ISC Class 12th Chemistry Syllabus 2023: Chemistry (code: 862) is an elective subject in ISC Class 12 and is a core part of the science course. Chemistry is an intriguing subject that is defined as the scientific study of the properties and behaviour of matter. Chemistry is an essential part of the science course in ISC class 12 and comes in handy for both medical and non-medical aspirants. The ISC class 12 chemistry syllabus is divided into three subcategories: physical, organic, and inorganic chemistry. Organic chemistry makes up the majority of the ISC board Class 12 Chemistry syllabus.
