    PCM stands for Physics,Chemistry & Mathematics subjects while PCMB stands for Physics,Chemistry, Mathematics & Biology.
    It depends on the student what combination he/she wishes to take.Though PCMB is quite a tough task to handle but still students opt for it in view of keeping open both engineering and medical options.But if one has pre decided what to do after 12th i.e engg. or medical then one should opt accordingly.For pure medical PCB is preferred while for pure engg. PCM is preferred.
    Select well....

    PCB means physics ,chemistry and biology..which is a state level course..
    and PCMB is physics, chemistry, maths and biology..which is central level exam..the difference between them is in PCB you can just go for the science related feilds and in PCBM you can go for the maths related feilds like engineering even...

    Hi,
    PCM is Physics,Chemistry,Maths as your major subject in high school.PCMB has Biology in it.With pCMB combination you can either go for medicine or engineering line.PCM students can only appear for engineering exams.

    PCM means physics, chemistry and math as the mainn subjects in 12th.

    PCMB means physics ,chemistry and bio in main and math is side subjects of candidates.

    For taking admission in some institute they provides that bio candidates can take admission if maths are their side subjects in 12th.

    hi frnd

    P-physics

    C-chemistry

    B-Biology

    M-Maths

    these are the notations and their meanings

    for engineering you need compulsorily PCM , you can also have a B with it.

    for medical sciences you need PCB

    hii, pcm stands for physics,chemistry ,maths.usuall done to go to Engineering stream in top colleges of india like the IIT and NITs.
    pcmb stands for physics,chemistry, maths and biology to got the medical stream, like AIIMS its the premier institute of india for medical sciences.you can also do the cet to go best medical colleges like mmc,bmc,
    kims,msrit.

    PCM stands for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics by selecting this you can be apply for engineering fields
    And PCBM stands for Physics,Chemistry,Maths and Biology as a subjects of a candidate by selecting these subjects a candidate can go or try for medical field after 12

    Re: What is the meaning of PCB and PCMB in General Science stream?

    PCB stands for Physics, Chemistry and Biology. PCMB means Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology. Medical stream is provided with lot of opportunities for those who have passed PCB. After completing plus two with PCMB, you can choose engineering stream. Candidates who have completed PCMB in plus two can write entrance examinations. For writing medical entrance, a minimum of 60% marks is required for PCB. For engineering entrance, a minimum of 60% is required for PCM. Entrance examination is meant for the aspirants who are seeking admissions to various professional courses. Plus two level questions from the science stream will be mainly asked for the entrance examinations. Regular degree courses are also available for those who have finished plus two in general science.

    pcb is physics chemistry and biology this field directs your carrer in medical science.

    pcmb is physics, chemistry, maths and biology. this option directs you to two streams i.e medical field and engineering field.

    PCM stands 4 physics,chemistry,maths.Alongwth it u have to choose 1 optional subject.But PCMB stands 4 physics,chemistry,maths,biology,then no optional sub will b left 4u to opt.I think it will b difficult 2 manage wth PCMB but then u will have a lot many career opportunities,so go 4 it.

    hii,,

    P:PHYSICS.
    C:CHEMISTRY.
    M:MATHS

    PCM IS NEEDED TO GET INTO THE ENGINEERING, COURSE FOR GETTING INTO ENGINEERING YOU NEED TO WRITE VARIOUS EXAMS LIKE THE IIT JEE TO ENTER INTO THE IITS.
    AIEEE TO GET INTO TOP COLLEGES LIKE THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY.CET TO GET INTOP COLLEGES OF THE KARNATAKA.


    P:PHYISCS.
    C:CHEMISTRY.
    M:MATHS.
    B:BIOLOGY.

    TO GET INTO THE MEDICAL STREAM YOU NEED TO HAVE GOOD MARKS IN THIS SUBJECTS.ALSO YOU NEED TO WRITE THE AIIMS EXAM TO GET INTO THE AIIMS COLLEGE , CET TO GET INTO TOP COLLEGES LIKE THE MYSORE MEDICAL COLLEGE,BANGALORE MEDICAL COLLGE,YENAPOYA MEDICAL COLLEGE.

    It depends on the student what combination he/she wishes to take.Though PCMB is quite a tough task to handle but still students opt for it in view of keeping open both engineering and medical options.But if one has pre decided what to do after 12th i.e engg. or medical then one should opt accordingly.For pure medical PCB is preferred while for pure engg. PCM is preferred.

    HIeeeeeeeeeeee


    PCM means physics, chemistry and mathematics while PCMB physics, chemistry stands for, which stands for Mathematics and Biology.

    Combining the student what he / she wishes to have depends on.

    For the PCMB enough to handle a tough job, but still the view of students in both engineering and medicine to keep open the option to choose.

    But if a pre-decided after the 12th to the engineering. Or Medicare should choose one accordingly.


    For the pure engineering PCM is the choice. for pure medical PCB.

    Re: What is the meaning of PCB and PCMB in General Science stream?

    FRIEND,

    There are three types of Streams after completing 10th class and those are:

    1)SCIENCE STREAM
    2)COMMERCE STREAM
    3)ARTS STREAM


    And in SCIENCE STREAM also you can take subjects which will decide your future and those subjects are:

    1)PHYSICS
    2)CHEMISTRY
    3)MATHS
    4)BIOLOGY


    So if you take PHYSICS,CHEMISTRY,MATHS(PCM) as your subjects in the 11th and 12th class then you will be doing engineering or other fields and But not Medical.

    And if you have taken PHYSICS,CHEMISTRY,MATHS,BIOLOGY(PCMB) then you can join MEDICAL FIELD also because it is a criteria for you to have Biology in 12th class to be eligible to appear in the Entrance exams.

    GOOD LUCK.
