State Board Previous Year Papers: Getting good marks in state board exam or any other state board is always seen as high achievement in the society. This further adds hard work, pressure, luck, and many other factors to get 95+ marks in any subject. Do you have any proper strategy for how you are going to do it? Do have any idea how much time you have to devote to a paper? If you don’t have any idea or strategy for the state board then don’t worry we are here to provide the same. First of all, let's start first with preparation.
Right time to end the syllabus : talking about start board exam, all state boards take exam in different months. But for any exam, always remember you must meet the end of the syllabus prior to the exam 3 months before. If it is 2 months you still are in the safe zone. But throwing the revision of 5 subjects in 1 month is not a cup of tea. Your result might get hampered. Pick all the subjects in a week and never ever leave any subject or nor make strategy like completing a subject in last month and studying only maths and science throughout the year. All the subjects are equally important and when it comes to results, marks in science or marks in English both have equal value. Always give more time to the subject which you feel tough it is all upon your choice. But don’t ignore any subject.
What to do after completing the syllabus?
This is the more important time in your class 10 or 12. You must utilize it with great care. In these months you are advised to devote the first month to clear your concept. Yes, if anywhere you get in trouble or you are stuck with any type of problem in maths or science. Clear all these misconceptions or doubts. Once you are done with crystal clear concepts, you are suggested to solve hard problems. This will surely check how much you have learned throughout the year. Although the percentage of hard questions on paper is few about 10 %. So get these marks in this period of time.
In The next two months you should start revising the syllabus with sample papers and past year papers. You are advised to pick a sample paper first. Especially when it comes to Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Science, or any numerical subject you must solve the 5 practice paper of each as per your subject. If You feel still get stuck in any subject, or you are not matching with requisite time, you need to practice more. in the last month, you should go with your previous year's papers on the board to see where you actually stand after doing all the things that you can in a year.
Now many students think why I should practice sample papers and past year papers. The answer is of great importance. Since if you are a student of class 10 then you might not have given state boards earlier.
- No experience : Earlier you have never given your exam outside the school. Your paper gets set by your teacher but in the state board exam, these things change. Through past year's papers, you come to know about the questions and papers. You get a feel of paper. For this, you must maintain an exam hall environment at home like starting the test at the same time the actual test begins. End the paper at the same time and do not exceed the time. Stop writing by yourself.
- Time management : To ace the competition, you must do it. You should know what type of questions are asked in state board exams and how much they carry marks. For instance, maths has four or five sections carrying 1,2,3,4,5, and 6 marks or it may be objective in many state boards of India. Now here comes management, it is the last year's paper and the time spent at your home which will decide which section you want to start first. How much time you will devote to each and every section. Is allotting time to all the sections saves some extra time for revising the silly mistakes or correcting the same. During practice, many times, if you exceed the time then you should rethink what the wrong thing I am doing and correct it. Start with more marks questions as if in rush it misses out, then more damage goes on your result and distributes proper time accordingly. Also, utilize the 15 mins allotted to read the question paper by solving the objective question.
- Silly mistakes : You come to know about the type of mistakes when you practise these paper. It may be calculational, conceptual, and silly mistakes. Eliminate all these analysing the reason.
- Repeating the pattern : Since you are practising these, chances are questions get repeated. Maybe data changes, but the pattern will remain the same. You will surely get benefitted.
- Clear scene: you will come to know about where you actually stand that is in which question you are weak. This will be covered in the upcoming days and you are left with a lesser weaker section so practice these past year's papers.
- Confidence : When you solve these papers, one thing is very sure you will get is confidence. When you solve the past year's papers, a perception comes that these questions were asked and if I sit in that year I would have scored x marks. This perception of getting x marks is already good then probably on the exam day you will not feel pressure and it will be a calm day. At last all the very best for your state boards.
