CBSE Class 10 Science Syllabus 2022-23

CBSE Class 10 Science Syllabus 2022-23: While the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been conducting the board examinations for the previous session, the classes for 10th and 12th standards for the new session have also begun in CBSE schools across the country. The board has also released the rationalised syllabus for classes 9th to 12th. We have provided below the CBSE syllabus of Class 10 Science applicable for the academic session 2022-23. Students must go through this latest syllabus before they start the study of a new chapter as some of the topics have been removed from this new syllabus. Check the complete syllabus below and download the same to refer to as and when required.
