Map work is one of the key questions in the board exams. Gone are the days of SA1& SA2, now you have to practise a lot, precisely, complete syllabus! It’ll be better if you practise according to the Social Science map work syllabus. We’ve got several stories from students throughout the country regarding their poor performance in Social Science of the 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 board 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 10 cbse Social Science map work 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.

    • This is the syllabus issued by cbse. You can treat it as questions for practice. Direct questions will be asked from this section.

  1. Is there a website where I can find the maps labeled? This was really helpful but a labeled map is what I ultimately came here for.

  2. Is there a site where these maps are labeled? These questions are helpful but a labeled map cannot be found in any of the sites.

  3. You should enable us to have a look at these things on the map too… there are only the locations…. which are not enough for us… there should be a map too… on which these locations would be mentioned
