UP Board Class 12 Biology Syllabus 2020-2021

The UP Board has released a new revised syllabus for class 12 Biology curriculum. Previously, there were two papers for Biology, which included Botany and Zoology and the syllabus was vast as students had to cover topics from both class 11 and 12. However, as per the new curriculum, students have to write only one paper, which is solely based on the UP board syllabus of Class 12th. For the academic year 2020-21, the UP Board syllabus has been reduced by 30% for Class 12. Find here the revised syllabus for 2020-21 UP Board Class 12 Biology Syllabus.
