    Is mathematics necessary at +2 level if I'm going to pursue B.Sc hons (Microbiology,Genetics,Biochemistry,Biotechnology) in future? Is it possible to replace any literature subject in place of mathematics in 12th?

    Is maths really necessary at +2 level to study bsc. hons(microbiology,genetics,biochemistry,biotechnol ogy)?

    I am quite weak in mathematics,i want to replace it with some other literature subject,if i replace it then will i be eligible to study these subjects from a good college or university,without maths i am expected to score between *80-90%,i am really confused,I had maths in 11 but now i am finding it difficult to continue in 12,what should i do?

    Dear friend,
    If you are interested in B.Sc hons after 12th and you want to opt Microbiology,Genetics,Biochemistry,Biotechnology
    in B.Sc hons then Maths is not necessary in 12th .You require maths only when you want to do B.Sc in maths
    at the maths you should have maths as main subject .As you said that you want to opt other subjects and all these
    subject does not have any linkage with maths.But my friend you can't replace maths with literature subject but
    there is one way that is you can opt Biology instead of maths.In 12 th out 7 subjects a student has to select 3 subject as
    a main subject physics,chemistry both these two subjects are compulsory and out maths,biology,computer science ,
    physical education,hindi a student has to select any two combination of subjects.So out of all these subjects you can choose any
    two subject of your choice.
    Thank you

    Hello friend,

    as you are doing 12th and you are facing difficulty in Mathematics then better not to take any 4th optional .
    Because there are 3 compulsory papers and you can take the 3rd optional as Biology if you are really interested in doing B.Sc hons(microbiology,genetics,biochemistry,biotechnol ogy) .

    How ever you can't take the mathematics related papers in your graduation like Oprational Reasearch or any Management papers as your optional.

    Also you can take other papers in stead you cover up the mathematics paper.
    Those are :
    Statistics,
    Logic Research,etc.

    All the Best!!!

    It is certainly not advisable to study a subject which you are not comfortable in. You must select the subjects based on your career objective. Normally the options available for the candidates are Physics, Chemistry, Maths or Physics, Chemistry, Biology. Candidates also have the option to select both Maths and Biology along with Physics and Chemistry. You will need to check with the institute where you are pursuing the course for the same. You can go for specialisation in microbiology, biochemistry, genetics even if you donot pursue maths in the 12th standard. For subjects like biotechnology having a minimum knowledge in maths is a must. So you should certainly not select the same amongst the options mentioned. If you are able to secure above 80% in 12th you do stand a chance to secure admission in reputed institutes.

    No it is not necessary for bsc. hons(microbiology,genetics,biochemistry,biotechnol ogy) it is better to take BiPC (Biology, physics and chemistry) it is very useful in Bsc honors,
    by taking BiPC in +2 directly you can apply it is a best option in present situation.
    Actually these course duration is four years.
    In every year two session will be there for example in first year like these will be there :

    First Half Session

    Organismal Biology (BI1004 20 credit points) and
    Chemistry 1A: Fundamentals (CM1013, 20 credit points)
    One other course of your choice worth 20 credit points

    Second Half Session

    The Cell (BI1507, 20 credit points)
    Chemistry 1B: Applications in the Real World (CM1506, 20 credit points) and
    One other course of your choice worth 20 credit points

    In every tear credits will be there .

    All the best..

    do not worry my friend mathematics is not compulsory in 12th class. if you feel you are weak in maths better opt for some other subjects.
    as you are interested in doing B.Sc in Microbiology,Genetics,Biochemistry,Biotechnology only science is important for you. so instead of taking maths you can prefer computer home science kind of subjects.
    ask for the options available in your school and choose one according to your interest.
    all the best

    Dear friend,
    If you are weak in mathematics then there is no need to take mathematics in 12th class.
    But if you want to do these courses in future then you have to have science side in 12th class.For B.Sc course you have to have a 12th pass certificate with science side.But in science side also there are two options ,either you can take biology or you can take maths or you can opt for both.Its your choice,but physics and chemistry are mandatory subjects.
    Hence if you don't want to take mathematics then you can go for PCB(physics ,chemistry ,biology).
    best of lk..
