 # Karnataka Board 2nd PUC Physics Syllabus

Whether you want to pursue an engineering course or any other academic course at the university level, Physics forms the core of Science syllabus. Karnataka Board 2nd PUC Physics syllabus caters to this exact need and provides you with the right platform from where you can launch your student career in a stream of your choice.

We understand that students leave no stone unturned when preparing for these crucial exams and in our effort to help you, we have put together an updated and complete Physics syllabus of Karnataka Pre-University Board 2nd PUC. Since we want you to find the Physics syllabus comprehensive, we have also included syllabus for practical exams. Although, second PUC exams in Karnataka does not include practical, questions related to the experiments do appear in the question papers.

Here is the Physics syllabus for Karnataka Board 2nd PUC:
