Distribute equal time amongst all the subjects.
Strictly adhere and follow the prescribed NCERT books. You will surely get a clear understanding of the course contents and also the type of questions.
Avoid the notion of giving importance to the practical subjects (Physics, Chemistry and Math) only; treat Hindi, English, and Computer Science with the same attitude.
Don’t overdose yourself with practice papers, test papers, and mock test series. Try out with 2-3 of any of the variant. They are just to give you knowledge about the pattern and language of the questions.
Study the previous year question papers. Sketch out the trend of questions that have been asked and their mode of occurrence.
Write out effective and smart notes. With effective I mean penning down the important facts about a particular topic using the diagrammatic approach, like using flowcharts, cause and effect diagrams etc. This will help you out for quick revisions before the exams.
Stick to your own study schedule and don’t get distracted by your friends’ preparations technique. Everybody adopts a different learning pattern.
Avoid studying for long hours. Take regular breaks. Try including a light and healthier snack in between studies at break. This will aid better concentration in comparison to studying empty stomach.
As food is for our body, meditation is for mind and soul. Follow a simple meditation exercise to enlighten your minds. Follow this out it really works.
For at least 15 minutes be with nature. Take a walk to your nearby park or relax out at your home’s balcony or porch. Breathe in and out the early morning fresh air.
