Prelim papers are around the corner. In many schools teachers have decided to hold multiple prelim exams to assess the students. Schools and Tuition Classes are hurrying to complete the syllabus so they can concentrate on assessing students with tests and save enough time to give remedial lectures.
This, of course, is not the time to panic. It is rather time to organize yourself. Find out the subjects you are strong in and the subjects that you need to buckle up. Within some subjects there will be certain topics where you find yourself confused while others you will find easy. Be realistic with such a list and fold up your sleeves to start learning.
Usually experienced teachers and tutors will help you map out your exam paper and give you the important questions that recur every year. These teachers can also help you find out the questions that have a high chance of appearing in this years’ papers and the ones with the least probability to be included in this year’s board exam.
If you want to score good marks in the SSC Exams do not neglect to study the least probable questions also, but now you have your priorities set and it’s time to start your revision. If you have not started your studies at all, now will be a good time to start. Remember it is your board exam and it is a culmination of the last 12 years in school. Even if you do not aim to be a doctor or engineer please do not let this opportunity pass you by to achieve the highest possible marks. It will save you a lot of regrets later.
First set a timetable for yourself. Remember to study at least for some part of the day every day. Do not procrastinate studying with the excuse that there is still enough time to study.
Take a test
Every time you study and complete a chapter, make sure to take a small test to assess yourself. If you believe that testing yourself is a waste of time then you should know that testing is one of the ways to actually cement your studies and the information you learn in your brain.
