Most of the students find the Class 12 Physics subject difficult. This is also due to the vast syllabus and derivations that are there in both parts of the NCERT class 12 Physics book. But, If students plan well and pay full attention from the beginning of the session then they will surely understand the subject and start taking an interest in it. They need an organized and well-structured study plan. Here we have provided the preparation tips for CBSE Class 12 Physics Board Exam that will help the student in making a proper study plan for themselves. But before we go on tips, here are the important points that should be noted while preparing for the physics board exam.
Points to be Remembered While Preparing for Class 12 Physics
- Physics board exam strictly follows the NCERT textbook as it covers the entire class 12 Physics syllabus. So students are recommended to study from the NCERT Class 12 Physics book.
- Students should have important formulas at their fingertips so that they can answer the numerical questions quickly.
- Students must practice each derivation at least trice so that in the exam it won’t take much time.
- The Physics Paper has a mandatory drawing question either of a graph or a device. Students should pay attention to the key features of the diagram to score full marks on this question.
- Students should solve previous year class 12 physics question papers with a time slot of 3 hours. This will prepare their body and mind for the actual examination.
CBSE Class 12 Physics Preparation Tips 2020-2021
Here are a few preparation tips for class 12 Physics that will help students to prepare for the board exam in an effective way.
1) Know the Weightage of Each Unit of Physics Subject
Students must know the weightage of each unit. Based on that they can give more time to those units which carry more marks.
|Unit No.||Name of Unit||Marks|
|Chapter 1: Electric Charges and Fields|
|Chapter 2: Electrostatic Potential and Capacitance|
|Chapter 3: Current Electricity|
|Unit-III||Magnetic Effects of Current and Magnetism||16|
|Chapter 4: Moving Charges and Magnetism|
|Chapter 5: Magnetism and Matter|
|Unit-IV||Electromagnetic Induction and Alternating Currents|
|Chapter 6: Electromagnetic Induction|
|Chapter 7: Alternating Current|
|Chapter 8: Electromagnetic Waves|
|Chapter 9: Ray Optics and Optical Instruments|
|Chapter 10: Wave Optics|
|Unit–VII||Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter||10|
|Chapter 11: Dual Nature of Radiation and Matter|
|Unit–VIII||Atoms and Nuclei|
|Chapter 12: Atoms|
|Chapter 13: Nuclei|
|Chapter 14: Semiconductor Electronics: Materials, Devices and Simple Circuits|
|Chapter 15: Communication Systems|
Along with this students must also be well versed with the exam and CBSE Class 12 Physics Syllabus. This will give them an idea of question paper pattern and help them in keeping a track on how much they have covered in the syllabus.
2) Make Notes for Each Chapter
Students should build a habit of making their own notes while studying. In this manner, they will prepare study notes for each chapter which will help during the exam. Students will able to recall the Physics concepts just by having a glance at it.
3) Topic Wise Strategy: How to Prepare for CBSE Class 12 Physics
Students who are weak in maths and solving the numerical problems must concentrate on the theory chapters such as Communication, Electromagnetic waves and, Dual nature of radiation and matter, Atom, Nuclei and Wave optics. These chapters are completely theoretical and students can score more marks here. So, concentrate on these chapters while preparing. Also, they can focus on Devices such as Galvanometer, Cyclotron, Potentiometer, Transformer, Meter Bridge and AC generator as it constitutes the theory part.
Students who like to solve the numerical problems must focus on the first part of Physics book which consists of chapters like Electric charge and fields, Electrostatic potential and capacitance, Current electricity, Moving charge and magnetism etc. They can also study the chapter depending upon the weightage of marks allocated to it.
4) Design a Proper Study Plan
Students should prepare a daily study schedule in which minimum 1 hour should be allocated to Physics subject. While making the schedule, students should take some time to analyze their previous preparation and find out the topics in which they are weak and strong. This will help them to prioritize their preparation for the board exam. The study schedule should be time-bound and they must follow it. This will create positive pressure in students and help in completing the tasks more effectively.
5) Preparation Strategy Few Months Before the Physics Exam
There are two major things that help students in last-minute preparation of Physics when they are left with 1 or 2 months for the exam. These are Revision and Self-evaluation of preparation level.
Revision is the most important part of physics as the students have to deal with a lot of formulas and derivations in each unit. Once a chapter is completed, it is better to revise that chapter first before moving onto the next chapter. This will help in having a strong foundation in the subject as the topics are interrelated. Students must go through the syllabus once again during revision to check if any topic has not been left.
b) Self Evaluation:
The best way to evaluate the exam preparation level is by solving the different types of Physics class 12 sample papers and question papers. After attempting a single paper, give proper time for self-evaluation. Students must go through the answer sheet and check where they have committed and mistakes and how it can be improved. Work on those areas to improve the overall performance in the class 12 Physic board exam. In case students incurred with any doubt then they should clear it with their teacher.
5) Practice, Practice and Practice
The famous quote “Practice makes a man perfect” is applicable for students as well. The more students will practice, the more will be their chances of scoring high marks. Students should make sure that they have solved the minimum six to seven previous years’ Physics class 12 papers. This will provide a better understanding of the exam pattern as well as the type of questions asked in the Physics paper. During the exam, students must utilize the question paper reading time to decide the sequence of questions that they are going to follow. It is advised that the students first start with the 5 mark questions.
