UPSEE/UPTU Syllabus 2018

To start preparation for UPSEE/UPTU Examination 2018, the most important thing is to know the domain of study. Students cannot learn everything. To know the domain of any subject students need the latest syllabus of that particular subject. In this article we bring to you the updated syllabus of Chemistry for UPSEE/UPTU Examination 2018. There are three sections in UPSEE/UPTU Examination i.e., Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Each section has 50 questions of 4 marks each. Chemistry is one of the easiest and scoring subjects in UPSEE/UPTU Examination if you prepare well. This article will give you the detailed information about all the topics of Chemistry like Atomic Structure, Chemical Bonding, Thermochemistry, Solid State, Periodic Table and so on.
