This paper is based on the outcomes of a study, which sought to find out the preparedness of prospective teachers, under B.Sc. B.Ed. program, on the contents of science subject common to both PCM and CBZ groups. The sample for the study consisted of 40 student-teachers of B.Sc. B.Ed. program studying in Regional Institute of Education, NCERT, Bhopal. A test comprising of 20 items, including multiple choice and short answer types, based on some core concepts of science content of class VI to class X was administered to the subjects prior to their placement in different schools for internship in teaching. The results of the test revealed that the students need to possess enriched knowledge on science contents for successful delivery of lessons during internship, despite the fact that the program puts due emphasis on content preparation.
