Animal Physiology and Reproduction

As we can see from the above table, the maximum marks are allocated to the sixth unit- Animal Physiology and Reproduction, which is 20%. This is the topic where you need to concentrate more and spend more time. We can also get to know that questions with maximum no of marks can be expected from this unit.

It consists of a threefold program: the fundamental elements of reproductive biology necessary for the development of systems to enhance the efficiency of animal reproduction and productivity, the latest principles and strategies of reproductive biology.

Genetics and Evolution

After sixth unit, the next unit which carries 14% of weightage are Genetics and Evolution. It can be divided into two categories: phylogenetic; mutation and molecular population genetics; and evolution and development.

In the area of phylogenetic, articles of “tree-thinking” are included; the first describes how to read a phylogenetic tree while second discusses the implications of such trees about relatedness and the evolutionary advancement.


The next unit which is third highest regarding the percentage of 13% is Ecology.  It covers scientific analysis and study of interactions between organisms and their environment. It is a field that includes biology, geography and earth science. Ecology includes the study of interactions organisms have with each other, other organisms, and with abiotic components of their environment. Topics of interest to ecologists include the diversity, distribution, amount (biomass), and number (population) of particular organisms, as well as cooperation and competition between organisms, both within and among ecosystems.

The living thing

The Living thing carries 12% of weightage; therefore, we need to know something about this unit as well. The living thing includes features of living things like Movement, Respiration, Sensitivity, Growth, Reproduction, Excretion and Nutrition. These are the simple concepts and easy to understand and helpful in scoring.

Cell Structure and Function

Another unit which also carries 12% of weightage is the Cell Structural and Function. This unit includes the basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known living organism. A cell is the smallest unit of life that has a replication aspect, and cells are often called the “building blocks of life”. The study of cells is called cell biology.

These were the units with maximum no of weightage and the top five important topics to cover. Since there are other units as well, relying only on these would not be correct. You can refer other sources as well for detailed study. For more assistance and any query, contact BYJU’S.
