How to Score Full Marks in Class 9 Term 1 Science?

A comprehensive guide on the CBSE Class 9 Term 1 Science syllabus & exam pattern

What is science to you? A bunch of equations you find difficult to fathom? A set of numerical that gives you a hard time? A reaction between two chemicals that keep you awake at night? Science is much deeper and meaningful than you can imagine. It is mesmerizing, even if you find it hard to believe. To some of you, science may sound like passion. If you find joy in losing yourself in the intricate labyrinth of science, hang in there. You may make it big as a scientist later or an astrophysicist. Who knows?

Don’t have a scientific bent of mind? That’s okay too. But as long as you are in Class 9, you don’t have much of a choice. With the unit test and Term 1 exams fast approaching, it’s time to buckle up and conquer the basics of science. You can do this easily with effort and dedication, and expert help from TopperLearning SMEs. To learn the concepts of science in fun and innovative ways, check out our video lessons for CBSE Class 9.

Preparation Tips for Class 9 CBSE Term 1 -Science


Start preparing early – And make sure you have enough time in hand. Avoid taking up any new concept just before the exams, instead practice and revise topics that you already know.

Practice methodically – Write down the formulae with the full meaning of the variables and the SI and CGS units of each of them. This will help to prevent any silly mistake while solving a numerical. Use different colour pens for better retention.

Revise concepts sequentially – Apply your common sense to understand the sequential link between concepts and proceed step by step. For example, only after understanding the concepts of Motion, will you be able to understand the Laws of Motion and how they operate. If you go about you’re the chapters in a haywire manner it will lead to rote learning. You won’t retain what you learn for too long.
