Since the Stone Age man has come into existence he has been finding new ways to sustain life. No man knew what to do right away. It was a process of evolution. He used to live in caves, knew he had a stomach to feed so hunting of the other organisms begun, gained knowledge of protecting his private and sexual organs which appeared extra sensitive than the other organs so started covering them with leaves, understood the importance of community and unity was much needed apart from the individual life.
There were so many things that the first men on earth recognized were necessary for survival and eventually progressed. It couldn’t have been without their inventions that lead to the commencement of advancement in technology and the lifestyle of the people today. A Major discovery also included the food items. No one knew which foods to consume and which not, which were edible and which were not.
Many Stone Age men would have died trying and testing various foods just in order to prove they were edible enough for the coming generations that have been discovered from the past till date might have gone through various processes of testing and resulting in many people dying by consuming some poisonous or harmful products. Because of all this, it became necessary to study the human body from the inside which resulted in the invention of the subject of biology.
Biology is known as the science of life. It is the study of living beings and the vital processes they go through. This field of science deals with all the physicochemical and psycho-chemical changes and processes a living being is going through. Modern principles of biology for example chemistry, physics, medicine- are integrated with those of biology in areas such as biochemistry, biomedicine, and biophysics. The word “biology” is derived from the Greek words “bios” (meaning life) and “logos” (meaning “study”).
In general, biologists study the structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, and distribution of living organisms. The advancement of technology in biology has helped scientists to perform tasks such as develop better quality medicines and treatments for diseases, understand how a changing environment might affect plants and animals, produce enough food items for an expanding human population, and predict how eating new food or sticking to a new exercise regimen might affect our bodies. Biology can also include mathematics.
Hence, Biology can be considered to be one of the most important subjects as it is the study of all organisms on earth. Aristotle, a scientist is considered to be the father of biology due to his advanced contributions in the respective field. Aristotle’s Zoology (the scientific study of behavior, structure, physiology, classification and distribution of animals) and the classification of species was his greatest contribution to the history of biology, the first known attempt to classify animals into groups according to their behavioral patterns and, most prominently, by the differences and similarities between their physiologies.
Science Subject stream
The Science subject stream is the most preferred stream among students of this new era. Many children in India pursue science in recent times at their 11th and 12th standards as soon as they complete their basic education till the 10th std.
Most students aspire to become doctors, scientists, teachers, professors, engineers, etc, and biology and mathematics are the most preferred subjects out of all. Being a doctor is many childrens’ dream since a very young age hence medicine is one of the most difficult and preferred courses in India and has better job prospects hence students willingly follow it.
A very important examination when it comes to pursuing MBBS, BDS, or dental college programs is the NEET also known as the National Eligibility Entrance Test previously also known as the All-India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT). This is an entrance examination which helps to decide which students can really qualify for the above courses.
The NEET exam is usually a three-hour long exam comprising of 180 questions in total based on the subjects of physics, chemistry, and biology along with English language papers. Any candidate can appear for the NEET exams as many times as they wish to. The minimum passing marks for qualifying in the examination are 50% that means the student needs to score at least 50% in his exams in order to qualify for the above courses
The NEET exam syllabus for biology for the following is:
- heterogeneity in living world structural organization in animals and plants.
- locomotion and movement.
- neutral control and coordination.
- plant physiology.
- animal kingdom.
- Human physiology.
- Digestion and absorption.
- Structural organization of animals.
- Reading an exchange of gases.
- Excretory products under elimination.

These are all the topics or questions that the NEET Biology paper majorly depends upon hence it is aimed to be very crucial for anyone to study these.
The answers to these questions can be easily found in many famous answer books in the market such as NCERT books, RS Aggarwal books, etc.
They are available for both the CBSE and SSC boards and can be easily understood from the above books
