Tips to Score Good Marks in CBSE Class 10 Exam
The Central Board of Secondary Education, popularly known as CBSE, conducts the CBSE Class 10 board exam for all the CBSE schools across India. The CBSE Class 10 syllabus is vast, so students must pay attention from the beginning of the academic session. They should allocate time to each subject and design a proper study plan. CBSE Class 10 exams are considered a strong foundation for pursuing higher studies for students. It acts as a turning point in a student’s life. Students can opt for their interest stream if they excel in their Class 10 exam. To score good marks in their exam, students should be well-prepared with a proper study plan.
The CBSE Board declares the Class 10 examination results in Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA): The average of Grade Points obtained in all the subjects, excluding the sixth additional subject, as per the exam scheme. So, to convert CBSE CGPA to percentage, students need to multiply it by 9.5.
We have divided the exam preparation into three broad categories, which are:
- Exam preparation during the initial days of the session
- Preparation in the middle of the academic session
- Preparation tips at the end of the academic session
1. Preparation During the Initial Days of the Session
The initial days of the class are stress-free for the students, where they do not have any burden or pressure. They are full of energy at this time, so they should utilise it in the right way. Students are advised to attend daily classes and concentrate on the topics taught in the classroom. They must keep their ears open to grasp the teacher’s concepts. Assigning 2-3 hours daily to self-study during the initial days will be enough for the students. After school hours, they must go through the topics and solve the exercise problems in advance. Students must divide their time equally among all the subjects.
2. Preparation in the Middle of the Academic Session
At this stage, students need to understand the course of preparation. By this time, they must have completed half of the syllabus. So, it is easy for them to identify which subjects suit them and which need more of their attention. They need to maintain a balance between the two. Apart from classroom studies, students have to focus on practising more questions. For complete theory subjects such as English, history, geography and Hindi, studying from a single book will be enough. For a subject like physics, students need to solve different types of numerical and theoretical problems. In such a scenario, students need to solve the question from the reference books, CBSE sample papers for class10 and last years’ papers.
3. Preparation Tips at the End of the Academic Session
By this time, students have finished with the entire syllabus, and they have hardly 1 or 2 months for the board exam. At this stage, they should start with revising all the subjects. Suppose a student is weak in chemistry, then they should analyse the chemistry topics in which they are not up to the mark and practice the questions from the NCERT book; if they are unable to solve problems, then it’s best to refer to the NCERT solutions. Similarly, students can follow the NCERT book for other subjects to practice different questions.
Students must devote their time to practising and analysing their preparation level. They must solve the previous years’ question papers and sample papers. This will give them a good idea of the actual exam and the types of questions asked in the paper. While solving these papers, they will find out their weak and strong areas. Accordingly, they can put effort into it and improve their overall performance.
For CBSE Class 10 students, preparing for the exam is full of stress and anxiety. So, they should take the exam seriously and work hard for it. By following the below-mentioned tips, students can understand how they should prepare for their exams effectively.
