Be it science or arts, the choice of subjects varies depending on the universities. For instance, an economics degree may be given as a BA by one university, but as a BSc by another. Biology, biochemistry, mathematics, physics, chemistry, social science, sport/exercise science, general science, earth science, computer science and the other fields of engineering are almost considered under sciences, universally.
A student can pursue Bachelor of Science (BSc) by taking any science subject as their major subject. Numerous colleges offer specialisations in major subjects such as chemistry, mathematics, zoology, botany, geology, physics, etc. One can go further and opt for a master's degree (MSc) in their selected subjects, after completion of graduation. To list the best colleges in science, we have decided to use the rankings of India Today 2018.
