Punjab Board Class 12 Physics Syllabus

Since its inception, the Punjab School Education Board 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 higher education.

The Punjab 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 Punjab board has included a right mix of practicals in the syllabus so the students can also gain application perspective.

NOTE:- Topics mentioned below are part of the prescribed syllabus of P.S.E.B even if they are not given in book subscribed by Punjab Education Board. So, these topics should be done with students. Also, the paper will include these topics and questions from these topics will not be considered as out of syllabus. See, the list of topics below:

1. Electric flux

2. Potentiometer and its applications to measure potential difference

3. Magnetic field intensity due to a magnetic dipole (Bar magnet)

along its axis and perpendicular to its axis.

4. Combinations of lens and mirror

5. Poor of laws of reflection and refraction using Huygens ‘Principle’.

6. Alpha-beta and gamma particles/rays and their properties.
