    My son is doing B.Tech in Electronics & Communication and expecting very high marks in the final exam. He wants to do MS in Astrophysics. Can he think of getting admission for the PG program in Astrophysics since he has not studied Physics as main subject though a good portion is covered for his Engineering degree? If he can get admission, which all the universities he can try & the fees? Can he think of any scholarship?

    Kindly favour me with your reply.
