The Supreme Court setting aside the Telangana High court order, has said it’s compulsory to have knowledge of practical and theoretical at senior secondary level in biology science ,“MBBS primarily if not predominantly, involves prior knowledge- both theoretical and practical, of senior secondary level in biology or biological sciences.”
