A candidate needs to study 5-6 subjects out of which 2 are Compulsory and 3 are Elective depending upon the Institute. There are limited numbers of combinations of subjects one can opt for depending upon the availability of choices in various Institutes.

The students are involved in completing pre-planned lab work based on text books and reading and adapting to well known theories. Students study an extensive range of courses and perform research in their choice of field. Bachelor of Science degree programs are mostly meant for those students who have a strong background in Mathematics and the Sciences. Whether a subject is considered a science or an art can vary between universities. For example, an economics degree may be given as a B.A. by one university but as a B.Sc. by another. Biology, Biochemistry, Maths, Physics, Chemistry, General science, Earth science and Computer Science are almost universally considered to be Sciences.
