The sheer agony we feel when we realize that our exams are about to begin and maybe we’re unprepared for what we’ll be facing in the examination hall is capable enough to give us panic attacks and episodes of self-realization towards all the time that we had wasted for the whole year, and on the top of it if it’s the board exams are what we’re discussing about, no student/parent is unaware of the fact that we always tend to associate immense pressure with it, and may even surpass levels of discipline, hard-work and determination just to be able to ace the exams/or being able to see your child ace the exams. But there’s always one single question associated with it and that is “What are the best tips to study for your board exams?” if you’ll search this on you-tube: “Master-class to ace your board exams” you might come across tons of videos of people telling you and giving you tips on how to ace your exams, but let me break the ice for you, it’s not a rocket science and the process may vary person to person but there exists number of generalized tips and tricks implementing which, your child will be able to make an improvement in his/her overall academic career. These tips can be termed as “The best set of tips for your board exams/to ace your board exams” but let’s just avoid going into the terminology and delve deep into it.

Tip 1. Make notes: Making notes on a daily basis while studying or understanding a concept can reduce 50% of your stress by the time your exams arrive. Making detailed running notes, highlighting important topics and practicing those important topics afterwards on a daily basis will lead to a massive spike in the child’s overall academic development.

Tip 2. The act of rewarding yourself: This is something that a lot of people are unaware about. Imagine this, you have been having a lot of assignments lately, but instead of doing them on a regular basis what you’re doing is that, you’re spending a lot of time procrastinating, and are not actually doing anything to complete your assignments on time. If that ever is the case, what you must be doing is that you should decide upon one thing as a reward which you’ll be bestowing yourself with, after the completion of that designated task. For example, you get on terms with yourself that once you have completed your assignment then and only then you’ll get to use your mobile phone or get to go outside. This way of rewarding your own self after a task is completed will keep you motivated and determined to complete your tasks.

Tip 3. Organize your study area/work-space: Having an untidy and haphazard study area/work-space leads to unclear perspectives and motives. Your work area is a place where you spend most of your time, working/studying and if you’re unable to maintain the sanity of that place, then it may lead to adverse effects in your academics. So organizing your work-space is a must thing one should do in order to ace your board exams.

Tip 4. Use diagrams and flowcharts: Using flowcharts and diagram will help you remember important topic with much ease. Using flowcharts and pasting them on your wall or on a cupboard at your house will eventually help you revise difficult head points/topic whenever you’d like to revise them before your exams.

Tip 5. To remember topics extensively, try explaining them to others: The best way to remember topics is to explain them to others. This may seem mundane to us at first but our subconscious mind works in a completely different way than we anticipate it to, and sometimes things we weren’t able to remember at first are easily remembered by us when we explain those things to others.

Tip 6. Take time to time breaks out of your study schedule:  Knowing, when to take breaks and when not to, is also an art. Ideally one should take a break after studying for at least an hour and a half. Though, it varies person by person usually, one should have a 20 mins break after working/studying constantly for more than 1.5 hours. Dividing your breaks accordingly will help you remain focused over your tasks.

Tip 7. Avoid eating junk food and start adapting a healthy diet:  Eating habits also form an integral part of your memory power and overall mood. Eating junk foods might create an adverse effect over your body and you may get sick during your exams so it’s advisable to avoid eating junk foods at the time of your exams/ even before your exams.

Tip 8. Avoid studying at night:  Sleep is one of the most important factors responsible for your overall academic success and memory power, if you’re not getting sleep for at least 8-9 hours before your exams then probably you’re jeopardizing your overall grades. Waking up early in the morning is better than staying up late at night. Also, one should also avoid using digital gadgets before going to sleep.

Tip 9. Stick to your text-book: If you are aiming at achieving good grades in your board exams then you must stick to your text book rather than referring other reference books and materials available everywhere. One should also have a look at previous year’s papers before appearing for your board exams.

Thus, these were in all some of the best tips one could ever get to ace his/her board exams.
