I want to do my UG degree in U.S.A.



I am studying in Std IX. I want to do my UG degree in U.S.A. What exams should I do for this and from when should I start coaching for it?



For an UG course in USA, you’re required to takes SAT I (Scholastic Assessment Test) and TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). In addition to these, some universities also have ACT (American College Testing) and SAT II Subject Tests. Every university has its own minimum requirements and scores with respect to standardized tests.



 SAT-I is a three-hour reasoning test, primarily multiple-choice test that measures verbal and mathematical reasoning abilities that develop over time. Mastering vocabulary is a really easy way to increase your SAT score, you should pay particular attention to developing language and writing abilities. Maths questions are of Std X level, but application-oriented. So get your concepts clear now.



SAT-II consists of subject tests. These one-hour tests measure your knowledge of particular subjects and your ability to apply the knowledge. You may take the coaching while studying in Std XI.

Please suggest some major or field of study that will get me a well-paid job in India if I get the degree from USA.



Biochemistry career opportunities can be virtually limitless; private research institutions, hospitals, government organizations all hunt for good biochemists. Their goals are usually similar – to research, experiment, conduct trials and find cures for diseases like cancer and AIDS and even mental disorders.



Mainly, there are three specializations. In medicine, they identify the causes of disease, understand their effect on the body in chemical terms and try and isolate the indicators that signal impending disease. This requires tracking chemical changes through normal bodily functions like muscle contraction, respiration, etc. in the field of agriculture, biochemists are developing cultivation innovations, improving pest control and optimizing crop storage. Another popular field is nutrition, where a biochemist’s job is to investigate the effect of various minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, fats and vitamins on the human body.



It is always better to specialize but keep in mind that almost all the specializations require good research technique and the ability to combine and analyze information.
