ICSE Class 9 Biology Syllabus introduces the students to various basic biological topics. Understanding them is of utmost importance as they form the foundation of several higher-level Biology topics. The syllabus of Class 9 Biology is designed in a way that the ICSE Class 9 students get acquainted with all the important and basic Biology topics while developing their analytical, practical, theoretical and observational skills.
The updated ICSE Syllabus for Class 9 Biology is given below in the table.
