Biology is all about the study of life, its functions, classifications, evolutions and all other living organisms around us. The best way to understand the concepts covered is to refer to the West Bengal Board Class 11 Biology Syllabus. The main concept of studying Biology is to know about ourselves, body parts, nature around us, etc. It is a vast subject which is composed of many branches, including Anatomy, botany, evolution, zoology, etc. WBCHSE Class 11 Biology Syllabus gives an overview of the topics and concepts taught under the subject for the current academic year, so it is the best resource to refer at the start of an academic year. Referring to the syllabus helps to prepare an effective study plan.
Biology is one of the most challenging and mandatory subjects in Science, which requires hard work. WBCHSE Class 11 Biological Sciences Syllabus is well-prepared by the subject experts under the guidance of the State Board of Education which provides adequate knowledge about each essential topic. WBCHSE Class 11 Biological Sciences Syllabus includes- Structure and function of a cell, plant physiology, human physiology, Diversity of living organisms and lot more.
We at BYJU’S provide the syllabus for WBCHSE Class 11 Biological Sciences along with the mark-wise weightage for every chapter so that students can have a good idea about the pattern of the exam.
