CBSE class 12 students appearing in their board exams in February-March 2020 will face physics as the first paper of the science subjects. Physics exam is scheduled for March 2, 2020. Followed by Chemistry on March 7, 2020. And then Biology is on March 14, 2020, for PCB / BiPC students. Whereas PCM students will sit for Mathematics on March 17, 2020.
For this reason, the topmost query from most science students at this point is what are the important topics to study for physics exam for class 12 CBSE 2020 board exams?
Here you go!
CBSE Class 12 2020 Physics Important Topics
Remember one thing – all topics are important for board exams. This is because of 2 reasons: first is that the curriculum has been designed in such a way that a student is expected to learn all the topics in it and the board exams should test them on their learning; and second reason is to help you score more marks! If you think one topic is less important and do not study it at all, but a very easy question comes from it then you lose easy marks. So better to study everything.
Still, from the NCERT CBSE curriculum, this is the distribution of chapters and topics, marks wise.
Unit I Electrostatics + Unit II Current Electricity is of 16 marks
Unit I Electrostatics consists of two chapters:
Unit II Current Electricity consists of one chapter:
Unit III Magnetic Effects of Current and Magnetism + Unit IV Electromagnetic Induction and Alternating Currents is of 17 marks
Unit III Magnetic Effects of Current and Magnetism has two chapters
Unit IV Electromagnetic Induction and Alternating Currents consists of two chapters:
Unit V Electromagnetic Waves + Unit VI Optics is of 18 marks
Unit V Electromagnetic Waves has one chapter:
Unit VI Optics has two chapters
Unit VII Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter + Unit VIII Atoms and Nuclei is of 12 marks
Unit VII Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter has one chapter
Unit VIII Atoms and Nuclei comprises of two chapters
Unit IX Electronic Devices is of 12 marks
Unit IX Electronic Devices has one chapter
Preparation Tips for CBSE class 12 Physics Board Exam
When it comes to Physics, understanding+practice is the key.
Physics is the science of the beautiful way things work. It is the conception as well as the explanation of why the apple fell, why energy can neither be created not be destroyed, what is time travel, and so many miraculous things. Physics is in fact that subject that debunks miracles into facts and figure, and makes logic and science the power behind all things that happen.
So to ace physics, you should understand the topics. If you are stuck in rotational motion, observe rotational motion. If you wonder why is acceleration the way it is, feel yourself lurch forwards or fall back when in a moving car. Connect physics with your day to day happenings.
If we talk solely about the subject to get marks, then NCERT is the highest authority for your class 12 board exam 2020. Be thorough with the book, all its exercises and everything else. Even the blue box are important.
Solve as many past year question papers of CBSE board exams as you can.
Best of luck for your CBSE class 12 2020 physics exam.
