Syllabus and Subjects Bachelor of Science [B.Sc] (Biology):

  • 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 courses during B.Sc. program. Some of such important courses are listed below:
