The All India Forensic Science Entrance Test (AIFSET-2021) is a national-level entrance test to enroll into the forensic science courses of its various participating universities. Candidates who are interested in pursuing a career in this field can apply to the course through this examination. The duration of the course is three years for the Bachelor of Science program.

About The Course

The Bachelor’s of Science: Forensic Science course is a three-year undergraduate program for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in Forensic Science. The course mainly trains students to understand and analyze a criminal activity and/or a crime scene. Forensic Science is mostly a crime-scene-based science, but graduates of forensic science are also consulted in civil cases such as proving the validity of a signature on a will or an important document. Professionals in forensic sciences are also consulted for any issue where the people involved could be cutting corners or performing illegal activities.


Forensic Science is broadly classified into three groups: Medical Science, Laboratory Science, and Field Science.

Medical Data Science includes forensic pathology, psychiatry, psychology, forensic medicine, and ontology.

Laboratory Sciences includes chemistry, biology, toxicology, ballistics, fingerprints, suspected documents, and marks & impressions.

Field Sciences include crime scene investigation which incorporates areas such as fire and explosion scenes and secret drug laboratories.
