I am proud to have achieved the position of class 10 topper, and I would like to share some tips that I believe will be helpful in preparing for your own board exams. With the hope of providing guidance to my fellow students, I have compiled a list of useful tips that I personally found effective during my preparation for the class 10 board exams. These tips have helped me achieve my academic goals, and I hope they will assist you in achieving yours as well.
Chill! It is only exams
First of all my advice is that each and every one of future tenthies should not fear the finals or feel a chill run up their spine whenever they encounter the word “boards”. Just chill out. Its just another examination. There is nothing special about it.
Which books to study? Is NCERT enough?
To prepare oneself I would recommend that one should absolutely thoroughly study NCERT by heart and then move on to reference books such as RD Sharma for maths, Lakhmir Singh for chemistry, HC Verma for physics and Together With for SST.
I am thankful to my parents and teachers for their support
I received immense support from my parents and family. At home my mother taught me bio,maths,english and sst while my father helped me with physics and chemistry. My teachers at school were extremely helpful and ever ready to share their wealth of knowledge.
All work and no play is not good
Aside from studies one should also keep oneself engaged in co curricular activities. I personally play the piano as a hobby and love reading thrilling suspenseful novels. But you can always play sports, watch tv (I personally watched a lot of it),go out with friends and watch movies.
Other competitive exams help you analyse yourself
For future competitive exams one can start preparing from now. One should take part in olympiads, ntse, and other talent search examinations. Experiencing them can prepare one mentally for the harsh and ruthless competition one faces outside the comfort of ones school.
Pressure? Avoid it!
Do not at any point feel pressurized. Don’t think of the outcome, the result of your exams in this case. Just put in your best efforts and hard work. Remember the fruits reaped of your hard work will benefit you. Always study for yourself, not for your parents or teachers and try to enjoy it as much as possible.
Trust your instincts. If you believe you need more time to study maths, do so. Time management is absolutely essential and is a prime key to success.
I wish you all Best of Luck! for your future endeavors!
