ICSE Class 10 Physics Reduced Syllabus

The syllabus for ICSE Class 10 is believed to be the most challenging among other Board syllabi. Due to the COVID situation prevalent since 2019, ICSE has made several changes in their syllabus and paper pattern. So, it is important to be updated with all such changes for both teachers and students.

Physics helps you understand how the world around us works in real. From earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, quarks, lungs and brains to can openers, black holes, light bulbs. It makes you curious to know more about the hidden knowledge in the world and widers your overall perspective.
