In any normal household, if a child happens to pick biology rather than computer science in their higher secondary, then the thought of having a doctor in the house runs through the mind of every parent. But this is effectively not the only option for bio students, who might have an aversion towards computer science or maybe a bigger affinity to biology. There are plenty of career options out there for biology students, be it in the realm of biology or outside it.
Let us discuss a few of the many options.
