The curriculum framework has allotted four periods per week for 12 biology. Even though the academic calendar is made up of 40 weeks, the syllabus is prepared for 34 weeks (136 periods) creating a wider chance for teachers to use about six extra weeks for tasks of helping students that need further assistance and even for revision and student
projects.
