Jan 19 • Board Sample Papers • 106537 Views • 273 Comments on Important questions for Class 10 Chemistry


Chemistry has always been a major part of science for the class 10 students. Its not very difficult to score good marks in chemistry if you learn the basic theory and have practice of the chemical formulas. Based on the studies made on the previous years questions we have picked some very important questions for class 10 Chemistry. These questions have been frequently asked in the board exams of past years.

    This article is really helpful for those candidates who will be appearing for class 10 exams.Chemistry was always a fun to me as i loved the practicals,colors of different chemicals,the reactions.Students should love their subjects and then only it becomes easy for them to understand their subjects better.
