    No.You may not chose biology in 12th for doing B.tech in biotechnology...If you can give the engineering entrance exams...through counselling you can get Biotechnology...

    Re: Is it necessary to take biology in 12th to get admission for B.Tech(Biotechnology) course?

    Yes, it is mandatory to have Biology for doing B.Tech in Biotechnology, because most of the prestigious colleges want students to study both Biology and Mathematics for B.Tech.

    Institutes like All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi accept candidates who are +2 pass-outs with Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
    Mathematics is not a requirement here.

    There are Colleges including the most prestigious ones like IITs, which provide dual or integrated courses like B.Tech and M.Tech which is a 5 years programme.
    One has to have Biology and Mathematics both, along with Physics and Chemistry.

    IIT Delhi, Madras, Kharagpur provide such dual courses., some of which are also 5 year programmes.
    Apart from IITs, there are other prestigious institutes like University of Rajasthan, Punjab University and Osmania University, etc.

    All the institutes mandatorily require a student to study Biology for the same.

    Hello friend,

    Yes it mandatory to have Biology or related subjects like Zoology,Botany etc etc in your intermediate classes to take admission in BE Biotechnology or any other related subjects.

    Almost all engineering colleges in India ask for a minimum of 50% aggregate in your 12th or equivalent board from a recognized board and along with that you need to clear the entrance exams conducted by the respective universities like


    Kerala Engineering Entrance Exam - KEAM
    Karnataka Engineering Entrance exam - Karnataka CET
    All India Engineering Entrance Exam - AIEEE
    Maharashtra Engineering Entrance Exam - MHT-CET
    West Bengal Engineering Entrance Exam - WBJEE
    IIT Joint Entrance Examination - IIT JEE
    Uttar Pradesh Engineering Entrance Exam - UPTU SEE
    Delhi Common Engineering Entrance Exam - DCEE
    BIrla Institute of Technology Engg. Entrance Exam BITSAT
    VIT University Engineering Entrance Exam VITEEE
    Punjab Technical University (PTU) CET

    Colleges in India for BE Biotechnology


    1. School of Life Sciences University of Hyderabad Hyderabad

    2. School of Biotechnology JNU New Delhi

    3. Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology Trivandrum Kerala

    4. Institute of Chemical Technology Mumbai Maharashtra

    5. University School of Biotechnology Guru Gobind Singh Indraprasta University New Delhi

    6. Animal Biotechnology Research centre National Dairy Research Institute Karnal, Haryana

    7. Department of Molecular Biology & Genetic Engineering

    GB Panth University of Agriculture and Technology Pantnagar, Uttarakhand

    8. Department of Biotechnology University of Kashmir Srinagar, J&K

    9. School of Biotechnology Banaras Hindu University Varanasi, UP

    10. Department of Microbiology and Biotechnology MS University of Baroda Vadodara, Gujarat

    Dear friend

    It is compulsory to have biology in class 11th and 12th for applying B.tech(Biotechnology) course, because now a day most of the colleges wants there students to read both biology and maths especially the Biotechnology students and it will be also easy to score good marks if you fundamental or you foundation about biology is strong.

    Thank you.

    "Many great scientists never went to school,that does not mean their basics are not strong."

    There are colleges that accept students who do not have biology subject in 12th.
    hence, it is not NECESSARY....

    but when you know you want to do biotechnology.....then it is PREFERRED to have biology subject in earlier stage

    dear friend

    ---yes, it is necessary to take biology in 10+2 for B.E biotechnology because the basic eligibility criteria for doing B.E biotechnology are as follows:

    1.you must have passed your 10+2 with minimum 50% marks.

    2.your subjects in 10+2 must be physics , chemistry and biology.

    3.you must compete any of the engineering entrance examinations like AIEEE, IIT-JEE ,and state engineering examinations.


    good colleges for biotechnology

    1. School of Life Sciences University of Hyderabad Hyderabad

    2. School of Biotechnology JNU New Delhi

    3. Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology Trivandrum Kerala

    4. Institute of Chemical Technology Mumbai Maharashtra

    5. University School of Biotechnology Guru Gobind Singh Indraprasta University New Delhi
