BSC Zoology course syllabus
The course is designed with on objective to provide the under graduate students with
basic knowledge of animal diversity, their evolution, classification, development and function
at cellular, organisms and molecular levels along with their interaction with environment.
Skill based courses are also included to increase employability of the students.
There shall be 12 (twelve) papers; 6 (six) each of theory and practical papers in
zoology (general course). 20% of marks of each theory and practical paper shall be evaluated
as Internal Assessment (IA). The distribution of courses and marks will be as follows:
