ISC 12th Syllabus 2021

Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE), responsible for conducting the ICSE and ISC exams in the country every year, has decided to reduce the Class IX, X, XI, and XII syllabus for the upcoming academic session. The subject experts have reduced the syllabus of all the major subjects for ICSE (X) and ISC (XII) under the board's guidance. Students must download the syllabus to prepare for the examinations with the right focus.

CISCE class 12th comprises three major streams: Science, Commerce, and Humanities/Arts. These three streams are classified based on the core subjects.

The science stream teaches the areas related to medical, engineering, and other professional fields, whereas the commerce stream focuses on business-related topics, commerce, trade, and financial matters. Unlike science and commerce, the humanities/arts stream covers vast areas of study, and the subjects include historical arts, cultural and traditional values, matter and political and social interests, etc.

Kindly go through the following table to better understand the core subjects in each stream. The following sections cover the detailed syllabus topics according to the streams. Candidates can also download the syllabus PDF files from the sections below:
