Cracking the boards

With exams round the corner, HT brings students tips to prepare for Class 10 and 12 examinations. While toppers share their approach to crack the exams, counsellors, principals and subject experts offer advice on how to deal with stress and perform better.

Topper’s take
Aaditya Sharma

Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sr Sec School, CGPA 10 in Class 10

Set target: Students should set their targets on daily basis and achieve them to perform better.

Physical activities: Apart from studying, devote at least two hours to outdoor activities or sports.

Move ahead: Leave a math question if you are stuck. Try that next morning with fresh mind.

Expert advice

Tejinder Sondhi

Science teacher, Sacred Heart School, Sector 26, Chandigarh

Don’t waste time: Don’t wait for the last minute. Address your areas of weakness and do not accumulate a backlog.

Discuss problems: Discuss problems with teachers if you come across any during revision.
Practise: Keep practicing as this is the key to both comprehending a concept and memorising a formula.

How I am preparing

I have made a very balanced timetable in which each subject has been given appropriate time. I am focussing more on NCERT books but for Physics, I am going through extra books.
