Online Science CBSE and Olympiad Classes Syllabus for Grade 10

Olympiads are the stepping stones to achieve better results in the competitive world that lies ahead in the life of the child. Science Olympiad examinations help students to improve their practical skills along with their analytical and problem solving abilities. It also helps in improving the academic performance. Along with that CBSE syllabus also plays a crucial role in the same.

Hence, Olympiad Success Live has designed a long-term course for Science preparation which includes both CBSE syllabus and Olympiad for class 10. This long-term course will help in building the foundation of the child. For this, we have done great efforts in finding the tutor for class 10 Science CBSE and Olympiad preparation with relevant background and experience.

Science is that one subject that plays an important role in developing well-defined abilities in affective, cognitive and psychomotor domains in all the students. It inculcates the spirit of enquiry, creativity, objectivity and aesthetic sensibility among the children.

For grade 10 students, while science is still a common subject, the disciplines of Physics, Chemistry and Biology begin to emerge. The students are exposed to experiences based on hands-on activities as well as modes of reasoning that are typical of the subject.

We have seen for smaller grade students that to make them understand Science, we should engage them with the processes of Science like observing, hypothesizing, experimenting recording observations, drawing, tabulation, plotting graphs, analyzing and driving conclusions, etc. But, for Grade 10 Science students, along with the above engagements, they expect abstraction and quantitative reasoning to occupy a more central place in the teaching and learning of Science.

The syllabus for grade 10 students has been designed around the following broad themes viz.

  • Chemical Substances - Nature and Behaviour
  • The World of the Living
  • Natural Phenomena
Check the detailed syllabus below. For Olympiads preparation, you can check the syllabus here!

Keeping in mind the curricular expectations, Olympiad Success Live has designed a course for CBSE and Olympiad Science preparation for class 10 students. And for this, we have the right set of tutors with relevant background and experience for class 10 Science CBSE and Olympiads preparation.

To fulfill these curricular expectations, our course will help the students of class 10 with the content as mentioned below and will help in inculcating values among students too:
