Biology is a core subject in the RBSE class 12 science stream and is essential to master for pursuing a career in medical science. Biology also comes in handy for those seeking to venture into environment, agriculture or nutrition science.

Biology is a fascinating yet challenging subject that involves memorizing a lot of scientific names and concepts. Biology also demands a bit of creativity from students as drawing diagrams and flow charts is important to score good marks. However, firstly students should know the correct RBSE class 12 Biology syllabus and examination scheme. Not all topics carry the same weightage in RBSE 12 biology board exams.

On that note, we bring you the new and revised RBSE Class 12th Biology syllabus 2023 for theory and practical examinations 2023 in PDF format.
