B.Sc Biology Syllabus and Subjects:

B.Sc Biology Course is 3 years of an undergraduate program, which is divided into 6 semesters. Below is the tabulation of all the B.Sc Biology syllabus, which most of the colleges follow in their curriculum.

B.Sc Biology Syllabus

B.Sc Biology is constructed from 6 semesters with a time span of 6 months each, collectively making 3 years. In those 3 years, a student has to go through theory subjects as well as practical. There are class tests, practicals, assignments, seminars, projects, and theory lectures. Biology is a diverse subject that covers many biological aspects of living organisms. Students have to study several important subjects during B.Sc. biology course.
