CBSE Class 11 Syllabus Chemistry

Chemistry, Class 11 CBSE

Students preparing for entrance exams and solely hoping to excel in that tend to choose subjects that go light on their preparation, so that their focus can be on the various entrance examinations like JEE Mains and JEE Advanced, AIPMT, AIIMS, etc Among all this stands a very common and important scoring subject chemistry !!! Chemistry is further divided as Physical, Organic & Inorganic chemistry Physical chemistry :- understanding the concepts and knowing how to apply the formula to calculate the physical parameters of a chemical process is aim of this sub topic Organic chemistry :- Under this section you will learn about organic reactions and mechanism of few important name reactions. Inorganic chemistry :- It aims at making a student aware of important chemical and physical properties of s,p d&f elements, understanding the nomenclature and studying important named reaction and understanding the bonding aspects.
