1. Understand your syllabus and pattern
Before attempting any paper, be it your boards or any competitive exams you should be aware of the syllabus and pattern. Getting acquainted with the pattern and syllabus enables you to hold your ground with a firm grip.
When you know the pattern you will know what, when and how much to study. Knowing the syllabus will help you identify high scoring topics and can even help you eliminate topics that are not repeated.
2. Plan your timetable
Everyone knows that consistency is the key to achieving big. But how many of you remain consistent? One of the major reasons students don’t remain consistent is because they don’t tend to follow a timetable.
Time table allows you to do everything in moderation. Effectively managing your time is an integral part of preparing for boards.
When you effectively manage your time you have time for everything and its advantage is that you don’t have to compromise on your favourite things.
Try making time table in a way that you have allocated enough time to study while having smaller breaks for some recreational activities.
You can always be creative while making time table like creating small milestones that will motivate you to work even harder and better when you achieve it, making to-do lists so you don’t miss out on important things.
3. Solve mock test papers, analyze, revise and make notes
It’s not a hidden fact that as much as you practice mock test papers you will be mastering your boards. Mock test is like simulated exam condition and when you do it underclock ticking then you get the exposure of real exam.
In this way, you will be able to check up on the areas that are your strengths and where you need to work. You will also be able to improve your speed by practising multiple mocks.
Apart from mock test papers, it is advised to revise your whole syllabus at least twice before the commencement of the examination.
While revising try making notes in between that will save your time when you have to revise afterwards.
4. Getting your concepts clear and practicing rigorously
Studying is fun and engaging when you have conceptual clarity. Physics seems to be quite hard for a biology student. So they tend to cram the formulas and solutions rather than attempting to clear their basic concepts.
So when you have conceptual clarity you can solve any questions and you don’t have to memorize them. Once you have those concepts clear, practice them on paper.
Practice makes a man perfect. Writing what you learn on paper will help you memorize it properly. Photographic memory tends to be more efficient than learning.
5. Take breaks, relax, meditate and eat proper meals
Students find themselves buried under the mountain of the syllabus. Stress is a foe of focus. If you feel stressed take a break.
A cluttered brain doesn’t take any more information, so you have to clear your mind before processing anything new. To clear your head you can always meditate.
Sometimes taking proper sleep and eating fresh fruits and green vegetables aids in relaxing.

1. Solve mock papers.
2. Know your syllabus.
3. Make a timetable.
4. Don’t cram, understand your topics.
