Exam times are stressful times for everyone – students, parents and teachers. At this point, while teachers at the LK SINGHANIA EDUCATION CENTRE are busy taking extra classes for problem-solving and clearing of doubts, our Principal, Mr RC Joshi, addresses the higher classes for words of wisdom and preparation tips for the upcoming boards. Here is a gist of what he advises for all students:
FOCUS ON ALL SUBJECTS TO SCORE WELL IN THE EXAMS
Most students tend to focus on tough subjects like Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, etc. and ignore the languages. But they must spare at least an hour for the languages daily, which can help boost their percentage.
Students should plan in such a way that they don’t burden themselves with difficult subjects/topics.
They can study light subjects in between so that they don’t lose interest.
CREATE A STUDY TIME TABLE FOR EFFECTIVE PREPARATION
It’s imperative for students to utilize and manage time well while preparing for exams.
With a good study timetable and proper planning, they can reach their daily, weekly, and long-term study targets. They must adhere to their schedule and stay less distracted.
However, they should avoid studying continuously for long hours to stay focused. They should take breaks, relax, and get sufficient sleep too.
PREPARE A REVISION PLAN; MAKE NOTES OF WHAT YOU’VE STUDIED
The importance of proper revision cannot be emphasized enough. Students must regularly revise whatever they learn or study every day.
They can make notes of important topics or formulae to help them revise better.
To avoid confusion, they can also take help of visual aids while revising; they can convert their revision notes into diagrams and flowcharts to remember them well.
SOLVING SAMPLE PAPERS AND PREVIOUS QUESTION PAPERS
Solving the question papers of at least the last 10 years and sample papers will help students revise almost all concepts and understand the exam pattern.
Taking mock tests will also help them analyze their performance, assess the difficulty level, and the format of the question papers.
