Top Tips for Success in Grade 10 and 12 CBSE Exams

Although grades 10 and 12 are two years apart, the preparation tips for examinations for both of these years remain the same. At the end of the day, both of these are exams that follow CBSE courses with the only difference being the grade. So the tips that apply to the examination of grade 10 also apply to the examination of grade 12 as well. With this note aside, let’s get started with our top tips to clear, and even ace these exams.

Know the Syllabus

One of the key tips we have for clearing the 10th and 12th CBSE exams is to know the syllabus. You should know the weightage of topics in terms of marks and prepare accordingly for this. Furthermore, it is also extremely important to have a clear understanding of the key concepts regarding the syllabus. Do not rely on memorization as not everything on the course will appear as it is. The good news about this is that as long as you have an understanding of the core aspect of the syllabus, you can answer most of the questions.

Make a Study Schedule

After knowing the syllabus, you should make a study schedule for the exams. Create a study schedule that lets you cover all the topics at least two weeks before the exams. You can break the syllabus into manageable sections and separate the time as per the weightage. The higher the marks of the topic, the more time you need to develop for each topic. Furthermore, you should also try to match the subjects that complement each other such as maths and science.

Note: Do not forget to include short breaks in your study as you need to refresh your mind as well.

Go Beyond the Textbooks

While learning from the textbooks is indeed important, it is important to know that you need out-knowledge as well. For this, you should go beyond the textbooks. You can use reference books, online materials, educational apps, and video tutorials to reinforce your learning. If you have any doubts you can consult teachers to clear your doubts. You can also discuss with your peers to broaden your understanding as well. This is one of the top tips for success in your journey of conquering the CBSE Class 10 and 12.

Practice hard

Learning and going outside the books is a good way to understand the context of the course. However, without adequate practice, all of that would be for naught. Therefore, you should practice as hard as you can, while having adequate rest in between. Practice indeed makes you perfect. Therefore, you should attempt the previous year’s question along with any other mock tests that you can.

Focus on NCERT textbooks

NCERT textbooks are the primary source for CBSE exams. Therefore, it should not be a surprise that NCERT textbooks are undoubtedly one of the best sources for you to practice. While you should not forget to practice from outside sources, NCERT is highly recommended by most CBSE Schools. Thoroughly understand the concepts explained in these books and practice the exercises diligently.

Stay Healthy and Focused

While practicing and learning hard is undoubtedly important for preparing, it is also important to stay healthy and focused. It would be bad if you studied hard but got sick before the exam. Therefore, you should rest adequately and stay healthy. For this, you should eat a balanced and nutritious diet, get adequate sleep, and give yourself enough workout and exercise to stay healthy. You can also practice concentration techniques to improve focus during your study sessions. You can also choose to practice relaxation techniques such as deep breathing and meditation. This is one of the top tips for success in your journey of conquering the CBSE Class 10 and 12.

Solve Previous Years’ Question Papers

Regardless of whether you are preparing for the grade 10th examination or grade 12th, solving previous years’ questions is one of the best ways to prepare for the exam. Analyzing and attempting previous year’s question papers will help you understand the exam pattern, and types of questions asked, and gain familiarity with the marking system. Needless to say, solving previous years’ question papers is one of the best ways to prepare for the upcoming exam. The more frequent a question in previous years, the more they are likely to appear in the upcoming exam. That said, do not be dependent on previous questions alone and only use them for references.

Write Neatly

Another key aspect of scoring well in the 10th and 12th exams is writing neatly. Writing neatly is an important exam that is often overlooked. Writing neatly can help you convey your ideas properly, and allows your examiner to read your answer more easily. Furthermore, it also reduces the risk of misinterpretation by examiners. It is important to leave sufficient space between words and work with a good quality pen and pencil. You should also underline or highlight key points to make them stand out and ensure that they stand out among and are easy to read. This is one of the top tips for success in your journey of conquering the CBSE Class 10 and 12.

Stay Calm and Focused

During the exam, it is extremely important to stay calm and focused. Students often underestimate the power of calmness during the exam. If you are calm during the exam, you can filter out the questions that you do not know and focus on the questions you can answer. Furthermore, staying calm also aids you in remembering the answers better and writing them properly in the answer. The good news here is that by practicing the right techniques to stay calm, you can enhance your chance of storing well.
