The results of the first and second semester students are really encouraging in Chemistry with 100% students securing first class in first semester (highest marks: 93) and 75% students securing first class in second semester (highest marks: 85). Two seminars have been conducted in collaboration with Zoology and History department in the academic year 2018-19.

Outcome

The scope of Chemistry as a subject in B.Sc. is enormous. A chemistry student can opt for higher studies. Further there is scope for both research and industrial jobs as chemists. Particularly this subject holds a strong ground in research work as it covers a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary subjects like zoology, botany, physiology, biochemistry, forensics, pharmaceutical science, medicinal chemistry, environmental science to name a few.
