CBSE Syllabus for Class 11 & 12 Free PDF Download All Subjects

The CBSE syllabus is an example of a list where all subjects from classes 1 to 12 are available in a systematic summary. This list enables teachers to begin their teaching process and enables students to begin their learning process.

It is laid out in a format that outlines what the students need to read and what will be covered in the test. Questions are asked using the CBSE syllabus in nearly every entrance exam in the nation.

Each year, the CBSE publishes courses for grades 1 through 12 that cover everything from general knowledge to in-depth information for students and teachers. For classes 11 and 12, we have created a detailed subject-by-subject list for the CBSE curriculum here.

For the academic year 2022–2023, the Central Board of Secondary Education modified the curricula for Classes 9–12, and according to CBSE, this was done in response to COVID-19.
