CBSE Board Exam 2018: Last Minute Tips & Tricks on How to Ace It

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has finally announced the exam dates. After days of edgy anticipation, the wait is finally over. It was only yesterday that the CBSE board exam dates were declared, much to the relief of the distressed examinees. You would already know by now that the CBSE Class 10 board exam is scheduled to begin on 5th March 2018, right after the Holi holidays. It will end on 4th April 2018 with Painting as the last paper.

The CBSE Class 12 board exam is also scheduled to kick start on 5th March 2018, but it will go on until 12th April 2018. The exam will conclude with Home Science as the last paper.

Now that the datasheet is out, you would expect the ripples to settle down among students. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. Students who were so far being batted around by the guessing game are now baffled. Quite honestly, the exam routine released by CBSE for its Class 10 and 12 exams was a little more of a surprise, and many are overwhelmed to see how closely the papers are planned, with hardly any gaps between some of the major papers. The Twitter-verse has been exploding with woes and worries of many an agonized pupil.

Just what should one do in times like these? Here are some CBSE board exam preparation tips that are designed to help you along the way. But you could most certainly start with not panicking. Remember what they say about how a good beginning is half the battle won?

Read as less as possible – No, we haven’t lost our minds yet, but we are trying very hard to keep yours in good condition. Did you know this fun fact about the human brain: it processes visuals 60,000 times faster than the speed of text? If you solely take to reading and hoarding as much information as you can before every examination, it will only be a matter of time before your brain wears out. Also, the more information you stuff in to your head, the more you will tend to forget. Instead, engrave your lessons in the visual form and let them be etched in your memory. Our video tutorials serve exactly that purpose. Watch and learn and never forget!

Read, revise, repeat – You must have heard the popular story about the hare and tortoise race. Do you know in which jungle they ran that race? Where they started out and at which tree they finished? Well, neither do we! But what we all know is the moral of the story: Slow and steady wins the race! Well, that’s how you figure out answers in life and in the exam hall. It is important to pause and go over the key points. It will slow down your studying process a little bit, but it will definitely enhance your ability to recall. And when you have our Revision Notes to the rescue, there is precious little that you need to worry about.

Run through previous year papers– The last year question paper will not tell you what will come this year, but it will give you a fair idea of what to expect. It is as clear as a reflection of what we may get. It is a smart (read as known) way to prepare for the unknown. Here is what you can expect to find while going through previous year question papers: the question pattern, the marking scheme, recent changes in the pattern (if any) and your strong and weak points. Wondering where to find all of them categorically laid down for you to stumble upon? It’s time you take a closer look at the website. Here, you will find all that you will ever need to give your board exams the best shot!

Practice the art of practising – The more you practise, the closer to perfect you get. Practice also helps you deal with your preliminary fears and helps you boost your confidence. The best way to prepare for your impending CBSE board exam is to practice as hard and as much as you possibly can. Be it sample papers, sure shot questions or multiple choice questions, you will find the entire treasure trove on our site to help you revive the lost art of practising before the real thing!

All said and done, board exams are not as scary as they seem. In fact, with the right tools and techniques, it may turn out to be a cakewalk in the end. Nonetheless, it is a slippery surface that you are gearing to master, and just like our best preparatory methods, all our best wishes are with you!
