The subject improves global awareness and educates students about the world and national events of importance. The RBSE conducts the annual board exams to put students’ Social Science knowledge to the test.

While it’s essential to learn the subject by heart to succeed in the RBSE class 10 social science exams, it’s equally important to know the correct syllabus and pattern of the exams.
