Chemistry

ICSE Board - 11th Class

Class 11 is a very crucial time for all students. After ICSE, students who want to opt for science should not waste their time and straight get back to their studies. They must know the ICSE class 11 chemistry syllabus well and start going through the chapters. As a student, if you give yourself a small break after the final exam and head towards the study with full potential, nothing can stop you from getting extraordinary marks.


Before you start preparing for ICSE chemistry, take a glance at the ICSE class 11 chemistry syllabus.

ICSE Class 11 Chemistry Syllabus

There are two papers on 11th syllabus chemistry:


Paper I is divided into three sections: physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and organic chemistry. 32 marks come from the first unit, i.e. physical chemistry, 15 marks from inorganic chemistry, and 23 marks from organic chemistry. The total number of paper one is 70 marks. In paper II, students will have a practical test of 15 marks, project work of 10 marks, and a practical file for 5 marks.
