But one must learn to put the negative feelings aside and concentrate on your learning goals. So here I give you certain tips or say some guidelines that would help you to be well organized and prepare well for your exams.
How to prepare for the board exams?
How can I prepare myself a few months before the board exam?
There are a few things which you must be doing a few months before your exams. Some just a day prior to your exam and some during your exam. Let’s take a look at them one by one.
1. Start Revision
Now that there are only a few months left, you all must start your revision work. Try to do it chapter-wise for each subject and try not to study just one subject the whole day – instead, make a combination of subjects to make the learning process more interesting. Also while studying – highlight points, mark important questions, keep a habit of making flowcharts, note down all the formulas on one page, this would serve as your handwritten notes for last-minute revision. If you’re already done doing all these things, keep a habit of reading chapters from your textbook.
2. Solve previous year question papers
Solving previous year’s question papers will help you a lot. Try to a lot the specified times and solve the paper as if you are appearing for it during exams.
3. Become your own teacher
I would also suggest you to check your own paper, become your own teacher so that you can rank yourself. You would even know your weakness and strength and could avoid any silly mistake if you are making one. If you find any particular topic difficult, you may discuss it with your friends as they may have a good understanding of the topic and might help you as well. You may even share your knowledge as teaching is the best way of learning.
4. Be healthy physically and mentally
Eat healthily, avoid outside food and drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. Please don’t indulge in any activities that would cause any injury to you. Just take care of yourself. Being healthy is not just about your physical help.
Find time for yourself, take 15 minutes for yourself, close your eyes, seat calm and quiet. Meditate to destress yourself.
Note: My dear friends, it’s not necessary that you follow this the very same way. You may stick with your own way of studying, just consider it as a small guideline.
