Hello friend !!

Microbiology :

The name itself indicates that Microbiology is the study of Microscopic Organisms.

In detail it is the study of unicellular, multicellular, or acellular organisms.

Every subject has its significance in current world, so you can't expect any negative points if you take up Microbiology.

Apart from highlighting the plus points of studying Microbiology I can tell that it will have (/has) great scope in coming years.

If your interest is in studying related to Zoology and Physiology then Microbiology should not be in your path. Because Zoology is the study of animal biology where as Physiology is the study of all living organism's functions like cells, organs, molecules, etc,.

You can get into the Graduation courses related to either Zoology or Physiology or in both.
