For many CBSE Class X students, mathematics can be a nightmare. While math is a little tricky, it is not difficult.
Math is a scoring subject and all it requires is a smart approach, thorough understanding of concepts, and regular practice. One does not need to be extraordinary to score high.
Here are 5 tips to get 90%+ in CBSE Class X Math Examination.
Understand the syllabus; prepare a proper schedule
Students should have a clear understanding about the math syllabus, marking scheme, and weightage distribution to decide how much time they should dedicate to each topic.
To avoid confusion, students should focus on prescribed NCERT books and understand the core concepts before going through advanced reference books.
Prepare a schedule and set daily, weekly or monthly targets to cover and revise all the topics.
Practice and revision are key to succeeding in math
To get above 90%, it is essential for students to practice and revise all the problems and concepts they learn regularly. The more they practice and revise, the better.
While solving problems, they should read the question a few times, understand it clearly, and then try to solve it themselves. This helps them understand how to apply the concepts, theories, and formulae they learn.
Maintain a book for all the formulae, theories, methods
Having a separate notebook for all the formulae, concepts, theories, and methods in mathematics can be really useful for students to memorize them.
They can simply go through the notebook in their free time, while doing a revision, or even when they are on the go.
Also, practicing figures and graphs is important too, as they help them score better in the exam.
Solve previous years' math question papers and sample papers
Students must regularly solve the board exam question papers of at least the last 5 years to understand the exam pattern and difficulty level of questions.
They should also solve sample CBSE question papers to know the latest marking scheme.
While solving these papers, they should set a timer which can help them manage time better and analyze their performance too.
Work on the weaknesses to perform better
While practicing question papers or revising concepts, students must identify their weak areas on which they need to focus more to score high.
Whenever they have doubts or any difficulty, students must approach their teachers or peers to get them cleared.
Students shouldn't be scared of math and understand that the subject is important to enhance their analytical abilities, reasoning skills, and decision-making skills.
