I'm currently in the 12th Grade and the only course in Physics that the college that I am aiming for has is an integrated MSc degree. So in 5 years time, I will be walking out with an MSc degree in my hands with no intermediate BSc degree. What I wanted to know is whether I will be able to apply to any other university for another Master's degree. Also, how will having a degree affect my chances?

Can anyone inform me about the potential downfalls and the plus-points for going for an integrated degree?

You should be able to. A poster on here, who has a PhD in Physics, was also doing an MSc in Renewable Energy or something along the lines of that...

Sure, two MS degrees happen all the time. I've got two, my wife has two, and one of the former directors of NASA has like 6.

Two Ph.D.s, on the other hand, is very different, and is a symptom of a serious mental illness.

Michael Griffin, NASA administrator under the last administration, held multiple degrees, including I think 4 or 5 masters degrees.

Learning can be lifelong; at any rate, holding multiple degrees certainly didn't hold him back in any way. I'm sure the opposite was true.
