With the board exams already started, there’s a sudden nervousness in the atmosphere. The pressure to perform well and excel in the 10th and 12th board exams is forever lurking on the student’s head.
Every student aims for a bright career by scoring well and entering their desired college. LJ Institute of Applied Management has prepared a list of top 10 sure-shot tips for every student to crack their 10th and 12th board exams.
#1. You know your strength and weakness the best — Plan your entire schedule around your strong and weak points. Give more time to the topics you’re less thorough with.
#2. Refer the past year papers — In the board exams you’ll see a pattern of questions asked repeatedly. Be thorough with those and prepare according to the paper style.
#3. Practice & practice — No matter how prepared you feel you are, keep practicing. Take up a different sections from the question paper each day, stop not until you’re done with the 10th and 12th board exams.
#4. Don’t leave aside a single topic from the text book — Study the chapters, solve every question given at the end of the textbook. Don’t leave a single topic undone.
#5. Disciplined schedule — Sleep on time, wake up on time. Follow a strict and disciplined schedule and stick to it. Our body takes time to adjust to a new routine, refrain from trying new timetables.
#6. Don’t overstress yourself — Many students feel stressed out before the board exams. Give yourself some creative time, work out or pursue your hobby for an hour a day.
#7. Solve sample papers — Solve sample papers from other schools to practice more and get a hang of a variety of questions asked.
#8. Prepare notes — Jot down the important formulae in a diary or keep sticky notes with reminder topics. Add one tick more with every revision.
#9. Keep targets — Your productivity increases when you study with targets in mind. Prepare realistic and achievable milestones.
#10. Reduce the use of social media — Spend as much time you can studying. Social media tends to distract. Replace social media with exercise to remain healthy.
