How to Prepare Class 11 Biology?



Biology of class 11 is very important for students aspiring to become doctor. In fact approx 50 percent of Biology questions asked in different Medical exams of India are from class 11.  It is very important for Medical exams like AIPMT, AIIMS and other state Medical entrance exam. Many students opt for Biology thinking it is an easy and interesting subject. But after seeing the vast syllabus of class 11, they tend to realize that it requires some hard work to get good marks in this subject. 


Syllabus of Class 11 Biology is completely different from that of class 10. Students opting for Biology after passing class 10 Board exam from CBSE often find it really difficult to cope with it initially. But students should not fear from it. Biology is a very interesting subject provided you invest some time in it. Some students get poor marks in it only because they take it for granted or sometime due to overconfidence. You should forget your past achievements and should concentrate only on studies and nothing else. (Also Read: How to Prepare Biology for AIPMT? )

How to study class 11 Biology?
Looking at the syllabus of class 11 Biology some students start fearing from this subject which ultimately leads to their downfall or poor academic performance. To excel in this subject you need to respect and love this subject. Without interest and dedications you cannot do well in it. Prepare notes of every chapter which will help you during final examination or Medical entrance exam. 

NCERT book of class 11 Biology is a very well written book. You should study NCERT book regularly and should note down important points carefully. Human Physiology, Plant Physiology and Cell are the most important units from class 11 Biology, not only for the final examination but also for the Medical entrance examinations. Pay special attention on the diagrams because they are frequently asked in the exam. 

Should you take tuitions for Biology?
I do not recommend tuitions for Biology of class 11. In fact I will suggest you to prepare Biology through self study. Consult your teacher to solve your problems. Attend Biology classes in school regularly. You will not need tuitions then at least for this subject. For preparing chapters like Biomolecules you must not hesitate in taking help from your teacher.

Why you should prepare notes of Biology? 
You must prepare notes of class 11 Biology. In class 12 while preparing for the Board exam, you will not get enough time to study class 11 Biology. In that situation your performance in the Medical entrance exam will be affected. But through notes you can quickly prepare maximum number of chapters for various competitive exams. Biology notes will also help you during final examination of class 11. 

Recommended Books for preparing class 11 Biology?
I will recommend you to go through NCERT book properly. Apart from it you can go through additional sidebooks or sample papers for better preparation.

    1. Your notes must include all important points in shortest possible manner so that you can revise later by just looking at them. Don't copy NCERT completely rather prepare notes in your own words in the form of points.

    1. NCERT Biology is very important and you cannot ignore any point in that as it is vital for NEET too. Go through Diagrams also. Giving an hour daily to Biology for self study is enough for better preparation of it.

    1. By having supreme command over NCERT only, one can get good rank in NEET. Majority of questions are asked from this book as NEET is conducted by CBSE. It is hard to predict how many questions one can solve? It depends completely on your preparation.

    1. Hi Bhuban, for mastering Biology you must go through NCERT thoroughly. Start reading Biology daily at least for couple of hours to get good marks in it. As your half yearly is over now, follow the above mentioned tips for the final exam.

    2. THANK YOU SIR !!!
      Sir does class 11% matters??

      Delete
    3. Though class 11 marks do not carry importance in class 12 board exam. Class 11 chapters lay foundation for the latter in subjects like Chemistry and Physics. Class 11 Biology is immensely important if you want to appear in NEET. In NEET, questions will be asked from both class 11 and class 12.

    1. When you complete learning any chapter in Biology, solve sample papers and objective questions to have strong command over it. Make notes of important topics. Revise learned chapters regularly to avoid forgetting them. Revision is key to succeed in Biology. In Class 11, 22 chapters are there and you must revise them frequently in order to obtain good marks.

  11. Sir! I am a class 11 student, I opted for PCB having great interest in biology but now the thing is... our biology teacher is not at all interested in teaching us.. she doesn't help us at all.. also i am not taking any coaching or tuition classes.

    1. Prashita, Biology is one subject in which you can do really well by going through NCERT book. If you will read this book regularly, it will help you tremendously. You can look for a tuition teacher now as well. Still, you have some time and units like Plant and Animal Physiology which are important for NEET can be done.

      Don't lose your confidence and interest in the subject, if you are good in Physics and Chemistry, concentrate on Biology and you can crack NEET easily.
