50 days to HSC board exam- the stress can be loud for every one whether it is an excellent student or the ones who haven’t started with their books. Its 11th December the stress is loud and everyone needs a solution. People opt out for private tuition or some kids even start studying for 14 hours a day to complete their portion and eventually disturb their health.
Here are some tips you can use to stop panicking and start scoring.
1. SMART WORK OVER HARD WORK.
Students get under peer pressure start studying for longer hours and try to complete more and more portion in a small interval of time. I wish that was helpful…!!
Instead of doing 4 chapters a day, do 1 chapter and revise it 4 times, this way you make sure that all your work is done on Quality grounds and you don’t tend to lose your memory on or before your exams.
2. FOCUS ON YOUR STRENGTHS RATHER YOUR WEAK POINTS.
Students tend to do a very simple mistake, they start with the most difficult topics first and then go the simpler ones. What actually happens is when you start with a difficult topic, there is a very high chance of you being demotivated with the outcome, and may be your interest in reading decreases.
It’s better to start with simpler topics first, cover maximum marks , get into the safe zone and then go with difficult topics, starting with simpler topics will help boost your self-confidence and empower you to start with complex topics.
Moreover it’s been observed that sometimes a set of 4 small chapters equals the weightage of 3 large chapters, so it’s better to work with easier and small chapters.
3. START SOLVING NUMERICAL
This is what all teachers say, not alone me. The only reason why teachers ask you to solve numerical is because they are scoring. All you need is to learn the formulae, understand under what conditions can you use the formulae, log books and some basic multiplication and your job is done.
Numerical form a very strong integral part in papers of PHYSICS and CHEMISTRY.
Comparing THEORY with NUMERICAL, theory answers need to be expressive and elaborately explained, you miss a point and you lose marks, whereas numerical on the other hand don’t need much; a basic analysis of the problem is all you need to start.
4. SOLVE MORE QUALITY QUESTIONS AND LESS QUANTITY.
I have seen students solving 10 questions of the similar type and thereby wasting your time, instead solve 5 questions of similar type and move to the next topic. Some students tend to read and memorize topics that are in connection with the portion.
Start with frequently asked questions (FAQ) from the chapter and then go to answers less asked.
You can take help of your teacher and get to know the FAQ’s and start learning and solving
5. WORK ACCORDING TO THE SIZE AND WEIGHT AGE OF THE CHAPTER.
Instead of wasting your time on a chapter that takes 20 hours to study, it’s better to study 3 small chapters within the same time and the marks are approximately same or at times even more.
6. FOCUS ON LANGUAGES.
We usually focus on PCMB courses and tend to neglect the languages or vocational subjects.
We need to remember that the total aggregate score is considered for learning core sciences (B.Sc. Courses) in the future focusing on only PCMB can be a mistake. If even you don’t wish to spare your study time for languages, spare the time you would spend on your break playing games on instagramming something to someone.
7. SOLVE PAST EXAM PAPERS AND MOCK TEST PAPERS.
Solve past papers can get a very strong idea about the past papers and you get a rough estimate about your paper. Moreover solving papers will reduce your phobia about papers, create some confidence in you if score well. You also understand the speed with which you should be writing papers.
8. SET A DAY ONLY FOR REVISION.
Only reading will not help, revising topics is a must. There are different ways you can do it, but the ones I recommend my students is, choosing a Sunday for revision would be best.
The plan goes this way, study for the whole week and revise everything that you have studied on a Sunday, you can also opt for a test on Sunday after the revision, and this would enable you to build a sense of confidence and security about the chapters.
9. STOP WASTING YOUR TIME
I have seen students sitting with a pile of books, and a mobile phone together, wondering which selfie to post on Instagram. Instead doing this, you can complete your first job and then move to the next, whichever important Of course Priority matters..!!!
10. TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH.
Most importantly take care of your health, have a sound sleep of 6-7 hours a day, maintain good dietary habits, eat less junk food, try doing yoga or a workout whichever fits you well and keeps your mind sound.
REMEMBER TO KEEP YOUR BASICS RIGHT AND KEEP YOURSELF HIGH ON ETHICS.
Wish you with the entire World’s Luck…….
