Jharkhand Board Class 12 Physics Syllabus

The Jharkhand Education Council has been striving to provide world-class education in Science. By adopting novel methods such as introducing major scientific developments in the syllabus and following the guidelines laid down by the National Curriculum Framework 2005, the board has set a credible syllabus that puts the students on a path towards a meaningful higher education.

The Board Class 12 Physics Syllabus has all the required components for a great foundation before the students can choose engineering or other academic courses. The board has adopted a future focus curriculum so that the topics are included in the syllabus before they are in demand in the industry.

Physics subjects lose their meaning if experiments and practicals don’t go hand in hand with theory classes. To this extent, the board has included a right mix of practicals in the syllabus so the students can also gain application perspective.

Physics Syllabus:


Current Electricity
Effects of Electric Current
Electromagnetic Induction and Alternating Current
Electromagnetic Waves and Wave Optics
Atomic Physics
Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter –Relativity
Nuclear Physics
Semiconductor Devices and Their Applications
