programs can be taken up by candidates who possess a BSc degree in horticulture/ agriculture/ forestry from a recognized university with the required qualifying marks. Obtaining a master’s degree from an Indian university or abroad will open up more job avenues in the agriculture domain.
Majorities of colleges and universities provide admission to candidates in B.Sc ( Hons ) Agriculture courses based on entrance exams. But, some universities may also provide admission to candidates depending on their 12th class scores. So, the admission is either based on merit score or score off entrance exam. Apart from accreditation of the institute, candidates should check their admission process, eligibility criteria, fees, choice of disciplines before pursuing the B.Sc. course in Agriculture.
