First do a b.sc in Physics.
Then in Msc you can choose Astrophysics as your subject.

You have not mentioned what you are doing now. If you have not done B.TECH, i mean just passed 12th then do B.TECH from good college and then apply for isro.

This is the branch of astronomy related with the study of physical and chemical Properties of distant bodies(Space Bodies).

To become an Astrophysicist you need to have Physics and Maths as a compulsory But Not exactly compulsory but you should persue them in order to become astro+physicist.

After you 10+2 Exam

If you want to go for Experimental Astronomy then you can opt for Engineering field
and

if you want to go for Theoretical astronomy then you can opt for Science stream.

After you graduation, You should go for JEST exam i.e Joint Entrance Screening Test . Basically JEST is an Exam for Admissions for Ph.d in Physics in Different Indian Institute

List of Participating Institutes for JEST Exam. jest Exam held once in a Year.

After Clearing JEST you can opt for IIA or Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences or Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad etc..

Now after these steps You will be called as An astrophysicist.

If you have any More query You can clear your doubts in IIA site Solved Queries

I want to do EXPERIMENTAL ASTROPHYSICS.

I'm planning to do my Bachelor's (undergraduate) in India, at a TOP university, and it's going to be some sort of engineering course.
I plan to specialize as an Astrophysicist in my Master's (postgraduate) in America, as M.Sc. Astrophysics.
Currently, I'm in grade 10, and I'm confused on what curriculum I should join for 11th and 12th. ( SSC, ICSE, CBSE, IGCSE, IBDP, etc.)

I would really appreciate it if somebody could give me advice, on what curriculum is best for getting into highest Indian Top Universities, OTHER THAN State Board (which I'm not keen on doing, because I have a very bad memory and prefer understanding and writing rather than mugging up everything.), and also what course I should take in Engineering for my Bachelors, and a very highly reputed Indian university I could apply for.
I would also like to know the best universities in America (USA), to study M.Sc Astrophysics, but it's okay if you don't mention it.

Thank you so much, whoever will give me an answer to this question.
Feel free to email me instead at [email protected]

Thanks alot people!
