For all such students who want to pursue a medical career, it is a no-brainer that Biology is the most important subject in Class 12th. This article will be a great help to you as we will share how to prepare for biology inter exam.
While preparing for biology subject in class 12th keep in mind that there’s scope of biology in biotechnology fields also alongside scope in medical fields.
Preparation of biology is not possible without knowing the syllabus of biology.
Syllabus of Biology for Inter subjects
As you know the syllabus of Biology paper. Theory paper for biology is of 70 Marks.
The biology paper is for 70 marks (theory) in CBSE and the following is the weight of the individual chapters.
- Reproduction 14 marks
- Genetics and Evolution 18 marks
- Biology and Human Welfare 14 marks
- Biotechnology and its Applications 10 marks and Ecology and
- Environment 14 marks.
Focus on preparing Notes and Diagrams
Preparing notes at the time of taking lecture or class would become very useful in a conceptually dependent subject like Biology. Not only does it help in the process of remembering the terms while writing, but it also helps in the student’s last-minute preparation strategies while revision.
A question might have a huge theoretical answer but this can be reduced to a simple explanative answer by drawing the necessary diagrams case in point – DNA structure, cell biology etc.
Chapters like Genetics and Biotechnology need to be understood well to make them easy. They go hand in hand and hence should be prepared together. The chapters that carry 14 marks each such as reproduction, ecology, and human welfare are broad which contain a lot of detailed subtopics and hence should be prepared first.
To Cramming or not Cramming?
Usually, students have made the presumption that biology is a subject contains more theoretical concepts hence should be crammed but Do not try to cram the subject as it will make you miss out on important points for the exam. Instead, prepare on a consistent basis of at least 2 to 3 weeks prior to the exam.
Take Productive Breaks
If you know your concentration is going to wonder of course it is better to take breaks in between topics. During these breaks try to recollect what was studied and/or try practicing diagrams and be resourcefully productive which is quite important for theoretical subjects like biology.
Previous year papers
It is a good practice to sit and write the previous year exam question papers and sample papers with a timer set to simulate the exam day. This will help in creating awareness of time management and will help relieve stress caused due to the availability of less time in answering theoretical long answer type questions.
The 30 marks of the Practical exam can be easily scored if one pays attention in the lab classes. Even though you will be assigned lab partners, it is important to experience firsthand as the final examination will only be that way.
Conclusion: Following the above points will help you immensely in scoring good marks in preparing for biology inter.
