It looks like you have physics chemistry Mathematics and biology in your 10+2 and you have given your major focus on physics ,chemistry and mathematics now you are confused that what should you do for having at least passing marks in biology so I will suggest you to go with the previous year question papers now because you don't have much time for preparation because exams are near so  you can do previous year question papers ,most of the question will be repeated in the coming exam.
