    Hi Ayushi,
    Well as it has been clearly stated by @Nikhlesh Mathur , to become a research scientist there is a long way to go about and so to mention in short, you would require a Bachelor degree, then a Masters in a specific stream that you are keen to create as a niche in, and then opting for the PhD program, this will lead you to the world of research and attain your career goals.
    As of now you need to keep a focus on your Bachelors and attaining reasonably good score in the same, so that you can get good institutes to pursue your Masters degree in later.
    All the Best!

    There is no sepearate course for becoming a Research scientist directly. It is a kind of work. So fFor becoming a Research scientist one of the methods is to do a post graduation in a science subject, say in Chemistry and then try to get a research oriented job in an industry. Research scientists one can become with any subject. Doing PhD would be helpful in getting the research oriented jobs.
