Study timetable for class 11 Science


Doubtful about which stream to choose after the 10th board exam? Before preferring any stream, you have to make your objective and goal about your career clear. Many students decide to switch their stream. This makes things more difficult for them in the future.

Therefore, students must make their priorities straight before choosing their stream. They should make sure that their choice is solely dependent on them and not influenced by others.


This article intends to guide the students who prefer to take the Science stream with a general overview and tips to cope with their academics. Firstly, the stereotypical conception of only intellectual students going for this stream must be abated. It is a common belief that only Medical and Engineering aspirants should go for Science.

Only a few are aware of the countless career opportunities and the freedom to select many courses after 12th that only the Science stream offers its students.

The different subjects in Science Stream


The Science stream has some fun and practical collections of subjects to study. Common Science subjects for 11th and 12th as prescribed by CBSE are:

●    Physics

●    Chemistry

●    Biology

●    Mathematics

●    Computer Science

●    English

●    Physical Education 


As per CBSE guidelines, students are allowed to choose five mandatory subjects including English and one optional subject. The general grouping along with English and an optional subject (mostly Physical Education) preferred by schools and students are:


Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer: This is the most preferred combination of subjects for students that are interested in the technical, machinery, coding, etc related line and have an inclination towards practical and experimental proficiency.


Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology: Some students who are determined enough to go for Medical and its relevant career options are bound to go for Biology in their 11th and 12th. 


Science subjects


CBSE gives students the liberty to keep an optional subject that acts as a saviour in case anything goes wrong. Students not enthusiastic about Mathematics usually choose subjects like Physical Education, etc. for their mandatory subjects and Mathematics as their optional.

Long story short, the students are independent to choose the subjects they are comfortable with and consider taking up as their career option. Another important tip for students of this stream is that just because you are studying several practical subjects, doesn’t mean you get to ignore your English paper. Students usually neglect this subject which ends up lowering their overall percentage. Give equal importance to every subject. 


Each subject of science stream has a mark division of 70-30. The theory portion is of 70 marks and the practical is of 30 marks. Students must score passing marks separately in both papers to fulfil their passing criteria. This is something that needs to be emphasized because the practicals of this stream are sort of exhausting.

Before choosing this stream, the students must be aware of its dynamic and empirical nature. Mugging up and jotting down is not something beneficial in this stream.


Every stream and subject needs hard work and dedication. Because of the combination of extremely practical subjects, students of this stream require a lot of self-study, proper guidance, dedication, and patience.

How to manage and maintain balance in your life as a student?


Once students complete their 10th, they are exposed to the reality of studies which is not at all easy and requires a lot of commitment and devotion. Studies and schools are not the only things students have to manage all day long. At this stage, tuition and coaching classes become a necessity. Most students also have extracurricular classes and hobbies. Time management becomes quite difficult for them. Only students can understand the level of stress and anxiety, mismanagement of time brings to their life. Here are a few tips on how to manage your school, studies, and other daily life aspects:



This can't be stressed enough but meditation and light workouts calm your mind and body which is very much necessary to make it through your day. The amount of peace and calmness needed to concentrate on your studies and other activities is indispensable.

Maintain balance in your student life


Make your to-do list for the day

This is a saviour. It helps you manage and target your daily goals and passively reminds you of your chores and duties. It simplifies your day and makes it easy for you to monitor your consistency and productivity.


Set your goals for the week

Besides setting daily targets, try setting long-term weekly goals that somehow motivate and prompt you to finish your tasks and decrease your procrastination, and save you from last-minute hurry.

Manage work study balance


Less source, more revision 

This is an important tip to manage your studies. Limit your sources and books and increase the number of revisions to avoid confusion and forgetfulness. 

student life balance


Don't get influenced by other

Looking for motivation is good but it is not every time that someone else impacts us positively. Sometimes we are negatively influenced by others. You need to understand that just because someone else is opting for this stream or coaching doesn't mean you should too. Analyse and understand your interests and inclination and act accordingly.


Proper self-care

Deteriorating your health and social life for anything is not worth it. Make sure you get proper 6 to 8 hours of sleep, healthy meals, and have a sound mind. Don't indulge yourself in something so much that it becomes toxic for you. A healthy body and life are a must to deal with everything.
