The undergraduate degree that one chooses does not matter in order to be a radiologist (or any other type of physician for that matter)--he or she must simply take the appropriate premed classes, graduate from college, and be accepted into medical school. The classes one must take to get into medical school are the same no matter which kind of physician one wants to be. Generally, the premed requirements consist of a year of biology, a year of inorganic chemistry, a year of organic chemistry, calculus, english, and a year of physics. (Check with a premed advisor to make sure that these have not changed). Many people applying to medical school major in any of the sciences, but this is not a requirement.

Once in medical school, all of the classes and rotations are the same for everyone until the fourth year, when elective rotations can be taken. You would need to apply to radiology residency programs during that year of medical school and then complete a radiology residency (tpyically 4-5 years).

Hope this helps!

the grades you need for being a radiology is a c or above in science and other subject.

None. You don't become a radiologist by going to school. First you need to become a licensed medical doctor by going to a four year medical school, then you take one year as an intern and another 2-3 years to become a radiologist by training in a hospital
