  • The students have to select any Three Disciplines for study as per their interest in which they want to obtain their bachelor’s degree in Science.
  • They have to make a conscious decision of choosing the Disciplines they want to study since the Disciplines once chosen in first semester will have to be studied in the subsequent semesters also.
  • In each semester, the students have to choose 4 courses in all from different categories of courses. The courses given in pairs need to be taken in pairs only.
  • Every course offered by the Mathematics discipline, which does not require Laboratory work, is a single course of 06 Credits which includes 01 Credit worth of Tutorials.
  • Do not repeat courses which you have opted in earlier semester.

  1. Sir I have admissioned in 2019 n I was suppose to have my 1st year exam on 2020 June but due to Corona exam was cancelled n rumour was there that everyone was promoted.
    I still emailed IGNOU n Evan called the centre but I didn’t get any feedback.
    Lately I am supprised as IGNOU secretly released its exam date n exam form on this 2021 January to February
    Which my IGNOU app didn’t show or informed me..
    So what should I do?

  2. If I take bscg in botany, zoology and geology, will I be awarded life sciences major? Which disciplines to choose for life sciences major?

  3. If I have chosen botany,zoology& chemistry for 1st year,now can I choose mathematics for second year

  4. i joined in BSCG course on february 2021 , received some of the books but unable to get the syllabus that means what have to study for the forthcoming semester exam, so please provide the study material

  5. Sir/Ma’am I have enrolled in BSCG with subjects ZOOLOGY, PHYSICS and CHEMISTRY in first year. Can I eliminate physics or chemistry as I wants to do major in zoology
