Paper Pattern of 9th Class Biology for Punjab Board Students

As I mentioned there is a little difference of paper pattern in both boards. But firstly I will discuss the Punjab Board Paper Pattern. In Punjab board total marks of this subject are 60. There are Two Portions of this course including Subjective and Objective.
