    Question Scientist or Wildlife Preservation

    What course should you take if you want to work as a scientist studying large fishes like dolphins, whales and sharks? or working in the field of wildlife preservation?

    It sounds like you are interested in marine biology or wildlife management. You can contact the Marine Biological Association of the UK for some information. I also found that the University of Plymouth offers a diving course.

    Default A good career

    I am not sure what education you will need but I have heard that wildlife preservation is an ever-growing field that will have a lot of demand for people to work in the field.

    I agree with Phylla and perhaps you might also be interested in Aquatic studies as well. As a start though, you need to make up your mind about what you really want.

    If, hopefully, you get into a US college, I guess you'll work out what to study as you'll have considerable flexibility in studying.
    If, unfortunately, you don't get into US or Hong Kong or Australia(on scholarships, don't be a burden on your family if they can't afford you) then apply in India.
    Now we have entered the realm of '3 Idiots(for the people outside sub-continent, it's an epic movie highlighting the problems of South Asian,or global, education).
    I hope that be the end of your 12th year, you would have decided whether you want to do science or engineering. Whatever you want to do, go for it. In India and Pakistan, one thing they say is that if you want o do science(Physics,math,chem,Bio) you could always do it after engineering. In the case of Physics, people will gove a lot of examples of people doing Electrical engineering and then switching to physics. They say that one must have a professionla degree as to secure a job. Although I am a student and amateur myself, I am against this dogma. Do physics if you want ot become a scientisti. DO engineering if you decide to do engineering. I hope that by the end of 12 year you would know which way to go. I guess it would be science, as it is more 'pure, thought-oriented' as compared to the 'commercialised engineering'(no offence). This is the reason I ask you to study more than just the school teaches you, so that you can find the subject that resonates with you.
    Assuming that you go for Physics in India, you do a four year degree(it can be a 2 year BSc + a 2 year MSc or it could be a 4 year BS or it could be a 5 year integrated MSc) Don't worry about the terminologies. You just have to study a 4 year course(which you can also do in three years if you work harder). After that you get to do research i.e. a PhD. A strong foundation in undergraduate physics will prepare you for research work. After your PhD, you could do further research as a post-doctoral researcher, or combine research with teaching.
    (TBC)
