The syllabus also includes unit wise marking scheme, practicals, assignments and projects.
Class 10 is one of the most challenging years of a student’s life because the students will be appearing for their first board exams. CBSE syllabus for Class 10 Science for academic year 2020-2021 is compiled in accordance with the guidelines laid down by the Board. Students should go through the Class 10 Science syllabus to know the topics and sub-topics under science subjects. The syllabus also includes unit wise marking scheme, practicals, assignments and projects. The syllabus is arranged semester-wise, which helps students to plan their study schedule accordingly. CBSE has cut down the syllabus by 30% for this academic year 2020-21.
CBSE Class 10 students can access the latest Class 10 Science syllabus for the academic year 2020-2021 by clicking on the pdf link provided below.
In the syllabus pdf, students will find the unit names, chapters under each unit and subtopics under each chapter. Along with this they will also get the detailed practical syllabus of Class 10 science.
As students can see in the table below that the science syllabus is divided into 5 units with unit 1 carrying the higher weightage of 25 marks among all.
Students can also check the syllabus for all the subjects of Class 10 by clicking on CBSE Syllabus for Class 10 page.
Students can also find the deleted portion of CBSE Class 10 Science syllabus 2020-21 from below:

Forest and wild life; Coal and Petroleum conservation. Examples of people’s participation for conservation of natural resources.
Big dams: advantages and limitations; alternatives, if any. Water harvesting. Sustainability of natural resources.
As internal assessment consist of 20 marks so students must not ignore the importance of practicals. Along with the theory they should also focus on practicals. This will not only help them in scoring high marks but also understanding the theory concepts through practicals and experiments. So, here we have provided the CBSE Class 10 Science Practical syllabus. Go through it and the experiment list. Students can also download the CBSE Class 10 Science lab Manual . It provides an idea on new science projects, list of experiments and activities.
1. Studying the properties of acids and bases (HCl & NaOH) on the basis of their reaction with:
2. Performing and observing the following reactions and classifying them into:
i) Action of water on quicklime ii) Action of heat on ferrous sulphate crystals iii) Iron nails kept in copper sulphate solution iv) Reaction between sodium sulphate and barium chloride solutions
3. Observing the action of Zn, Fe, Cu and Al metals on the following salt solutions:
Arranging Zn, Fe, Cu and Al (metals) in the decreasing order of reactivity based on the above result.
4. Studying the dependence of potential difference (V) across a resistor on the current (I) passing through it and determine its resistance. Also plotting a graph between V and I.
5. Experimentally show that carbon dioxide is given out duri ng respiration.
6. Determination of the focal length of:
7. Tracing the path of a ray of light passing through a rectangular glass slab for different angles of incidence. Measure the angle of incidence, angle of refraction, angle of emergence and interpret the result.
8. Studying (a) binary fission in Amoeba, and (b) budding in yeast and Hydra with the help of prepared slides.
9. Tracing the path of the rays of light through a glass prism.
