List of WBCHSE Chemistry Practical Experiments


The practical exams of the West Bengal board are right around the corner. As such, students of Higher Secondary grade (class XI, XII) of the WBCHSE board will benefit from this list of WBCHSE Chemistry Practical Experiments. Your school would need to teach you to perform all of the following lab experiments in order for you to succeed at the HS practical exams.

The board of education in West Bengal, namely the  West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education , has released the chemistry syllabus 2022. Accordingly, we are presenting here the chemistry lab syllabus 2022 for HS WB board. You can refer to this list of experiments when learning the HS chemistry practicals.

WBCHSE Chemistry Practical Experiments 1

Labkafe’s West Bengal Board (WBCHSE) Chemistry Lab Package has all the lab equipment, apparatus and glassware you need to perform the experiments and practices mentioned in this list of practicals for HS west bengal board for classes 11 & 12. With the help of this package, you can easily demonstrate and perform all of these experiments.

WBCHSE Chemistry Practical Syllabus for Class XI

For class 11, the WBCHSE chemistry practical syllabus has a total of 19 experiments and practices, of a total 30 marks in the exam.
