Maximize Marks in Chemistry

What are the important topics of chemistry class 12 for the board examination? How to maximize marks in the Chemistry class 12 board examination? What are the topics of chemistry to be covered at the last hour of our preparation for the class 12 board examination?

These are the most emphasized and frequently asked questions of the students preparing chemistry for the CBSE, the ICSC, and different state board examinations. To answer these questions and finding the important topics of chemistry class 12 is really a challenging task. However, considering these questions frequently asked by the students of class 12 and based on my 25 years of teaching experiences of these examinations, I have prepared a checklist of the important topics of chemistry class 12 for the last hour’s preparation of board examinations. All these important topics of chemistry class 12 are listed here and they can surely maximize your marks in chemistry.
