#Tip 1 – Stick to the reduced syllabus
For the academic session 2020-2021, CBSE has decided to reduce class 10th syllabus up to 305 to reduce the mental pressure on the students. Hence, don’t overdo it and adhere to the reduced syllabus. You can also study from Oswall books which contain CBSE question papers, revision notes, etc as per the reduced syllabus.
#Tip 2 – Solve CBSE Sample Papers
CBSE has released the sample papers for class 10th and 12th online at its official website. Practising from CBSE 10th sample papers will further help you to understand the exam pattern and marking scheme. However, students should solve sample papers once they have completed the exam syllabus and are clear with the basic concepts.
#Tip 3 – Make notes for revision
It is best advised to the students that while studying you can prepare notes of important points, formulas, diagrams, etc. This will not help you in understanding the concept better but will also come handy at the time of revision.
#Tip 4 – Don’t be afraid to get your doubts cleared
Since this academic year has been all online, many students may feel a bit shy about asking their doubts in a virtual class. You can ask your friends for help, make a group and study together. If not in front of all the class, you mask your teachers about your doubts separately but it is important that you should get your doubts cleared up right away. Piling up the mountain of doubts will be a huge road block for you achieving good marks in the exams.
