If you are a 12th class student, then the most common question asked by you would be – “how to score more than 90+ in the board exam?’’ Well, every student is different and there is not fixed path to score more than 90+ in the boards.
But there are some tips and strategies, a student must follow if he really wishes to score this high percentage in the board exams.
Here in this article, we have shortlisted some of those tips for you to read and implement and get a great score in the board exams. So, without any further ado, let go!
– DEFEAT YOURSELF
Craft 2 instances of yourself, first in your past and the other one is your present. Now juggle between your past and present. Keep in mind that you have to defeat your past at any cost. If you can’t do this, then don’t dream of having a great score in the board exams.
You must defeat your previous percentages; your present has to be better than your past.
Above everything, your target should be to do better than you have done before.
– STICK WITH YOUR SYLLABUS BOOK – MIND IT!
Most of the students run after heavy weight reference books. They tend to underestimate their syllabus books.
But they forget that these books are the best to practice with. You must have noticed that the high scoring students always stick to the syllabus textbooks. This is because they know the true significance of these syllabus books.
The reference books are a good option to study but for those students who want to be a part of competitive exams after class 12th. But, if you want to score above 90 percent in the board exams, you should stick with your syllabus textbooks.
The syllabus books are designed as per the syllabus. This has never happened in the history of board exams that a question came out of the syllabus.
– BE CAUTIOUS WITH YOUR WEAK POINTS
You must know your weak points and find out ways on how to make them strong? You must keep this question in mind while preparing for your boards.
Pick up your answer sheets of pre-boards and class tests and have a deep look into your answers and highlight your mistakes.
Question yourself; will I repeat these mistakes in the board exams too? With a big No, start debugging your mistakes, work hard upon them, and scratch them to their depths.
You must see it as a mission to convert those weak points into stronger ones.
– TIME WILL KILL YOUR MARKS
Effective time management is one of the biggest factors responsible for marks. You are not a kid and very well know the definition of time management. But you still don’t take it seriously while preparing for the boards.
You are in your 12th standard. Never in your life, will you see the school again. And trust me, you will never study with such enthusiasm again as you are doing right now. Why not make this prep more beautiful by applying time management on it?
Here are some effective time management tips for you:
– Study the learning subjects like chem, bio etc. at morning time. This will help you retain things for a longer time.
– You should make a healthy sleep of 5 to 6 hours only and save time for study from there.
– During the last three months, you should not join or continue things like coaching classes etc. Save that time for self-study and making notes.
– You must study for at least 8 hours a day, if you really want 90+ in boards.
– Give equal time to your main subjects. But do not neglect other subjects like English, Hindi, etc.
To sum up, you need to study at least 8 hours a day and drag it to 9 to 10 hours on holidays like Sunday. Though this sounds crazy, but the 90+ achievers did that and made their percentage possible.
– SOLVE PREVIOUS YEAR PAPERS
Most of the students do not understand the value of old assets. They spend most of their time and money on reference books. They completely neglect at the previous year papers.
Believe it or not, the past year papers act as a key to success in getting the mind blowing percentage in your 12th class. Don’t waste your money in buying costly material. The internet is full of stuff; you can find anything, anytime.
Solving past papers is like giving past board exams. Take each paper seriously as if you are sitting in the exam hall of board exam.
Don’t look out for the answers without solving the paper on your own completely. The past year papers are crucial as:
• They tell you the difficulty level of questions.
• Helps you figure out recurring questions as some cute questions show their faces in every board exam.
• Helps in figuring out your true level of securing marks
– DON’T UNDERESTIMATE ENGLISH
Yes, yes, physics, chemistry, maths, bio are crucial. But dear student, do you remember you have one more subject called English?
Majority of the students do not take this subject seriously and during result time, this subject becomes responsible for the drop of overall percentage.
English can be used as a marks booster in making a high percentage. All you need to do is to study it, at least, once a week.
Also pay attention to handwriting while preparing for English. You can score at least 5 marks just by working on your presentation skills.
– DON’T MAKE YOUR ANSWER SHEET LOOK FILTHY
Scoring 90+ marking is not a joke. Every single mark can make a huge difference from 89.9 to 90%.
Every step matters while you are preparing for the board exams. Neatness and cleanliness are amongst them. You will get marks on the basis of your answer sheet, and not on the basis of your hard work and all. So, everything that is linked to your answer sheet matters.
Try to make your sheet look great. Work on your handwriting, if it is not good.
Try to underline the important phrases in your sheet, make boxes around the answer (for mathematics paper), and things of this kind.
Implementing this tip will add up to 10 marks in your board exams, so why not work on it?
– THE NIGHT JUST BEFORE THE EXAM
Around 10 per cent of your marks depend on the night before your exam. Make use of this night not for studying, but for resting and making your mind feel relaxed.
Your mind must be full of questions like – what will happen tomorrow, will the exam be tough, and all. Rather than worrying, you must sleep as earlier as possible and do not even try to revise your study stuff at all.
This will help in resetting your brain and you will remember the things more accurately at the time of the exam.
– DO’S AND DON’T’S ON THE EXAM DAY
You must not let your confidence down, when you find something is yet to study. Let it go. You must not ruin all other topics just because of that one topic.
You have given 10th board exam as well. You know that struggle and you know how helpful it is to juggle with notes just before the exam!
Don’t carry your study material to your exam center. Go with a free and relaxed mind. Don’t talk about topics. Just stay calm and wait for the exam. Make yourself feel more confident and strong.
– DURING THE EXAM
Before reading the question paper, believe that you are well familiar with each and every question and know how to present each question in the paper. This self defence mechanism works really well. You will feel more positive if you think this way and you will perform double for sure!
Now, in the advance 15 min, read every question to its root and understand it.
Though you may be stuck with some questions while reading them in the advance 15 min, and this will make you bit worried. Don’t get panic, you will find a way to solve it later. Skip that particular question and move on to the next one.
Try to attempt the 5 markers first because you cannot do them when there is shortage of time. You can easily do the 1 and 2 markers in lesser time.
Attempt every question with same focus as each question is important. Make diagrams wherever necessary. They will leave a good impression on the checker’s mind.
Do not waste more time on doing a particular question. If you have solved previous year papers, you will know how to manage the time.
– DON’T LEAVE THE EXAM HALL SOON
You have studied for the board exam for an entire year. So use the exam hours as much as possible in a good way.
Don’t hurry to leave the exam hall after completing your paper, wait till the last second of the exam. Check your answer sheet again and again.
If you feel you have done everything correctly, then you are absolutely wrong. Locate your silly mistakes and rectify them.
These were some of the crucial things you must keep in mind if you want to score 90+ in your 12th board exams. Achieving this goal is not a joke and you really need to work hard and very hard.
