Strategy to study for Class 10th Board Exams for CBSE
Students tend to ignore their body clock. When they are on preparatory leave, most students study late into the night and end up sleeping in the morning. Start your timetable right in advance, so you have enough time to revise everything. You might even need to make a few different timetables. Time is a very important factor here.
2. Give a colour mark to each subject
It will be easier to navigate your timetable and you will be able to see more easily if you have a fair balance between all of your subjects. Also, it looks visually better.
3. The initial : Planning
Don’t just jump straight into it. Think things through first that what all you need to do first.
4. Break it down in achievable targets
Take a separate paper and under each subject, list all of the things that you need to know. This might be all the topic areas for that subject, what you covered each week in class/tuitions or the different sections of the exam.
5. Be very specific
Be sure what you exactly need to do in order to feel confident of completing all the steps .That is in any of the topic area list the exact page numbers and exercises that you will do so that when you finally finish it you will feel excellent.
6.Create a schedule for one subject at one time
Always maintain a timetable and be sure that you’ve covered everything. Be realistic with how long each exercise is going to take.
7.Factor in time for Breaks
You need to give yourself a break while preparing thoroughly . Do consider time taken to eat or sleep. The night should be taken off for complete rest. Never ever forget your hobbies in exams time.
Mix and study your subjects and not continue with just one
Always mix your subjects while studying throughout a day so that you don’t loose your interest quickly. You can also have different time of a day for each subject according to your preference.
9.Dont set yourself to the time limit
Its not necessary to set yourself within the time boundations and could find ways to improvise. Try to set a specific time everyday and you might find things going easy.
Exam Preparation Tips
Board exams are not about ‘mugging’ anymore. Open Book assessments in Class IX and XI aim to encourage students to develop analytical and problem-solving skills. Here are a few tips to score well in Class 10 board exams, without compromising on the quality of education –
- Find a study corner: A suitable environment goes a long way in enhancing your focus. If you do not have a separate room to study, find a quiet corner for yourself.
- Do not ignore health & fitness: Since a healthy mind lives in a healthy body, pay attention to your fitness. Avoid junk food and sugar and drink plenty of water and fluids. Play sports and do physical exercises regularly.
- Fun as reward: While watching TV, playing computer games, and talking to friends can be a great distraction for a school-going student, you can indulge in them once in a while as a ‘reward’ to yourself whenever you are able to follow your timetable successfully for six days at a stretch.
