    What are the best ways to prepare for class 10th board exam (CBSE)?

  • Priyanka Chadda Feb-13-2019 11:55:18 AM ( 3 months ago )

    Hey All this is total CRAP for boards nothing is needed AT ALL only NCERT only few practice paper before exams and that's ALL.

    I remember my classmates studying S.Chand,Pradeep,R.S Aggarwal, R.S. Verma and all but nothing comes from and this is the reality of CBSE Boards. Many of my friends went for coaching for JEE since 9th went to tuition as even talked as the are leading scientists of INDIA :P but none of this works, better is to concentrate on subjects like English and Social Science which many people think is derogatory and useless as they would pursue science after 12th but  the important matter is how you could manage variety of subjects even when you may not like all of them. And i strongly recommend these subjects are good to improve the "SOFT SKILLS" which is important in each and every field

    I still remember how sleepy i felt remember those geography answers and writing English answers or even biology but matter is giving importance to all subjects is important.

    JUST UNDERSTAND CONCEPTS as given in simple way in NCERT.

    P.S I never attended any coaching or tuition or any reference book in 10th and still got CGPA 10 and AIR 190 in JEE so main thing is to concentrate on what your aim is now

    Okay, so 10th grade is honestly going to be the easiest out there, provided you are regular.

     

    And trust me, instead of thinking about 10th class as only a time where you'd have to work your head off only to get a 10 CGPA on your report card , think about 10th grade as a time to learn all those cool and awesome things you've always wanted to learn..

    P.S : Trigonometry is one of them!

    10th grade is also gonna be one of the best times in your life, and trust me on this one, YOU ARE GOING TO MISS YOUR 10TH CLASS , specially if you're planning to join a different school/ college. So don't forget to enjoy it and cherish the memories you'll form :)

    Coming to academics, 10th grade science is pretty awesome. Try being naturally curious and trust me you'll lovee learning science bcuz its so cool!

    For bio, practice your diagrams well, even when you don't have exams. Read every single word of your NCERT thoroughly. DON'T MUG UP, just READ. Read as if you're reading a book full of the coolest facts about the living world out there. Just make sure you don't miss a single “fact” :)

    Heredity and Evolution is an awesome chapter but you find a lot of general and vague questions from that one. For that, read that chapter specially well. Ask your teacher for further guidance. ABSOLUTELY NO NEED OF ANY REFERENCE BOOK.

    Now, Chemistry! To be honest, chem is the easiest of all the 3 science subjects and scoring good wasn't a problem. You're gonna have some VERY COOL chapters like carbon and compounds (aka the very basics of organic chem; bonus for you if you're taking sci after 10th :) and periodic table. Do carbon and compounds really well, it lays the foundation for orgo. Keep reading your ncert regularly. Again, JUST READING is the key. Don't mug.

    Coming to physics, 10th grade physics is actually easier than 9th grade. However, in my school, we had a very shitty physics teacher who could not (or rather would not) teach properly at all. So, while most of my classmates trooped to tuitions and coaching classes to properly learn physics, i did not. I simply bought a book- Lakhmir Singh and manjit kaur for physics and scored pretty awesome on every test :)

    Its a great book which explains concepts from chapters like ELECTRICITY and LIGHT better than NCERTs. Icing on cake: the HOTs( Higher Order Thinking Skills Questions) are not to be found in the NCERT and they're really cool :) However, if you have a good enough physics teacher, buying any book is not required AT ALL. Buy only if your teacher isn't great or if you're too weak at physics.

    For Boards, do your science practical book really well. Entire section dedicated to practical based questions. Also, pay attention during practical classes in labs. They help :)

    Okay, so 10th grade Math is AWESOME!!

    [ It has trigonometry + some of the coolest geometry chapters and you also get introduced to a new solid figure- Frustum of a cone!(after years of doing the same old boring solids in volume and surface area) . What else do you need?! :)]

    The key here is REGULAR PRACTICE. And when i say that, i mean every day.Nope, not a single day without math. Its about to be your BFF in the next few months :). Do all the solved examples of NCERT, exercises and optional exercises.

    After you finish NCERT, you MUST do R.D SHARMA. It is like The Bible for 10th grade math. Start early and practice daily , you'll ace it ;)

    10th grade English is pretty easy. For chapters like Rime of Ancient Mariner and Julius Caeser, make timelines in your own handwriting. Knowing what happens after what makes the literature part so much easier already. Also , pay attention while your teacher explains the chapters. :)

    For creative writing part, read a lot and write a lot. Read the NEWSPAPERS. Everyday. You may be asked to write letter to editor/ articles etc based on current events. So read the newspapers. Also,practice writing short stories if you can. Plenty of writing prompts available on the net. Thats the only way to improve your writing skills.

    For the grammar part, you could buy a CBSE grammar practice book, but only if you're really weak at grammar. I was personally quite strong at English, and we had a great teacher, so i didn't need any books. PRACTICE is again very essential for grammar.

    Coming to social science, NCERT is KEY. SST is probably the subject , along with math which requires max. time and hardwork on your part. I made it easier for myself by reading my NCERT books regularly , not trying to memorise everything in a day, and spreading out my learning lessons over many days. Economics is pretty fascinating and so is Democratic politics. They're easier to learn as well. For Geo, you HAVE to memorise well, no other choice, bcuz the chapters are quite technical. For history, again , MAKE TIMELINES. Specially for the chapter with indian history and the vietnam french war chapter. Making short (very short ) timelines, is important bcuz the sequence of events , (in indian history specially is important ). Overall, if you enjoy social, there's plenty to learn from 10th grade, bcuz Its as awesome as it gets!

    P.S: I didn't have Hindi for 10th, I had French instead , so couldn't help with Hindi.

    So basic summary: ENJOY WHAT YOU LEARN, BE CURIOUS, WATCH VIDEOS , MAKE NOTES, SHARE WHAT YOU KNOW, AND PRACTICE REGULARLY, WORK HARD, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY CHILLAX AND ENJOY! 10th grade is beautiful! You'll ace it !

    Feel Free to comment if you have any doubts!

    P.S: I got 10 CGPA , 96.5% in CBSE BOARDS

    :)

    Its been years since I passed my board exams. I am sure a lot has changed in the syllabus and pattern. My suggestions are, hence meant for the art of reading rather than the pin pointed exam preparation.

     
    1. Read, Revise and multiple times revise your school class notes. Otherwise it is as good as waste. It will remain in your notebook, wont make a place in your mind.
    2. After every day of school, when you are revising your notes, add important points from standard text book which were missed in the class. Keep this regular. In the end, you wont have to refer to your book. You will have concise notes of yourself.
    3. Then comes the most important step if you want to score high. Thats practicing questions and tests. As far as memory and scoring is concerned nothing else will give you as much dividend as this step. Once you are done with your revision (say 3–4 times) and compilation, do not keep on mugging. Switch to answering. That will do the work of 5 revisions in one go.
    4. Get your answers reviewed by your teachers. In our minds we have done our work once we have recalled all the information. But its not just information, its structuring of the information. Your teachers will help you in this. This will do the work of captivating the examiner till the end of your answer.
    5. Work on your handwriting. That hits in the very beginning and gives a good impression. It should be neat, legible and aligned. Do not overwrite. If you think you will be doing this straight in the examination hall, that ain’t gonna happen. You will have to make them a part of your personality.
    6. Practice including diagrams and flowcharts in your answers. Make the job easier for the examiner by serving your points on an easy platter.

    On a broader panel, some words of wisdom from my experience:

    Boards are supposed to be your entry into the age of competition. Therefore it seems like it is a break or make exam. There are expectations and hence the fear of loss. That leads to depressions and in extreme cases suicide attempts.

    But let me tell you while it is a stepping stone, it is definitely not life changing. You will get plenty of chances in life. Hence do not make it a marks bandwagon. Study smart for marks. But study from the heart to learn forever.

    At this stage you should fall in love with concepts in geometry, trigonometry, algebra; you should flirt with chemistry and apply physics in daily life. Literature should become your doors for wisdom and language for daily communication. History should teach you that nothing is permanent and that we should learn from our past to build our future rather than being a prisoner of past. And geography will highlight the beauty in mother earth.

    This is a time to study in coherence for after boards your area of studies will get more and more narrow and deep. Therefore prepare yourself for an interesting journey. Spend time with friends. Help each other in understanding concepts. Ask questions to your teacher. Develop awareness of general knowledge. Develop self confidence.

    All the best!!

  • Deepak Parmar Feb-13-2019 12:00:43 PM ( 3 months ago )

     

    Mathematics- The FEAR of most of the indian students.Dear friends, its not tough at all. Infact it is the only subject in which you are guaranteed a good score if you have worked for it. I also feared mathematics 2 years back and that cost me my grades in SA1. Students don't score good marks in maths because most of them prepare for this subject like any other subject - read theory, solve numericals and its over.Friends, maths demands practice, practice and practice. Eventually I realised this and my grades significantly improved in the Boards i.e SA2.

     

    NOW coming to the preparation strategy:-

    The question paper setters are obsessed with one book RD SHARMA. Not the complete book, its not required. Just solve the solved examples at least twice and you will be able to solve 80% questions in the exam. For 100% you must solve NCERT book 2–3 times.

    For SCIENCE

    No extra book required here.NCERT contains everything. Nothinng will come out of that but i will advice you to to buy a book called Xamidea and solve it during the last 1–2 months of preparation.

    For ENGLISH

    Very easy. Literature part is nothing. Just focus on your writing skills and vocabulary. Use wise words in writing answers and you will be through. Don't write too long answers.

    For SOCIAL SCIENCE

    Buy a book called ALL IN ONE SOCIAL SCIENCE by arihant. Its a very nice book and contains revision sheets and brain maps. Read this book completely before exams. But few days before the exam, don't touch any other book, just read NCERT again and again and again and again…….

    For HINDI/SANSKRIT

    I don't have idea about sanskrit as i was a hindi student but according to my friends some sample papers and school books are enough.

    For hindi,just read the story once patiently and go to the exam. Don't forget to see previous year question papers. Use a book ‘Golden Hindi’ for extra preparation if you want to be completely assured for above 90.

    Thats all.

    Hope it helps.

    Good luck for the exams.

  • Ayushi Jain Feb-13-2019 12:01:47 PM ( 3 months ago )

     

    Well, as I have recently given the 2017–18 Board Exams, I am eligible for answering this question.

     

    So let's begin.

    Don't take the board exams to be something very hard. If you manage time properly, you will be able to score awesome.

    Let me tell one thing.. People find those subjects hard which they have not studied properly. Now to your question:

    • Study Everyday: Well, it might appear to be very hurtful but it is actually the truth. I hadn't properly studied during the beginning of X considering it to be easy. And in the end, I had to study rigorously and it was a tough time. However, I gave my board exams amazingly. But that was mere luck. Listen to me. Whenever you come from school, go through the notes that were taught. If you have any doubts, mark them and ask the teacher the next day. If you aren't satisfied then research on your own from the Internet (which I always used to do as I was shy and very self-contained and was not able to ask teachers.)
    • Make a proper routine. IF YOU CAN MANAGE YOUR TIME PROPERLY, YOU WILL BE RELAXING. At the end of the session, you will find that you could complete all your syllabus in time.
    • Do not Procastinate. Don't ever think to do things afterwards. Do it then and then. Procastinating is the biggest ever obstacle to your success in Class 10.
    • Sleep properly. It is very important for you to have a good sleep. Your mind needs refreshment right? As I had procastinating and not done things in time, at the end I had to wake up night after night and study.
    • Do not study at one go. Your brain is not a machine. It cannot remember and learn everything at once. Go through the topics with breaks and enjoy.
    • Don't leave one topic after learning it. This is the biggest mistake. If you have gone through a chapter and don't go through for day after day, it is very probable that you will forget parts of it.
    • Don't mug up. Until 9, it can be strategic if you mugged up topics. But 10 is such an area where mugging up things would never help. I thank God that I never understood topics until I went through them thoroughly.
    • Pinpoint your weaknesses and try to work after them. Work daily and create checkpoints. When you reach a checkpoint, reward yourself.
    • Complete the topics by a certain time.(Which I had done)
    • At the end of the session, when you have completed all the topics, practise sample papers, last year question papers and don't have a peek at your book during that time. Try to complete the paperwork within the required time. If you have completed it within the time limit, reduce the time limit and try to finish the paper. Again when you have finished it, reduce the time limit and try to finish. This would help you to write all the answers very fast and in the exam hall, it will fetch you more time to revise. This would also help to recall facts much faster.

    Now to the books you should use according to my experience:

    1. For maths, I would seriously recommend to go for RD Sharma. It is the best book I have ever gone through. It explains all the topics in the best way possible and try to go through it repeated times if you don't understand topics. You could also buy RS Agarwal but I don't think it will help much. It just lists topics in a short way whilst RD Sharma explains them. However, for the first chapter that is Real Numbers, you could go with RS Agarwal as it has methods which are shorter.
    2. For Social Science,(which was the subject that I just didn't like) you should strictly follow NCERT. As a support book, you could buy Arihant All-in-One. It just lists all the facts from NCERT in a short way. Sometimes, it may omit some facts which it did in Novels Chapter and at the same time, it also contains some grammatical mistakes as well. So while reading All In One, you should also go through NCERT.
    3. For English, you could go for All in One again. The English version has less grammatical mistakes. It also has sample papers which you could practise. For further grammar understanding, you could buy Wren and Martin. For the literature part, read both All in One and NCERT(at least once, completely in the beginning).
    4. If you have your second language to be Hindi(which I had) you could go for Golden which is a very good guide book for the thing. However, some grammar concepts may not be listed in it. In that case, you could also buy Full Marks(Vyakaran Pravesh) with it. I don't know about other subjects.
    5. For Science, I woul seriously recommend you to divide it into Bio, Chem and Phy and then consult these books: HC Verma's Foundation Science Physics, Foundation Science Chemistry and Dinesh Bio. For chemistry, you must also go through the NCERT BOOK.
    6. If you have computers as your subject, (which I had) go for All in One once again(even though I didn't buy it). What I did was researching in the Internet, downloading tutorials and other things. There are actually two computer subjects one is FIT and the other Computer Science. I had FIT and it had HTML as a chapter. What I did for that was I bought a book named HTML and CSS a beginners Guide from Thomas E. Powell. But beware, it is a very very advanced book. And out of syllabus too. I liked computers way more than any other subject and didn't consider it to be just a subject. So with that book, I researched online as well. It also has CSS Explaination and that Explaination is better than the HTML part but CSS wasn't in the syllabus though. So it is better to avoid such things and buy All in One as I had seen one of my friends having it and when I read it, it did contain some extra parts but all was good.

    So If you follow all these things, then it is very sure that you can get an awesome result in your Class 10 Board Exams.

    Hope that helps!

    So, you are going to appear for your 10th board exams and may be wondering if it is possible to score 99% in your 10th class examination. Well, I would like to say you, “Yes, it is possible”. It is not easy, but can be done, if you really want to do it.

     

    People might ask what is so special about 99% marks. It is just that anyone can score 90%. That is not at all difficult. Even a student with average intelligence, who studies hard can score 90%. But 99% marks mean that you have mastered the complete syllabus. There is no one better than you. You are the champion of champions.

    Well, first of all remember that there is nothing that you cannot achieve. It might be a 99% in your board exams or anything else in your life, everything is possible,if you truly want to achieve it. All it takes is a lot of hard work and perseverance.

    Secondly, remember that there is no shortcut to success and you must try harder to make it right. Just be positive and focus on to your goal.

    Important points to get 99% marks in your 10th Exams

    • Don’t count hours, study till youunderstand a topic completely. As soon as you understand something, write it down in your own language to make your own notes.
    • Important thing is the planning. To make sure that you do not lose your track in between, you must have asolid plan of study. Make a plan in the very beginning and follow it for the complete year. Start off from the topics that you don’t have much confidence on. These topics are the ones, which are difficult for you to understand, to grasp and to remember. Study those topics first, keep two books with you (one rough and the other for revising it during exam). Make your own notes for the difficult topics first.
    • The next thing is the study pattern. If you really want to achieve that 99% target, you must love your books. Yes, you must be completely in love with them. Do not take study as a burden, but try to like it. Your study pattern plays a big role. Try to make your study interesting.
    • Make a schedule (time table), which would eventually help you in tracking your completion everyday.
    • Do not compromise with your health.Give enough time for other important things that you like to do like games, music, food and friends.
    • Do not worry even if you cannot complete the syllabus in first 6 months, but make sure that youcomplete it twice or thrice before the exam.
    • Before going to sleep at night, revise everything that you have studied on that day.
    • There is no shortcut or trick to score above 90.Hard work and dedication is all it takes.

    Preparation Tips for Subjects

    Class 10 Science

    The CBSE Class 10 Science mainly focuses on the following areas – Chemistry, Physics and Biology. Those students who wish pursue the science stream in class XI are advised to strictly focus on all these three areas as this will clear their foundations.

    1. The complete list of formulae, experiments and derivationsshould be kept handy.
    2. It’s a strict no-no to miss the science laboratory lectures and classes. Utilize the science laboratory as much as you can for every single experiment.
    3. The NCERT books are to be followed thoroughly to score well in Science. Almost the whole question paper revolves around the concepts that are given in the NCERT book.
    4. Some science formulas have certain rules that you strictly need to follow and use it correctly. For example, to use the quadratic formula; you must first change the equation to the standard quadratic form.
    5. PHYSICS-Get a grip on the fundamental concepts of the subject. A major part of the exam contains direct formulae- and theorem-based questions. Therefore, revise them thoroughly to solve questions accurately. Use the formulae and theorems extensively in solving various problems from last years’ papers and model papers.
    6. CHEMISTRY-The good news is this is a high-scoring subject, and also requires lesser time for preparation. Speed and accuracy in solving different problems can be acquired through in-depth study of the subject and extensive practice. Study the name reactions; make charts of formulae along with names and revise them as and when possible.
    7. BIOLOGY-As the subject includes lots of diagrams, give special attention to important diagrams and their theory. Make sure you remember the important terms and their respective functions. Biology involves learning and memorising difficult terminology. Write such terms repeatedly so as to get acquainted with them. Get thorough with the important definitions as the subject is mostly theory.

    Class 10 Math

    The CBSE Class 10 Class 10th mathematics focuses on the basic geometry, trigonometry and the concept of numbers. The subject helps to build a basic aptitude and concepts that would be beneficial for the students who wish to appear for the aptitude based tests in future.

    1. The class 10 Maths formulas are otherwisevery general, but sometimes it is seen in the previous question papers that the questions are asked from the middle of such numerical which you have to identify it.
    2. The concepts/formulas sheet should be kepthandy.
    3. You should know the usage of all the Maths formulas.
    4. If you really want to score an A1 in math exam, then it is really important to completely be in synch with your NCERT book. Almost the whole questions paper comprises of the concepts and formulas that are given in the NCERT book.
    5. If you are solving a problem based question, it is advisable to read the problem again and again to get theexact idea of what you’re being asked to solve.
    6. Write down in a rough paper, exact what it is given in the question paper and what you are asked to find. Then in a systematic way, try and find what is asked to you.
    7. Once the revision is done, start solving thesample papers, unsolved papers and practice papers within the given set of time.

    Class 10 Social Studies

    Although social science may seem dull, use study tools to make it fun. Flash cards, timelines, colorful charts and funny mnemonics can help you study in addition to textbook and notes reading. In 10th class either your social sciences studies are beginning or ending.

    1. Read the course once without trying to remember it, just read like you would read the newspaper or novel and try to understand it.
    2. Prioritize your subjects and topics according tomarks weight-age and easy and difficult chapters and use this list to create a practical study schedule.
    3. Take notes for specific points you feel are important and you are likely to forget, in addition to school notes.
    4. Create a chart with important dates, flip through it often and you will find that you are able to easily remember the dates.
    5. Study subject-wise rather than from all topics combined; they were separated for a reason.
    6. Use flash cards for definitions and also for various history events; flash cards help for fun and quick revision.
    7. Practice map work by tracing the important locations you want to remember, then try locating on a blank map
    8. Understand economicsandpoliticalscience, its better than to try to memorize.
    9. Solve previous year papers/ sample papers to practice writing within word limits.

    Class 10 English

    1. Unseen passage/note making: This is an extremely scoring section and needs the least amount of effort comparatively. Read the passage carefully and you will be able to find the links to answer the questions.
    2. Writing skills: Follow formats religiously. Majority of the questions in this section are for 10 marks, divided into 3 marks for format, 4 for content and 3 for fluency/accuracy of English as far as I remember. Look at sample letters, articles from reference books to improve thinking skills and get an idea of presentation. The board examiners would much rather prefer an exhaustive article with lots of ideas and inputs by the student than just repetitive arguments in flowery language.
    3. Grammar: Practice, practice, practice. Brush up basic rules and attempt as many questions as possible and learn from the mistakes you make.
    4. Literature: Read all the chapters very thoroughly. Specially for poems, write in your book or a separate notepad all that your teacher explains. Having said that, you should also realize that understanding the chapter is not enough as you will be expected to write 7-10 mark answers in the exam. Keeping this in mind, try to attempt past year papers and questions from other reference material and try to frame long answers. Each of these long answers should have an introduction, body and conclusion. Aim for about 150-200 words spread across 3-4 paragraphs.

    Class 10 Hindi

    1. It is fairly easy to score 90+ in this paper 12th boards. But to score in late 90s, you need to study the NCERT textbooks really well. They are extremely useful.
    2. Get a question bank cum guide (Golden is one of them) and practice questions.
    3. Solve past year papers (Arihant, Oswal or any of the available sources), check against the solutions provided. In fact, a lot many times questions are just repeated in exams.
    4. This is it. These 3 simple things will equip you to score 95+ in the paper.

    Keep your mind fresh and never falter.

    Don't get stressed too much my friend. At the end you too will realise that was it really a thing of being stressed !.

    I have recently given the class 10th boards in march and scored 95% studying these books.☺

    Therefore I will suggest you to focus mainly on ncert. Once you are done with ncert completely,revise it at least 2–3 times for all subjects. Ncert must be on your tips. After ncert you may switch to the following books.

    •For Maths- RD Sharma,ncert Exemplar (quite high level), u-like sample paper is must, Oswal sample paper, Arihant sample paper (high level)

    •For Science- lakhmir Singh for theory,concepts and questions , ncert exemplar is must, ulike sample paper or question practice

    For English- golden guide or jph guide, Full marks assignment book or explanation book for questions

    For Hindi- jph guide is perfect. It contains grammar,chapters explanation, book questions,extra questions, and writing and reading practice too.

    For SST- full marks guide, or kundra and Bawa.

    P.S.- before doing all these guides one of the most important thing for boards is practising the previous year question papers with proper time (alarm clock-3hrs )and fair sheets like you are really sitting for an examination. It will boost your confidence and helps u know where you lack.

    Hope this helps…

    Best wishes…☺

    Well others have already given you a subject-wise detailed answer, so I will give you some general tips.

     
    1. Preparation
    • Read the NCERT thoroughly and by that I mean read it with a cool head, not an aim to memorize the entire thing.
    • Write notes along your paragraphs. This benefits you in many ways. If you need quick revision, you can just read the points. Also, it acts as a visual aid as you tend to remember your handwriting better.
    • Form questions in each paragraph. NCERT can be particularly monotonous and you can also get lost midway. So form tiny questions beside lines, because Board has a habit of giving you questions picking up lines and telling you to explain them.
    • Check the example questions in your supplementary books. This helps especially in maths and science, because most supplementary books cover NCERT syllabus so have suitable questions based on that. They also solve NCERT questions, giving you an impetus.
    • Consult guide books ONLY FOR QUESTIONS. Please guys, this is an earnest request. Everything you need is in your NCERT, all you need to do is look for it. If absolutely necessary then check the key points in the answers so that you know what they’re asking for. But don’t try to learn anything new.
    • Keep practising the maps. Improves accuracy and also acts as a good break between subjects.
    • Don’t study for too long. Even if people scare you about the Boards, trust me, it will go better than you think. Don’t study harder than your capacity, or the stress will get to you. Treat it like regular annual exams.
    • Don’t just read, write answers. Not only a visual aid, but also helps you get in the habit of writing answers like they should be written. Reduces mistakes.

    2. Writing the examination

    • Leave lines between your bullets. Makes it cleaner and helps the examiner find the points clearly. It will cost you some extra sheets but it is worth it.
    • Underline keywords. Very basic, yet very useful as important terms are checked by the examiner directly without having to go through your answers line by line.
    • Leave space on the right margins. Board answer papers are in the landscape form, hence sentences and lines are extremely long and monotonous. Write in a fixed margin, makes presentation neater and gives space to the examiner to give the marks clearly, avoiding counting mistakes on his part.
    • Leave 2–3 lines after each answer. Very, very helpful. I can’t begin to describe how many times I have lost marks because the examiner overlooked the question during marking. Draw an ending line, and these three lines can also be used by the examiner to give his remarks.
    • Have a large handwriting. Board teachers are checking all day, the last thing they need is to squint their eyes.
    • Draw as many diagrams as possible. Works in Science. Even a rough pencil sketch works.
    • Do not cross the word limit. Important for English and SSt. If you think there are many valid points, try and mention as many points as possible but in this case explain them as briefly as possible.
    • Leave space for an answer if you can’t solve it. Do not do it at the end. Examiners hate having to turn pages to find your question, Might even cause mistakes in counting. Also, leave space so that after your exam is over, you can come back to add some details of your own,
    • Drink water and stay hydrated because you should.

    That’s all I could think of for now. ALL THE BEST but you’re good enough for that so you wouldn’t need it. And don’t aim for 99%, aim for writing a good exam you’re proud of and can rub it to your kids.
