    Physics deals with the experimental,theoretical, classical and modern aspects. Physics can be further divided into various disciplines like astrophysics, atomic and molecular physics, biophysics, solid state physics, optical and laser physics, fluid and plasma physics, nuclear physics, and particle physics.This sample paper is totally accordance to the syllabus…. Go through this.Good content of question. GOOD LUCK!!!!!

  • preeti nisha

    Physics is one of the most challenging and head scratching subject. It is a major concern for most of the science students. This subject is very conceptual and becomes unruly if one does fail to conceptualize its basics. The sample paper given here is very helpful as boards are near and can help students to visualize the various components this this subject.

  • shreya sarkar

    Physics, one of the toughest subjects. One can only master it by studying more and more and solving as many numerical as possible. With the class 12th board exams approaching I guess these sample papers will be a great help for students. All the best and happy studying :)

  • Er Ketan Joshi

    Physics is one of the difficult subject i have ever seen because i really scared to listen word physics.
    So i just prepare me for physics in long and long time i will spent in physics. But this post was really help those student who were like me i mean who scared the word of physics only so this article provide a very good platform to cover all type of a question so that our confidence level will jump up .

  • Piyali Chattaraj

    Physics can be defined as a branch of science that is concerned with matter and energy.It is know doubt a very interesting subject if you can understand.It is about natural philosophy.As 12th board exam is coming students have to be well prepared in this subject.solve the given paper of physics so u can evaluate yourself and gain confidence.So wish you all the very best.

  • Vipin Sahu

    This sample paper of Physics is really very good for 12th appearing students.Its covers whole syllabus of physics as per latest syllabus guidelines.Before appearing for exam please go through for this sample sample it helps a lot & built your confidence after solving this sample paper.

    getting nightmares before Physics exams.. not able to sleep the night before your physics exams?
    Solve this paper and ward off your night mares and get your self well equipped for your exams.

  • Manisha Chawla

    This is high time for 12th boards appearing students. At this time they remain very tensed about their performance. Most of the students have fear of this main subject PHYSICS because it contains both numerical and theoretical sections on equal basis. This sample paper is suitable for all students to evaluate their preparation before exams and cope up with the problems they face in solving them. This will make them to manage time also for their finals. Do solve this paper and all the best for finals.


    This practice paper is really very helpful for all class XII students in their preparations for boards as it covers all important topics. These questions make the students aware about the question pattern and the topics where they need to concentrate. In short, solving these papers boost up their confidence and prepare them for their board exam.

  • diya mukherjee

    most of the students fear physics in their 12 board exams. This practise paper will help them to gain confidence on themselves and wold help them prepare for 12 board physics paper in a easier way.


    This article is really helpful for those who will be appearing for class XII board exams.Candidates those who want to assess themselves should go through these questions.Some more numerical based questions are expected.

  • sumit mukherjee

    Before board examination these papers provide a complete practice to the students. The marks wise division helps the students to create an idea over the type of the final question paper. Indeed we all know that to practice in the proper way leads us to success. And I believe that this paper is one of the key of that success.


    These questions are really helpful for those who will be appearing for class XII board exams.If candidates wants to assess themselves, they should go through these questions.Some more numerical based questions expected.

  • sakshi chaudhary

    Given practice paper is very help for the Class 12 students to check out their preparation for board.With the help of this you can evaluate that how much practice is required in order to prepare for both practical as well as theoretical papers.

  • Akash Tripathi

    As XII board is the final and most concerned examination and forms the foundation for the future , this practice paper is very helpful for final wrap up of the preparations for board exams.

  • Sneha sinha

    With boards knocking at the doors the sample paper proves to be useful… and I hope all the candidates appearing for class XII gets benefited from it…

  • Saheli Dasgupta

    Physics itself is a very tough subject, at least to me it always was, but i also liked a lot, especially because it gives the idea about all things around us, from reason behind the rising and setting sun to all the machines we use in daily life. This practice paper is quite a standard. students appearing for the 12th board exams this year will be greatly benefited by this. Great care is taken to balance the numerical and theoretical section in here. So, keep practicing & ALL THE BEST to all!!! :)
