Punjab Board Class 12 Syllabus

In its endeavour to impart quality education, the Punjab Board of Secondary Education strictly adheres to the guidelines set by the National Curriculum Framework – 2005. As a result, the Punjab Board Class 12 Syllabus achieves the perfect balance of attaining the right depth of the topics covered without burdening the students too much.

Another aspect of the syllabus developed by the board is the stress on understanding the subjects from an application perspective without reducing them to mere ‘facts’. This approach is also visible in their exam pattern that allocates 30% weightage to practical tests. Students can refer to the PSEB Class 12 Syllabus for the main subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths.
