Tips to Prepare for CBSE Class X Exams

Posted by sunainaram on December 22nd, 2015

Facing the public examinations for the first time can be a nerve-racking experience! With back-to-back special classes, coaching programs, mock tests and numerous seminars, the entire year of Class X can be an ordeal for students. It will seem as if everything you want to achieve in life is made impossible because of the huge hurdle you have in front of you in the form of your public examinations. Whether you are studying in one of the top CBSE schools in Mumbai or in a school located in a rural area, all students go through the same patch.

If you are studying in one of the leading CBSE schools in central Mumbai, then you will probably have more exposure to the academic field and subject matter experts. All these people will help you prepare for your exams. It doesn’t matter if you’re not in one of the renowned CBSE schools in Mumbai, here are some tips that can help you face your examinations with confidence. 

Know your syllabus

You should first be very clear on your syllabus, for each and every subject. Talk to your teachers to find out which chapters are important and concentrate on them. Marks will be allotted for each chapter, and based on that you can prepare for your exams. Work on chapters that have maximum marks allotment so that you will know how much you have prepared for your exams.

Question paper pattern and mock exams

You should also be very clear about the question paper pattern – the number of objective type, essays, diagrams and other options. You can also prepare for your examinations based on the paper pattern. Many of the CBSE schools in Mumbai will conduct mock tests and revision exams for students. These tests will allow you to familiarize yourself with the question paper pattern. Writing mock tests will also help you plan your time so that you will be able to complete the whole question paper within the three hours.

Set a timetable

Of course, your school will have a timetable for all the classes. You should prepare your own personal timetable for study. First set up study hours early in the morning and late at night. Find out which time suits you best. Though your elders may tell you that early morning studying is best, if you feel comfortable studying at night, do so. Plan to study difficult chapters during your “peak” hours and easy ones during your “off” hours. This way you can cover all the subjects and still not strain yourself.
