Himachal Pradesh Board of School Education (HPBOSE) already provides 12th class student’s syllabus on its official website. Candidates are required to go through the syllabus once before taking any step. In this article, students can take advantage of HP board 12th question papers. Subjects are explained in Unit-Wise with the marking scheme. Model papers are available for all the three streams that are Science, Commerce, Humanities. Solve the HP board 12th question papers to get an idea of questions, which will lead you to prepare better.

After the 12th, there will be a depressing environment around students because they have to choose what they will pursue next. I am here to solve this big issue by sharing simple advice for students. I recommend you select CA after the 12th examination because it has lots of advantages like higher salary, fixed working hours, anyone can choose this stream, etc. There are a lot of job opportunities for CA candidates in every sector of the market. 

Below is the detail of HP Board 12th question papers and marking scheme:

At the end of the article, I would like to say Best of Luck to all the HP Board 12th students for their exams. In this, we have covered the question papers and marking scheme of the 12th class. A reminder of my above statement that after 12th, students should choose the course of CA for a better future. If you have the dedication and believe yourself, then no one can stop you from success. 

Students have to fight three levels in Chartered Accountancy (CA) that are CA Foundation, CA Intermediate, and CA Final for a successful life. I hope you will like the article and follow the steps that I have mentioned above.
