Candidates with both graduation and postgraduation degree in a relevant field of study are eligible for the B.Ed programme offered by various reputed institutions/universities. However, the graduates must have scored 50% to 55% in their qualifying degree exam and the postgraduates have to secure at least 55% in their respective qualifying degree exam to be eligible to apply for various B.Ed entrance tests.
Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) is a professional Graduation Degree which aids students to qualify for work as a teacher in schools. For Science Teachers, Bachelor of Science Education is a degree awarded to students who accomplish the four to five-year course of study in the field of science (in biology, chemistry, physics, and math) with major Educational courses. It is the merger of degrees in science and education courses (B.Sc + B.Ed. = B.Sc.Ed.). Even though B.Sc and B.Ed. are two different degrees, they must be done together. There are very fewer universities that offer this course because it has a necessity of association between the Faculty/School of Science and that of Education, to assure that the teacher not only can work in an education association but also in an industrial area related to science.
