You should have come across the proverb, “Well begun is half done”. Learning your daily lessons is a habit you can cultivate. No matter when your exam is, make up your mind to regularly study what has been taught on a day-to-day basis. This will make it easier for you to prepare for your CBSE Class 6 exams. Manage the time and split it for studying, revising and practising. With a few simple steps, you can shine in your exams. Today, we have gathered ten golden CBSE study tips, exclusively proposed by educational experts at BYJU’S, to help students ace well in the exam.
1. Manage Your Time
Plan the 24 hours that you have. Study for sufficient time. Go through at least three subjects in a day. Apart from studying, set time aside for your relaxation. Do whatever interests you – listen to instrumental music, draw, paint or watch an infotainment channel for not more than an hour.
2. Write What You Learn
Once you have learnt the topic, make it a habit of writing it down. Experts advise that you must try to write it down at a fast pace though it’s sensible if you don’t spoil your handwriting in this practice. This habit of writing a topic will let you analyse how much time you are taking for it. It will ultimately help you to manage your time during the CBSE Class 6 exam.
3. Don’t Ignore Diagrams
When you are tired of reading, sit and draw diagrams. It will help you not only to relax but also to learn the topic. You can figure out what you missed while drawing it and rectify it accordingly.
4. Have Proper Sleep
Eat, sleep, study and relax – That should be your motto rather than breaking your head over textbooks and notes. When you are free and lying on your bed before sleep, recall what topics you learnt for the day. Ask yourself which lesson needs some more attention so that you can plan your study for the next day.
Physical movements like walking, running, jumping, skipping, hiking, and biking metabolise the brain and make it more active. Research states that 20 minutes of walking makes a student’s brain more active than sitting quietly. Meditation improves concentration power and IQ level, helps to focus better, and reduces stress, depression and anxiety. Thus, these habits will keep you physically and physiologically healthy during your preparation and exams.
6. Create Mental Associations
Try to relate what you learnt to different subjects. Making connections is an easy way to remember a lesson. Steve Jobs once said, “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it; they just saw something”.
7. Use Mnemonic Technique
Make short formulae or short sentences for complex data. For example,
Sin = Perpendicular/Hypotenuse
Cos = Base/Hypotenuse
Tan = Perpendicular/Base
Take the first letter of the formula and make a sentence like – “Some People Have Curly Beautiful Hair That’s Pretty Black”.
8. Study in a Group
Studying in a group helps you to gather new insights from your fellow mates. This process enhances your learning experience. In a group study, you share resources, interact with members and discuss ideas with your team. This habit will make your learning interactive.
9. Watch a Documentary on a Topic
To learn a subject in a fast and easy way, try to watch a video of the lesson or topic you are studying. Visuals help to retain things in an easy way. BYJU’s video tutorials are one such platform which helps you to learn in a fun way with animated videos, interactive study with mentors and adaptive learning techniques.
10. Don’t Stay Up All Night Before Exam
Relax the day before your exam. Revise and go through all relevant topics. Focus on important topics. Have a proper dinner and sleep on time. Before going to bed, get your stationeries, admit card for the exam and clothes ready for the next day.
With all these tips, practise more and brush yourself for the big day. Join BYJU’S for complete mentorship guidance along with video lectures and adaptive learning techniques of CBSE.
