How to prepare for Class 10
Preparation Tips for Class 10
You need to know what to study, how to study, how to manage time,how to manage accuracy every question/exam and where to look for references for better exam result. Below is a list of subjectwise pointers for your preparation.
Mathematics
 The best way to learn it is by practicing the problems as much a possible. It is highly recommended that problems be practiced till good confidence is achieved.
 It is important that you spend more time on working out problems you’re weak at and practice it until you satisfied to achieve. Divide time for each unit at your comfort, depending on the total number of marks, and your level of proficiency in it.
 Maths is a practical subject. The best way to learn it is by practicing problems. Make sure you practice problem solving only after you’ve gained good confidence.
 During the exam read the question paper carefully,analyse it well and select the best questions to solve first. Attempt the sections that carry more weightage/marks first.
Biology
 Remember biological terms, practice diagrams and be thorough with different processes.
 Biology course content can be serious and may need multiple readings due to its theoretical nature.
 Using flash cards can be a good memory retention technique.
 This subject is strenuous on the memory as concepts are basically pure information. You can approach Biology by trying to visualize the functions of the described phenomena and trying to correlate them with analogies that you’re familiar with. Give special attention to the names and spellings of the many biological terminologies.
Physics
 Practice derivations at least 8 times and sovle and practice questions on the basis of important derivations.
 Solve at least 8 sample question papers on the basis of the derivations you’ve learned. This will give you an idea about where you’re going wrong and how you could improve.
 Attempt as many conceptual questions on those derivations as you can. This will give you a better understanding of the subject.
 Look for new questions on similar context from previous year’s question papers, sample papers and other model test papers.
 Always time yourself while solving sample papers as it will help you better manage time during the exam.
Chemistry
 Revise the notes you’ve prepared throughout the year if not then refer to the best notes online and resort to videos for easy to understand concept. They will help you memorize the subject in a systematic way.
