CISCE, is the board of examination that conducts exams for class 10th
and 12th for the Indian Certificate of Secondary Examination (ICSE)
and Indian School Certificate (ISC) respectively.
Class 11th is important for the students as it helps students prepare
some concepts that are usually asked in the competitive examination.
Students see gradual change in the syllabus in class 11th, thus it
is crucial for them to have an idea about the syllabus. Getting
acquainted with the syllabus of class 11th Physics would benefit the
students with the pattern of examination.
