IGNOU BSC Courses & Syllabus : The total credits is 96 which needed to obtain the Bachelor of Science (BSC) in minimum three years with 32 credits per year. For earning 96 credits, a student has to opt for courses from three categories. 1) Foundation Course (2) Elective Courses and (3) Application-Oriented Courses as given here under :

1) Foundation Courses (24 Credits)
2) Elective Courses (56 Credits or 64 Credits from Chemistry, Life Sciences, Mathematics and Physics (At least 25% of the total credits in Physics, Chemistry & Life Science have to be obtained from Laboratory Courses)
3) Application Oriented Courses (16 or 8 Credits)

In addition to these courses, all BDP students have to study an awareness course on environment entitled -‘An Introduction to the Environment’ (NEV1).

How to Choose Courses for Bachelor of Science (B.SC) : In order to complete the B.Sc. degree within the minimum period of 3 years, learners are allowed to take courses worth 32 credits in each year. Elective courses worth a minimum of 8 credits and a maximum of 48 credits in any one of the four Science disciplines can be opted. Learners can choose 56 or 64 credits of elective courses from a minimum of two Science disciplines and a maximum of four Science disciplines. Of the total credits opted in elective courses in Physics, Chemistry and Life Sciences disciplines, at least 25% must be from the laboratory courses.

B.Sc (Major) : To obtain B.Sc (Major), the total number of credits to be taken in elective courses in the respective disciplines is as follows, subject to the condition that you cannot take more than 48 credits in any Discipline:
