CBSE class 12 Chemistry important topics Chapter Wise

CBSE class 12 Chemistry important topics Chapter wise: Chemistry subject is one of the highest scoring papers for class 12th students. As of last year, most of the questions in the Chemistry exams have been asked directly from the NCERT textbook. Therefore, students are advised to prepare only from the NCERT Book and refer to the question paper of previous year. If you do this much, then you can pass through good marks.

CBSE Board class 12th examination will probably start in the last month of February and the chemistry subject examination is held in March, then this time also it will be conducted in the month of March itself. More students get Chemistry as a disgusting subject, but you do not know that every year the maximum marks in the CBSE Board exam comes from the subject of Chemistry.

CBSE Board Chemistry Paper Attempt Tips:

First you read the whole question easily and you feel that you can solve all the questions easily, so you should try to make the question from the beginning, if you do not know the whole question, then first of all You have to try after 5 digits. That is, do 4-5 correct questions in the paper and do questions that do not come in the middle, and then ask questions in the right questions, then you can get good marks.

You do all the questions in one section one time, and then do the other questions of the other section. If you do not have any questions in one section, then leave space for it, or do that question later. Well you have achieved better marks in board exam.

One mark of question is difficult in CBSE board exam, so try more marks of the question in the first attempt and try one mark question later.

The most important thing for CBSE board class 12 students, if you want to pass the exam with good marks, keep one thing in mind just read the NCERT Book. If you read the full NCERT Book, then you read the previous year question Paper. Then you will get 90% above marks in CBSE board exam.
