Smart and Simple Study Strategies to Conquer the CBSE Class 12 Exam

Class 12 Board exams are always a turning point in every student’s life. The percentage garnered in this exam is the deciding factor for future course of action. The scores decide students’ career path as well as their potential and skills. While students do decide on the academic stream they wish to pursue, they have to appear for entrance exams, which are highly competitive and challenging. Hence, acquiring a high percentage and scores is crucial at this stage. This is possible when students are well-prepared for their CBSE Boards. Here, we cite some invaluable CBSE Class 12 preparation tips for that. So, read on if you are a Class 12 student and are prepping up for your Boards.

Know the syllabus and the exam pattern

First off, get well-acquainted with the syllabus provided by the Board and the exam pattern. Be aware of the topics covered, the topics that carry more weightage, important concepts, marking scheme, and such things. Get familiar with the exam pattern, the total number of questions, and the chapter-wise weightage of marks, as well. Do keep in mind, this applies to all the subjects.

Create a study plan

CBSE Class 12 preparation - Create a study planNow that you are well-versed with the syllabus, create a robust study plan, which is imperative to your exam prep. Break down the syllabus into small chunks, which will make it easy for you to allocate enough time to every topic and subject. Do keep this schedule flexible, as then you can devote more time to topics you find difficult and complex. Be consistent and sincere about following this schedule.

Be clear about concepts and learn formulae

A very crucial aspect of CBSE Class 12 preparation is getting absolute clarity on concepts. Be very clear about these and seek help from your tutors if in doubt about any. Focus on understating concepts so it becomes easy to apply them to problems. Also, learn all the formulae and revise them regularly to solidify retention and recall of what you’ve learnt.

Make your own notes

While studying, create your own concise notes, as these will help you immensely while revising. Jotting down stuff in your own writing helps you remember it for longer and recall it better. So, highlight key points of a topic, summarise sub-topics, and write in your own language to understand the topic better. Doing this is an important aspect of CBSE exam preparation.

Refer to the right books

While there are many books available out there for reference, it is best to stick to the main syllabus book while studying. This book covers the syllabus in its entirety and in-depth. Hence, study from these books only. Do remember that the Board exam question paper is always set based on the syllabus of the main book only. Hence, it’s best to go by these and not look at other study material.

Work on time management
