ICSE Class 10 Physics Syllabus 2024

Latest ICSE 2023-24 Syllabus Physics Class 10

CISCE has made no changes in their ICSE Class 10 syllabus for the 2023-24 academic session. Unlike other boards, CISCE uploads a bulk of syllabus and specimen papers for the coming years. But so far there have been no changes in both.

So, let’s start building a foundation for ICSE 2024 board exams with chapter-wise syllabus. Below, you can download the ICSE Class 10 Physics Syllabus PDF for the session 2023-24.
