But the expertise of a forensic professional is also used in civil cases for issues like proving the validity of a signature on a will, to a claim of the products liability, to find out whether an industry is complying with environmental rules or not. Forensic Science is broadly grouped into three Types: Medical, laboratory and field science.

  • Medical/Data medicine includes forensic pathology, psychiatry, psychology, forensic medicine and odontology (dentistry).
  • Laboratory Sciences include chemistry, biology, toxicology, ballistics, fingerprints, questioned documents and marks & impressions.
  • Field Sciences include crime scene investigation which incorporates areas such as fire and explosion scenes and clandestine drug laboratories.

B.Sc. Forensic Sciences Eligibility

Pass in class 12th with minimum 60% in aggregate in Physics, chemistry, zoology, botany, biochemistry, microbiology, B.Pharm., BDS or applied science.
