Tips to Prepare for Board Exams

Carry Out Thorough Studies
- Remember, in the exams, questions can be asked from anywhere from your textbook. So, be acquainted with each topic and concept.
- Don’t overlook graphs, diagrams or tables.
Early Morning Study
Instead of doing late-night studies, learn in the morning. As morning could be less disruptive and your mind also feels refreshed. This helps you in concentrating on your studies in a better way and you will be able to learn quickly, whatever you read.
Accentuate Significant Formulae/Points
- Note down important dates, formulae and points in a notebook. Read them, whenever you get spare moments.
- You can also note down significant points in vivid colors on chart papers. Stick them around your study place. Take a look at these points, each time you go by. This way, you will be able to memorize them, by-heart.
Solve Precedent Year’s Examination Papers
- Solve question papers of at least ten precedent years. This will help you in understanding the pattern of the examination.
- You can also get idea of the questions that are being frequently repeated over the years.
Work on Weak Points
“A lot of us would like to move mountains, but few of us are willing to practice on small hills.” – Anonymous
- Instead of concealing your weak points, work on them.
- Remember, the result of board exams is decided on the basis of collective percentage of all subjects. If you ignore one or two subjects, it will impinge your percentage.
- If you find difficulty in any subject, don’t leave it. It’s possible that whatever you are leaving may appear in the question paper. So, practice more and more.
Study in a Group
- It’s a good idea to study in a group, at least once a week. Your friends might have a better knowledge of a particular subject, in which you are facing difficulty. You can take their help to overcome your doubts.
- Your friends may suggest you some of the important segment of the syllabus, from which questions may be asked in the exam.
- Studying with friends will help you in getting refreshed.
- Many students take too much tea or coffee to do late night-studies. In fact, these beverages reduce the capability of the body. So, avoid consuming them.
- Intake balanced diet. Drink a lot of water.
- Take a proper sleep, before the day of the examination.
- Instead of doing continuous studies, take little breaks in between and involve yourself in some other activities (like, listen to music, play outdoor games, etc.)
