    Hi Amit,
    Well the difference might be slight in case of the curriculum, but when implemented the two courses will differ in the complete approach and this is the reason why it is been advised to go for a regular course rather than a correspondence course. Same ways, I would mention that if you plan to make a career on the basis of this particular degree, then try to opt for the regular degree from a good institute.
    All the best!

    Doing M.Sc in Distance Education/Online education (not in open university) is same to regular course. Because the syllabus, pattern, practicals are equal to these two. There is no difference between these two. You can write NET, GATE exam also under choosing Distance education. Only problem is in regular system you can study systematically. In distance you have to concentrate more than studying in regular.

    SInce MSc is more research oriented, it would be better to do it in regular mode. It involves a lot many experiments and laboratory work which will be lost in distance education. Also regular mode MSc will open up gates for Phd for you after which you can becomes lecturer in very good college.
