- Balance the Subjects: Repetitive studies is what you should avoid. Don’t stick to one subject. Try to cover all the subjects and give more time to your weak subjects. Make a weekly timetable to cover all your subjects. This way you will be able to cover up the entire syllabus.
- Take Breaks: Continuous studies are also not good. Break your daily studies into segments where you can take breaks and relax your mind. Listen to songs or take a fifteen-minute tea break after every 3 hours of studies to keep your mind fresh.
Revision and Mocks:
- Retain what you have learned: preparation without revision is incomplete. Unless you are able to recall what you have studied, you will not be able to give your 100% in the board exams. Devote the weekends to revise what you have studied over the week.
- Cover the Left-outs: Revising what you have studied will also help you in covering topics that you had left out for later and doubts that you need to clear.
- Mocks: Give mock exams and solve last year question papers to make yourself familiar with the board exam pattern. This will also help you in understanding your speed and approach towards the question paper.
