ICSE Class 7 Science Syllabus


The Council of the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) is the board of examination that conducts examination for the Indian Certificate of Secondary Examination (ICSE) for classes upto 10th.

Class 7th hold to be one of the most important class, as various topics are introduced in 7th that helps students in basic conceptual building. One of the most important subject is the subject of Science where students get familiar to the various topics that are used in everyday life by human. Even various experiments all over the world is carried out based on these concepts. Having a good knowledge of the syllabus can help students to study along the flow, as well as helps students in time-management, in order to decide the time to be given for different topics. This helps them to improve in the subject.
