Hi friends, today we are going to discuss you about the latest Syllabus of Class XI BioTechnology Syllabus. As you know very well that Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has its own curriculum and they hold the supreme authority to change it further for the benefit of students.
So it’s always a wise decision to keep an eye on what happening around with the subject you are going to learn. This year CBSE made little bit changes in class XI BioTechnology Syllabus. Let us have a look at the updated CBSE class XI BioTechnology Syllabus for the academic year 2017-18
