The exams that are conducted by the schools act as a stepping stone for our professional career. Class 11th examination is just about to start in a few days, and students are confused as to how to start preparing for the exam and score good marks in it. We have some useful tips to prepare for Class 11 CBSE exams which can help you to improve your performance and result.

Plan Accordingly

Now you start focusing on topics in which you have a strong hold, practice as many exam based questions as possible. When you are finished with these concepts then start focusing on the chapters in which you are week. Firstly start making notes on these topics, then start practicing questions from previous year papers. Keep updating the chapters in the checklist so that you are aware of your daily or weekly progress.

Make Notes

Regular studies and completing your CBSE Class 11 Maths Syllabus on time wins you half the game. Complete your projects, assignments and practicals on the day they are assigned and get them out of your way. Start with easier chapters and gradually proceed to topics that you find more difficult. With basics brushed up, you will find that even the most difficult topics will melt down to simpler easier concepts.
