MBOSE HSSLC 2020 Preparation Tips

To strengthen the MBOSE HSSLC exams 2020 preparation, it is important to study smartly along with hard work. Read these handy tips and tricks given by the exam toppers to learn how to ace MBOSE HSSLC 2020:

  • Finish the syllabus one month before the exams: Students should finish the syllabus at least one months before the commencement of MBOSE HSSLC exams 2020. This gives you enough time to revise and solve previous years question papers, sample papers, and mock tests. Practising from these are helpful in the exam. Make a list and keep a track of which subjects/units are left.
  • Make a study timetable: Planning a study schedule for MBOSE HSSLC exams 2020 is really helpful as it helps you to finish the exam syllabus on time. Students should allot time for different subjects and divide topics according to their weightage in the exam. Don’t forget to add short breaks in the study timetable.
  • Focus on basic concepts: Give more priority to basic concepts before attempting to do advanced topics. If you reach straight into advanced topics, you will get demotivated. Thus, it is advisable to strengthen your basic concepts first and go to the advanced topics for later. Try to solve every problem and example problems in your board prescribed textbook before reaching to the reference books. 
  • Give yourself short, achievable goals: Divide the syllabus into small parts and give yourself small goals that are easily achievable. Once you are habitual, start expanding your goals. This is beneficial as it gives you a sense of fulfillment and confidence.
  • Take breaks: It is important to take breaks during your studies. Exam stress can be detrimental to your preparation and it only leads to unnecessary anxiety. Try to follow some hobbies or exercise, take walks and eat healthily.
