M. Sc. (5-year Integrated) 

This is a five-year integrated M. Sc. program in chemistry. The programme in the first two years is common to all science students, where they get a through exposure to all the basic branches of science. The students move to the School of Chemistry from the third year. 

Admission
 
Minimum qualification: This program is open to all students who have completed/expect to complete the 10+2 stage with at least three of the four subjects (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology) as their optionals with a minimum of 60% at the 10+2 level. 
 
Selection: Based on a written test conducted at various examination centers all over the country. The written test contains objective questions in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology at the 10+2 level.
