Scoring full marks in the Board examination is a dream for every student. But many students often find it difficult to secure full marks in subjects like Maths and Science, therefore, we have provided some useful study tips that you can follow while preparing for these subjects:

  1. Know Your Syllabus: One common mistake that many students make is not having a clear knowledge of the entire syllabus. Class 10 and 12 Board exams are considered to be the important exams in every student’s life and hence, it is equally important to be aware of all the chapters, important topics and weightage before starting with your preparation.

  2. Plan Your Time-table: Preparing for your exams will only be fruitful if you know to manage your time properly. It is very important for the students to maintain a strict time schedule for all the subjects and divide all the topics accordingly. They must give more time and attention to the topics which they find difficult. It is also important that you give equal attention to all the subjects and leave no chapter for the last-minute preparation.

  3. Know the Formulas: For Maths and Science subjects, it is very important that we make a note of all the important formulas that are used in the chapters during the preparation. Being well aware of all the formulas will help us solve the questions accurately and score full marks. Students can go through some important Class 10 Maths formulas presented on Vedantu’s website and revise them regularly to be clearer with the concepts. They can similarly find out the important formulas for Class 12 Maths on our website. Make sure to solve as many questions as possible that are based on these formulas.

  4. Check Your Speed and Accuracy: One of the most important aspects of preparation is to improve your problem-solving speed and accuracy. Therefore, it is essential to solve last year’s question papers and you are advised to solve all the questions in the stipulated time. You can also take up subject-wise question papers for Class 12 Physics, Chemistry and Maths to know your expertise. Make a note of your time after each attempt and also work on the area in which there have been multiple mistakes.

  5. Give Importance to NCERT Solutions: We often run behind to solve various reference textbooks and sample papers but it is equally important that we go through the NCERT Textbooks regularly. We must be well aware of all the basic concepts that are mentioned in the NCERT Solutions for Class 10 and 12. Along with the previous year’s papers, students should also practice solving all the NCERT Textbook Solutions for Class 12 and Class 10 subjects. 


Study Tips for Highest Scoring Subjects in Class 10 Term 2 Exam

If we consider the Class 10 Term 2 examination, then the subjects like Mathematics and Science are considered to be high scoring subjects in term 2. Given below are the important preparation tips to score full marks in these subjects:

  • Refer to Sample Papers: Subjects like Maths and Science often require point-to-point answers and if answered correctly, the students can easily get a full mark for each question. But since these subjects include many formulas and equations, students should make sure to solve Class 10 Sample Papers regularly to be familiar with the exam pattern. 

  • Take Keynotes: It is not always possible to revise the entire syllabus multiple times during our last-minute preparation. That’s when the revision notes come to the rescue. Therefore, we need to take subject-wise class 10 revision notes including all the necessary formulas and equations to help us brush up on concepts at the last minute.

  • Refer to Examples: Sometimes referring to an example can help us understand a particular topic in a simplified way. The same goes for keysolving multiple exemplar solutions before proceeding with the textbook solutions or even previous year papers. It will help us to gain an understanding of all the important facts and formulas.


Along with these, students can take up chapter-wise important questions for class 10 that are present on our website and solve them regularly.
