Every student is struggling to achieve good scores as it will help them to get admissions in their dream universities and colleges.

They tend to underestimate their syllabus books like NCERT in the case of CBSE board, but they should never forget that syllabus books are best to practice with.

Reference books are good to study but only for those who want to be a part of competitive exams after 12th class.
  • Analyze your Strong & Weak Points: It is quintessential to know your strong and weak points while preparing for the board exams. For this, start debugging the mistakes you made in your previous test papers, prepare a list of those mistakes, and work hard to correct them. Working hard on your weak points will not only put you on the right track but also help you to score a great percentage.
  • Stress on Time Management: Time management is one of the biggest factors responsible for excellent marks. You can devote more time to the complex and logical subjects like Maths, Physics, Accounts, etc. Instead of joining coaching classes at the last minute, utilize that time in self-study. Allot equal time of study to your main subjects and don’t your underestimate supporting subjects like English & Hindi as they can be a real percentage booster for you.
  • Practice Sample & Previous Year Papers: Don’t let the power of fancy guides and reference books overpower the value of old assets. Although students leave no stone unturned to score best in the exams, it has been observed that they don’t even consider previous year papers. The last 10 years papers are enough to boost up the preparation. You will understand the level of difficulty, figure out the repeating sequence of questions, examine your true potential.

Every activity plays an important role while you are preparing for board exams. Your one mistake can cause a big difference in your overall board percentage. It has been observed that students are very anxious and nervous while sitting in the examination hall. The performance pressure is so powerful that they forget what they have prepared for the examination. 

To avoid this situation, here are some quick strategies that should be implemented to score excellent marks:

  • Maintain neatness and cleanliness while writing your answers. You should focus on your handwriting in leisure time to make your answer sheet look great and presentable. 
  • Highlight the key points in your answer sheet. You can also underline the important phrases in your answer sheet and make boxes around the answer. 
  • Instead of writing the copied answer, you can also work on writing the innovative answers to grab extra marks in the exams.
  • Make the right use of the additional 15 min and strategize which questions you are going to answer first. 
  • It is not mandatory to write the answers in the same order of the question paper. You should first answer those questions you know and then attempt the difficult ones.
  • Avoid writing a whole paragraph while answering the question. Write in bullet points to make the answer more effective, relevant, and easy to ready. You can also use diagrams to make the answer more meaningful.

Don’t try to revise everything one night before the exam. Instead of doing this, take a long sleep to relax your brain and remember things more accurately at the time of the exam. Even if you want to revise, get up early in the morning, open your notes, and do a quick revision of all the topics briefly.

All the best for your boards…!
