UP Board Class 12 Physics Syllabus for 2022-23

Physics is one of the most prominent subjects required in engineering domains. The concepts of Physics are extensively used in innovations being carried out around the world. It’s used in solving real life problems. Practising questions of Physics will make you more aware of the types of the questions that might be asked in your class 11 final examination.

The syllabus for CBSE Class 12 is believed to be the most challenging among other Board syllabi. Due to the COVID situation prevalent since 2019, UP Board has made several changes in their syllabus and paper pattern.

In this page, we have provided direct and free access to the Reduced Class 12 Physics Paper Syllabus PDF for the 2022-23 session.
