Boost Your Percentage in Class 10th CBSE Boards: 7 Tricks to Try

Class 10 Board exams are something children hear all their schooling life. It has been glorified as a crucial pedestal in one learning journey. But to everyone’s surprise, it is just another grade or year of study. Ways to prepare for the exam don’t even differ, unlike parents who are on top of students’ heads asking them to give their best and put in extra effort compared to other grades.

A student must always keep in his/her mind that the process is in their hands, and when they follow the process rightly, there’s no need to worry about the outcome. To help you boost your percentage in class 10th CBSE Board exams and enlighten you with the correct process, here are a few tricks you can follow:

1) Knowing the Exam Pattern & Syllabus

Before stepping into anything, one must know it completely. It is so apt in the case of exams too. For any exam, not just Class 10, you must thoroughly go through the exam pattern and syllabus, as it will help you with the types of questions and the number of questions asked, topics to cover, and the marking scheme. Ensure this step for every subject and you will have a clear mind about the exam of the respective subject.

2) Design a schedule or study timetable and ensure you work accordingly

The next step or trick is to plan how you will go about the preparation. Certain subjects are your forte or you find interesting and easy, while on the other hand, there may be a few that you think require more attention and application. Sometimes, certain topics ask for a greater amount of energy and time to be understood. But don’t forget to ace the other easy-looking lessons as well. Eventually, keep all this in mind and prepare a planner that will guide you to a swift and stressless preparation for the exams.

3) Emphasise understanding the concepts while studying

Many students mug up theories or texts but are not clear about the concepts. There is a high chance that they will mix up the concepts and end up confused. A twisted question will challenge them and leave them with no answer. Practical knowledge or application of the concept will stay with them forever, even after the exams.

4) Making notes

Underlining important lines or sections and writing down the contest, gist, or your understanding of the topic will help you a lot with memorising. Also, when you come back for revising concepts, going through all the lines may seem like a mammoth task, whereas skimming through your notes and highlighted parts will help you immensely.

5) Take breaks while studying

Always give importance to quality over quantity in life. While preparing, don’t aim at sitting for 10 or 12 hours straight, and be proud that you sat for those many hours. Focus on productive learning, take short breaks while studying, and refresh your mind so that it can process the information and imbibe more. However, these breaks don’t mean switching to mobile phones or electronic devices. They will consume your energy and you will not have the required rest. The best thing is you can exercise, go for a stroll, or take a nap.

6) Study in groups

At Divya Jyot, a CBSE school in Shilaj, Ahmedabad, we value cohesive learning. Studying in groups has an array of benefits. Certain topics or a particular subject that may seem challenging to you can be made a lot easier by your friend that has expertise in it. You can solve each other’s doubts and learning becomes a lot more interesting and engaging for all of you. Also, you will discover more techniques or methods of learning that can simplify understanding concepts. Another advantage of group studies is students’ personal development, which will help them throughout their life.

7) Solve previous years' question papers with a stopwatch.

After you are more or less down with preparation, go and ask your expert subject teachers or seniors for previous years’ question papers and sample papers. You can also get them at stationery shops for respective subjects. Then, create an exam-like environment around you, sit with a stopwatch, and confine yourself to finishing the papers in the number of hours you will get to write the board exam. This will help you get accustomed to the exam environment, understand the paper style, different sections, and the format of questions, and finish them in the allotted time.
