Sruthi’s Answer

Hi Samyuktha! It's interesting to hear about your passion for becoming a forensic scientist! My advice for you is to try to approach some persons who are working as forensic scientists and know about their journey in college and finding a job. By doing this, you can understand the practical aspects of it. Since I'm a dentist I know a little information about forensic dentistry. For forensic dentistry, Gujarat university offers a master's degree which is a valuable one. If I remember correctly, you do have entrance exams for admission and should have a bachelor's degree in dental surgery.
