Keep your mind calm and free

Days before CBSE board exams, many students tend to become stressed and overburdened due to the pressure of doing well. But they need to understand that this is just another exam. They should watch motivational videos and try to be calm. Meditation is one of the best sources of keeping oneself calm and free of any pressure.

Make notes and revise daily

A few days before board exams, you just can’t go back to your textbooks. By now, you should be having handy notes helpful enough to let you revise everything that you learnt in your class. Revise concepts by means of those notes on a daily basis.

Master time management skills

Time management is one of those valuable skills that will be fruitful to you even when you are out of your academics; when you enter corporate or your own firm. You should learn to allocate time for specific topics or questions. This will help you finish your exams in a stipulated manner.

Seek help

As we know, no one is perfect. We can’t do everything on our own. Students have their strongholds as well as weak areas. To work on your weak points, never hesitate in taking help of your elders or even peers. Your friends may be good at a particular subject or topic wherein you won’t be.

Get proper rest

This is one of the most critical points for students going to appear in board exams. The continuous and rigorous study may lead to fatigue. And you may start feeling nervous and wretched. You need to take proper rest after a certain period, let’s say a break of 10 minutes after 1 hour of continuous study. The break will rejuvenate your mind and give the boost needed.

Speed and agility

It is to be noted that even if you know the answer to all the questions, you need to have that speed required to attempt all the questions. When you are done attempting all the questions, you need to have some time to revise your answers and look for mistakes, if any.

Keep calm on the day of exam

This is the most important point for all the board exam students. After months of preparation and battling tough questions, this is the time to show your prowess to yourself. To this end, it is vital that you keep your mind free of any kind of stress. Take fresh fruits and eat healthy food. Drink plenty of water. You can take chocolates to calm down your stress.
