How to score good marks in exams?

The examination season is approaching soon with pre boards for class 10 and class 12 being planned in the month of January in many schools in India followed by board exams starting during last week of February with main papers exams to be held starting March.

The students feel tensed with mounting pressure from parents and teachers leading to lack of preparation and loosing confidence. Here are some useful tips which have been given by teachers of reputed schools in India based on interviews conducted by Studiestoday.

Read all points, some of them will surprise you !!!

a) Make a timetable: As the students have almost 4 months left for the exams, they should make a daily timetable of studying atleast 2 subjects everyday which should consist of revising the concepts given in the chapters and doing practice of the questions given at the end of the chapters or extra questions from any recommended book. Mathematics teachers have suggested that the students must do atleast 5 questions daily of any chapter but make sure that they change the chapter daily to keep revising the concepts.

b) Don’t go out of syllabus: This mistake is done by many students. In the race of doing more and more variety of questions, students tend to refer to many private publisher books which have many out of course concepts and questions. Students focus on such areas and ignore that part which will come in the exams. The best way is to follow NCERT books and do your preparations exactly as per the course and topics explained in the NCERT books.

c) Give importance to NCERT: In the past we have seen that more and more questions have started coming from NCERT itself and the exemplar problems issued by NCERT. Students must make sure that they have revised NCERT books multiple times and have also done the questions given at the end of each chapter in the NCERT books. If they have done this they can be sure that their preparation is complete as per the prescribed syllabus which is going to come in the exams.

d) Do sample papers: If the student feels confident that he/ she has completed the course. Give the student sample papers and ask them to solve the papers in examination condition at home. Make them sit at a quiet place and ask them to attempt the sample papers exactly the way they will do it in the exams. Either you can send the answer sheets to the teacher for checking or you can yourself compare the answers with the solutions available. Wherever there are mistakes please explain the child and make them discuss it with their teachers.

e) Play time: Ensure that the child spends atleast one hour outside home in a playground. This will help them to get some fresh air and make them physically active. Do not give them mobile phones or playstations to play. They must do some physical activity and play some outdoor sports. If not possible take them with you to market for some time to give them a break

f) Social media: As much possible make them stay away from social media platforms and unnecessary exposure to the web. This will distract them and make their mind wander away even if they are studying.

Do not create unnecessary pressure on students prior to exams, rather be a part of the preparation process and help them wherever necessary. Spend quality time and create happy atmosphere at home during such a stressful time. All the best !
