Though a lot has changed since we were taught and sat for our boards’ exam, there are still a lot of things that haven’t, and that is… Students get jittery just before the exam and struggle to find a final strategy to score full marks in Term I of the board exam because there is…
- The palpitation of revisions yet to be made
- FOMO on the chapters that your friend might have covered but you skipped
- The anxiety of forgetting all that you’ve learned, all the formulas you’ve mugged up…
Yes, the list can go long but to score full marks on your CBSE Term 1 Exam, you need to have an efficient and solid strategy that will help you achieve your academic excellence and not exhaust you.
You have successfully cast your vote
Worry not, as we were once students too, and in this article, we’ve shared a few of CBSE Term I Board Exam Preparation Tips that we’ve learned in our lives to help you ace your exams confidently!
5 Tips to Prepare for Board Exams:
1. Self-assess your strengths and weaknesses
You need to first understand which subjects are your strengths and which are your weaknesses. It might seem like a very simple thing, but it makes a huge difference. Analyze which topics you have expertise in and which ones need your special attention.
Suppose you can solve 20 math’s equations in 5 minutes but need time to solve Physics theories in the MCQ, then devote more time to preparing for Physics and solving relevant sample papers.
Solve as many CBSE MCQs Objective Questions and Sample Papers to be confident.
2. Plan proper time management
Often, as students, we complain that the authorities don’t allow us extra time, but actually, the fault is in our stars! We can’t blame anyone if we didn’t manage our time well. Time is precious and that is felt vividly in exams. Each second counts, so manage your time properly.
Take as many mock tests as possible and be truthful with yourself. Track how much time are you spending on a particular question or topic? If you think you are spending a lot, you must keep a check on it and improve it.
3. Practice diligently but take breaks
One thing we are all guilty of is making timetables but never sticking to them consistently. The problem here is that our timetables are not realistic. It is not a productive strategy to ace your exams if you study for 10 hours straight one day and only study for 5 hours the next.
Whatever your target is, be sure to maintain consistency. Never rush things. Understanding core concepts and basics properly. Divide your study time into hours and never study for 10 hours at a stretch. Take breaks and use the Pomodoro technique while solving your sample papers Term I for CBSE boards.
4. Prioritize mental health and focus
Exam stress and fatigue are real things and should not be overlooked. As much as it is important to keep up with your physique, be sure to care for your mind. Practice mindfulness meditation and concentration techniques to help you stay hyper focused, drink 3-4 liters of water, and go for walks.
Do not overwhelm yourself and compare yourself with friends; trust your process and believe in yourself.
5. Trust your academic friend
When you have done all the above, it is time to befriend your academic friend, books!
