- Chemical Reactions and Equations
- Structure of Atom
- The Periodic Table

- Three summative tests must be conducted in each academic year for
Class X. Public examination is conducted by the Board of Secondary
Education in place of third summative test.
- First and second Summative Assessments shall be conducted by schools
themselves by preparing question papers for 80% of marks. This ensures
