Download latest cbse class 9 Science Practical syllabus for the session 2017-18. This year CBSE has changed the exam pattern.

Gone are the days of SA1& SA2, now you have to practise a lot in a more precise way covering complete syllabus! It’ll be better if you practise according to the Science syllabus. We’ve got several stories from students throughout the country regarding their poor performance in Science board exams. One noteworthy point was that most of them didn’t bother about the syllabus issued by CBSE, they just practised the sample papers or directly appeared in exams. It’s very important to avoid such situation. Syllabus acts as prima facie for your CBSE exam. It reduces the topics, tells the weightage of each chapter so that you can invest more time on important topics, tells the question paper format and much more.

Students are advised to download the class 9 cbse Science Practical syllabus for the session 2017-2018 even if they have the previous year syllabus because there is a lot of changes in the syllabus, question pattern and weightage of each chapter.
