Take a look at the subject-wise ICSE Exam Class 10 preparation tips that will help you score well:
Mathematics is all about concepts and formulas which call for as much practice as you can.
You can make a list of the topics you are weak in and give sufficient time to work on them. Go on with the topics you are slightly good at, and then come up with your expertise.
This will help you cover all the topics
Regular practice is essential
Reading newspapers can help a lot by improving your vocabulary, communication, grammar, and many more. Take help of previous year's question papers also and solve them.
Physics could be a mundane subject if you don’t put your interest in it. Try to incorporate experiments in real life to understand the concept better.
