The Class 12 of Himachal Pradesh Board is the most crucial stage of school education. After completing the 10 years of basic education students opt for chemistry with the aim of pursuing their career in basic science. Moreover, they can also go for professional courses like medicine, engineering, technology etc after schooling. So, for this, it is needed that students should have a conceptual background of Chemistry and basic understanding of the subject. To cater for this need the HPBOSE Class 12 Chemistry Syllabus is designed.
Keep reading this space to know more about the HPBOSE Class 12 Chemistry Syllabus.
HPBOSE Class 12 Chemistry Syllabus 2021-22
The HP Board Class 12 Syllabus is designed by the Himachal Pradesh Board of School Education. The board has included many new areas like synthetic materials, biomolecules, natural resources and industrial chemistry. It also emphasis on the use of new nomenclature, symbols and formulations, applications of concepts in chemistry to industry/technology and logical sequencing of units.
