To master all the Chemistry concepts, students need to get an idea about the topics covered in class for the academic year 2020-21. So, here we have compiled for you the revised Uttarakhand Board Class 11 Chemistry Syllabus 2020-21 and details of the deleted portions on the web page and PDF formats for download.
The syllabus was reduced for this academic year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Hence, we provide the revised syllabus as well as the deleted sections. Students can click on the provided PDF links to get the details.
In this article below students can find the unit names or topics covered in class for the subject in this current academic year.
- Unit I: Some Basic Concepts of Chemistry
