Gather Your Weapons
You still have got a lot of time.
All you need is to chuck out pre-examination stress and organized resources. A lot of your time gets wasted looking for the things you need to study. So organize each and everything –
- NCERT textbooks
- Previous 10 years question bank
Another most important thing you’ll need: an organized study space. And here is an interesting video on how to get an organized study space:
Collect them all and unclutter accordingly.
A Timetable for Each Day
Before starting over. You need a timetable. Yes, you do. It doesn’t work like you start to read anything at any hour, that’d leave you all bewildered and panicked (again).
You need to assign specific study hours to each subject. Some topics require less time while others more. And not every topic holds the same significance.
You need to be wise about the time you spend on each topic. Don’t spend much time on a topic that’s not significant from an examination perspective.
Now I am sure that you already have made timetables, but they don’t turn out to be effective. That’s because you haven’t made the timetables right. So how to make a study schedule that’s effective? Simple, watch this video:
A DEFINITE Everyday Goal
Setting small goals and completing them gives you a sense of achievement and drives you to decipher the next set step. And make you learn with more conviction.
- Divide the subjects you want to do per day – Go for two subjects in a day, probably one of your interest and the other can be a language ( as mostly there are 5/6 subjects ).
Classify – Simple, Moderate and Strenuous, and Get Started
First of all, revise the topics that you have already studied well. Then head to the ones needing a little more attention. And eventually, the ones that need the most efforts.
Eat and Sleep Properly
The anxiety levels are sought to increase. To not to get affected, you should follow your diet chart strictly. Any compromise with the sleep pattern may leave you in a situation of distress, and I am sure that you do not want to get ill at this moment.
A proper sleep of 8 hours is required, DO NOT COMPROMISE with it, in any case.
Do not think that sleeping so much would waste your time. Instead, it will rejuvenate you to make the most out of a day.
Sleep and Wake with NCERT
The first and the last thing you should go through while preparing for boards is NCERT; it has the answers to all the problems.
NCERT covers each and everything you need to study for the exam. Don’t get confused with multiple books options. Just trust NCERT, and it will never let you down.
Go through all the examples, did you know facts and unsolved questions. And you are all set for the paper.
Don’t Forget To Revise
If you follow the pattern of studying two subjects a day, for all these 15 days, you get to study a subject for 5-6 times. If spent sincerely, this much time is enough to score well in your boards. Much better than wasting all your time in panicking and figuring out what to do.
Here are some general instructions to help you better:
- Take a small break in every 40 minutes or an hour. Stretch lightly during the breaks.
- Do not study at least 30 minutes before going to bed, wash your face and feet, settle down, close your eyes, relax your mind.
- Avoid caffeine, have lemon water or green tea.
- Do not refrain yourself from entertainment – Play music, sing, dance, meditate.
Boards are around the corner. But I want you to stop panicking. Because I know that with all these tips on how to prepare for board exams in 15 days, you are going to do great.
Study less but study effectively.
Just gear up, follow the tips and make the most out of these 15 days.
