Pick Your Work Hours
Like school, stick to an 8-hour study schedule. Not everyone has the same body clock. Base your schedule around yours. If you are comfortable waking up early, start your day at 8 AM. If not, start at 10 AM. Try not to delay further. There is an intrinsic connection between daylight and productivity. It is ingrained in our biology. Try to utilize this. Stick to a 5+1+1 plan, where 5 days a week you study and use 1 day to take mock tests and revise. Keep a day every week to catch up on anything you may have missed or simply relax.
Literature: Weekly Goals
Make weekly goals for literature subjects. Most of you will have 2 language subjects you need to study. Create weekly goals covering portions of the syllabus and set daily writing assignments for each subject on alternating days. Do not spend more than 2 hours on it each day.
Daily writing practice is the key to scoring 90+ in literature.
Mathematics And Science: Daily Goals
Unline literature, mathematics, and science have shorter chapters and require daily practice. Set aside 2 hours each for Mathematics and any one of the Science subjects each day. Use them to read as well as practice exercise questions.
Daily practice is the key to scoring 95+ in STEM subjects.
Social Studies: One Subject At A Time
Pick one social studies subject at a time and take a week or 2 to cover it completely. Solve at least 1 exercise a day and stick to keeping it under 1 hour. For subjects like Geography where you need map practice, do not forget to set aside at least 2 hours a week, preferably spread out over 3 to 5 days, for practice. The same goes for subjects like Economics where maths is involved.
Do Not Compromise On Your Rest
7 to 8 hours of sleep is non-negotiable if you are to retain all the subjects you are required to study for your boards. So, once you have a 6 days 8 hours plan in place, make sure you are sleeping 8 hours throughout the day. You can break it out between a 6-hour goodnight’s sleep and a 2-hour nap in between, or just sleep 8 hours each night, but you are doing it. And do not forget to use the spare hours of the day and week to spend some time with friends and family. Or just concentrate on your hobbies. A relaxed mind is best suited to perform at its optimal.
So relax, it is just another examination, and you’ve got this!
