MAKE REALSTIC TIME TABLE -
Nobody knows you better than yourself. While making the timetable, be realistic about how much time you can devote to studying, which is your suitable time to study, Analyze your strengths and weaknesses, and divide your time judiciously catering to all these needs. Do include revision at the end of the day.

HANDWRITING AND NEATNESS -
When it comes to a subjective examination, handwriting and neatness have their own place. If you are struggling with very bad handwriting, work on making it legible (so that the examiner can at least read what’s written).
A neat and organized answer sheet is something that attracts examiners and thereby marks. So, develop a habit of keeping the answer sheet neat and clean.

You may follow the following tips :
  • Leave Appropriate gaps after every answer.
  • Use pencil and ruler to draw lines to separate the answer.
  • Underline important words with a pencil.
  • Draw diagrams/ flow charts wherever required.

PYQs -
When it comes to BOARDS, doing the previous year’s questions is a must. This not only gives you an idea about the examination but also hints you to the nature of questions and important topics asked frequently. CBSE has released its sample papers. Kindly go through that before the exam. It has been observed that similar questions are asked in the examination if not the same.

DO NOT IGNORE ENGLISH -
Apart from the core science subjects, students also have one language paper (generally English), which most students ignore. But you need to understand that your Board’s percentage depends upon all the subjects. So, kindly do not ignore the language paper (English). Devoting at least a day in a week is sufficient to score good marks.


ANSWER WRITING PRACTISE & MOCK TEST -
Subjective papers demand good and neat answers written at the appropriate time. This can only be developed with practice. You need to give real-time mock tests. Suppose your Board exams are from 10 am-1 pm, so, from one month prior to the exam, give the mock test during this time. This will not only help you to get acquainted with the exam pressure but also develop muscle memory.

REVISION -
You cannot remember everything you have studied. You need to revise the topics frequently. Do not refer to multiple books a single time but a single book multiple times. For CBSE, the standard textbook is NCERT, so make sure that you have referred to it multiple times. You can use the 0-1-7-15-30 rule to revise.
