Tip #1 Time table

Also remember not to rigid your schedule, otherwise your morale will lower down if you are not able to complete your targets.

Tip #2 Comfortable Atmosphere

Choose that  place to study where you feel comfortable and where there is proper light and ventilation. Readiness to learn and study comes from the perfect ambience. This would also help to reduce your stress levels and you would be able to focus more.

Tip #3 Importance of notes

Allocate proper time to all the subjects and do not forget to jot down the important formulas, equations, theorems, graphs and diagrams. Writing benefits more than oral memorization. 

Note-making would help you to revise instantly before the examination and you would not require intensive reading at that time.

Tip #4 Which books to follow

Are you confused as to which  books you should read while preparing for your 9th and 11th? Well, the answer is very simple. 

You all need to build concepts and for that NCERT resource materials are the best. For practise purposes you can take help of some guide books but remember NCERT books are the saviours.

Tip #5 Time management

And  here comes the most important tip for all of you, how to save time and select those questions which can be finished earlier.

Well, Eleve you need to do a lot of practice before the examinations using a timer. You can also opt for a self-practising test and previous question papers would give you an idea on how to manage time.  

Tip #6 Revision is the key

Revise your notes  along with the important formulas and theorems and make sure that you have made your notes very simple and easy to avoid any confusion.

Tip #7 Practice makes you perfect

Tip #8 Never miss any topic

Do not make the mistake of skipping any topic whether it is of less marks or high marks. Study according to the weightage given in your syllabus. 

Tip #9 Avoid Pressure cooker situation

Students often take pressure, parents and coaching institutions also put  pressure on them as they are about to appear for the boards in the succeeding year.

Tip #10 Keep calm, stay fit

All work, no play makes Jack a dull boy. Students should engage themselves in sports and other hobbies of interest also so that  they can improve their skills and not feel bored or lethargic.
