Important Preparation Tips for CBSE Exam 

1. Maintain your schedule

Follow the age-old saying, “early to bed, early to rise.” Always take your breakfast before you begin your studies. It’s not at all recommended to stay awake till late at night. Try and avoid worrying about the results and exams. Allocate a couple of hours every day just for relaxation and don’t think about your exams during that time. Read, exercise, play and do anything you are interested in to divert your mind off of exams. Eat only healthy food during your study time. Avoid junk and fast food as much as possible.

2. Don’t overwork yourself

Make it a point to work with your brain slowly, gradually, and systematically. Avoid burdening yourself with too many thoughts. Have clarity but do not pressurize yourself to rush into covering topics. Steadily increase your level of difficulty to ensure that your interest is maintained while studying. You should not feel bored or find the topics too difficult, or you will lose interest. On a daily basis, select 2 or at the most 3 subjects to choose one or two topics from them and try to go into their depths rather than skimming over 10 topics.

3. Plan Well

It is important to plan out your day systematically. It is not advisable to have only the easy subjects and topics one day. Similarly, try not to overwork yourself with only the topics that are difficult. To get the best of your results, begin with comparatively easier subjects for an hour or so, and then continue with the difficult ones after you are warmed up. Organize your schedule with a mix and match of hard and easy subjects. This will help you concentrate on difficult topics while building your confidence with the easy ones. 

Always ensure that you don’t stress yourself too much. Taking a power nap of 30 minutes after you return from school is a good practice that will help you to freshen up your mind and body. Make it a point to include proper breaks of at least 10 to 15 minutes between every study session of 2 hours. This will allow your brain adequate time to rest and refresh itself. 

4. Solve Question Papers

Solve at least one sample question paper from the official website of CBSE every day in a timed environment exactly like at an examination hall. Once you are done solving the paper, you have to self evaluate according to the marking scheme provided by CBSE. If you can solve the entire question paper within 2:30 hours in a practice session, you can be absolutely sure that you will be able to ace the final board examination comfortably. You have to practice previous year’s question papers to get a hands-on idea of the exam and the kinds and patterns of questions usually asked. This will give you enough confidence and writing practice for you to score well in your boards.

5. Relax Adequately

Exam season does not mean that you have to study day in and day out. Do not leave out the recreational and extra-curricular activities that will give you respite from the daily grind of studying. Make sure you include exercises in your schedule to keep yourself healthy. Yoga and meditation are proven to improve focus. Meditation helps to strengthen your mind, brings it in control and allows it to effectively guide the body for executing all its works. It’s a good practice to take an early morning walk before beginning to study or try meditating for 15 minutes.
