UK Board class 10 Science Syllabus in PDF format for free download. Science syllabus for class 10 UK Board is now available in the myCBSEguide app. The curriculum for Uttarakhand Board exams is designed by UBSE, Uttarakhand as per NCERT textbooks for the session. Finally, UK board syllabus is here for class 10 Science. First of all, we would like to say that UBSE official website is total chaos. They have not updated syllabus since 2009. It seems like they are not managing it properly. Here, we are providing the syllabus based on NCERT books specially designed for UK board students.
