CBSE Class 12 Chemistry Practice Paper 2023: The Class 12th chemistry board exam is to be held on 28th February 2023. It is important to solve the practice papers during the last-minute preparation for the exams. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released the “Additional Practice Questions” for the Class 12 Chemistry exam 2023 to help students check their preparation level and get an idea of difficult topics. The sample papers provide the blueprint and mars distribution of exams and consist of mainly generic questions. Plus, they are released several months before the exam. The 2023 CBSE class 12 chemistry practice paper, on the other hand, consists of important questions which help in some much-needed revision in the last few days of the exam. These practice papers are intended to assist students to gauge their level of preparedness as well as gaining a better idea of the types of questions that will be asked in the final exams. You can read and download the CBSE class 12 chemistry practice paper 2023 PDF along with the marking scheme here.
