ISC Syllabus for Class 11 Physics is a crucial study resource for studies. Students studying in class 11 of ISC board should know the entire syllabus of each and every subject before they start preparing for their examination. So, to help them, we have provided the ISC Class 11 Physics Syllabus for theory as well as practicals. Thorough knowledge of ISC Class 11 Physics Syllabus will also help in preparing a proper study schedule for the exam.

OLExpert’s pricing is dependent on the plan you choose. Plans vary as per grade and the exam a student is preparing. Also, students can customize the topics as per the requirement. Our quarterly package covers 25%, the Half-Yearly package covers 50%, and the Annual package covers 100% of the syllabus. The quality of OLExpert’s content is really great and made in a very interactive manner.


At this platform we provide the following things with our packages:


Mind Maps: Mind mapping is simply a diagram used to visually represent or outline information. It is a powerful graphic technique you can use to translate what’s in your mind into a visual picture. A Mind Map can turn a long list of monotonous information into a colorful, memorable, and highly organized diagram that works in line with your brain's natural way of doing things.


Practice Tests: Practice tests are informal examinations taken as a preparation for an actual or formal examination. The practice test is an alternate, ungraded version of the graded midterm or final exam in your course. The practice tests look and feel like the actual exam, so it is a good way to familiarize yourself with the test-taking experience.


Free Live Sessions: Live lectures are live educational video classes held online, as opposed to in-person lectures. Live classes allow interaction with students through chats and comments, which helps to make the class more dynamic, encourages debate, and allows immediate answers to questions. 


Performance Analysis: Performance analysis is the process by which learners identify and respond to problems and opportunities, through the study of individuals and their organization to determine an appropriate solvent system. This section provides athletes and coaches with objective information that helps them understand performance.
