Preparation is important

12th standard Board examinations can be a very difficult phase to go through for the students who are writing the exams. Take a chill pill and don’t stress out, The pressure can be high on the students but they must learn to cope with it and balance it out. Firstly organize your study place. Learning in a messy place will only invite more distractions. Use flow charts and diagrams to help you understand better. Writing notes isn’t always enough to store all the information, make charts to keep it interesting. Practice the old question papers you have, even the model papers. Organize study groups with friends, learning with people might be a better way to understand for most. Sharing knowledge makes you get more of it. Take enough breaks. Spend your free time DOING something you enjoy, to take your mind off studies. Resting is as much important as studying. Snacking while studying can keep you less hungry and more focused. Plan you exam day, keep all essential items like pen, pencil, etc ready and don’t be in a hustle when the exam day arrives.


Have a clear view of your syllabus

The teacher teaches everyone the same thing, grasping all of it is a student’s ability. Not everyone learns in the same speed, take your time until you understand the whole syllabus thoroughly. Take notes in class and use them to get a better idea. Clarify your doubts with the teacher or discuss with friends. Keep a better picture of all topics in your head before you leave for the exam.

Refer Previous Year Question Papers

Collect all sets of question papers you can get of the previous years. Create a question bank and solve all questions. Mark down the questions that you were not able to solve and ask teachers or friends to help you with them. Solve all the problems in the question bank, some questions can be very important ones and are repeated in question papers every year.

Time Management

Time is really an important factor when it comes to exams. While studying distribute your time in such a way that each subject gets enough time of yours. Even while writing the exam, keep in mind to not waste time by trying to memorize the answers of   very precious thing. Managing time is very important especially in the exams; same things apply for board exams. When you start writing the exams, don’t waste your time thinking or remembering answers to the question you don’t know. Simply write write what you know and leave the rest for later. That saves you more time and allows you to write more.

Time Table

Once you get the examination date sheet, prepare a time table of your own. This study time table will allow you to utilize each hour effectively. Allot each subject the amount of time you need to study it. By the end of each subject also take time to do revision.

Keep track of your weak areas

Don’t shy away to ask someone for help in subjects or areas in a subject you need help in. Keep track of your weak areas. Allot more time for those and study those topics very hard. As we are aware that you want to score maximum marks in the board exams and looking for how to prepare for the board exams, study all the relevant topics.


All the best to all students preparing for KSEEB 12th Board Exams 2018.
