List of WBCHSE Biology Practicals | Biology Practical Syllabus


The HS Biology exams are right around the corner, and so we are publishing the list of WBCHSE biology practical experiments and demonstrations. The west bengal board biology lab syllabus is published along with the classroom curriculum, which is available as PDF files from the  official website of WBCHSE

Today we will present you the list of biology practicals for classes XI and XII in the west bengal board. Any student of that board can use this curriculum to understand how much they need to learn, and what will be expected from them at the practical exams. Some schools choose to skip over some of these experiments and practices; using this list of practicals you can see which you are missing and practice using Labkafe’s Laboratory Tutorials

WBCHSE Biology Practicals 1

The biology lab curriculum for the Higher Secondary level at west bengal board consists of a total of 34 practicals, 24 in class 11 and 19 in class 12. Among these, each year there should be 60 periods to turn out 30 marks worth of tests ‒ 20 for experiments and spotting, and 5 marks each for project and viva. 

Let us go into the list of WBCHSE biology lab practical experiments and exercises.
