One of the major proble for students appearing for the CBSE Boards exam is time management. The consequences for not managing time efficiently can be dire for students. For most of the theory papers the duration is three hours and one needs to have a strategy for finishing the paper as well as revising the entire answer script.

Every student has their own method and approach by these are some of the tips that have worked well for high-performing students. The importance of time management is paramount. These are the five tricks for time management for students, or lets say time management techniques.

1. Having done sufficient amount of practise papers - Students need to solve enough practise or training papers similar to the actual CBSE exams that too in exam environments, like setting a clock for three hours and not having breaks. The activity is helpful for understanding the exam pattern and also getting used to solving 30-40 questions in one go without any large breaks.

2. Going through the paper, identity level of questions - The exam organisers give 15 minutes for students to go through the exam papers. Students must use this time to organise the paper into level of questions - easy, medium and hard. This will help you approach the question paper in an orderly manner.

3. Identifying the easy questions - Although answering the exam in an ordered manner is suggested but it is not mandatory. Getting the easy questions out of the way as it takes lesser time. This also gives you enough confidence before moving into the harder parts of the paper.

4. Allocate time wisely - Students must know how to manage time for study and how much time to allocate to questions. The ratio in these papers is usually 1.5 minute per mark and so one can allocate about three minute to a two mark question and nine minutes to a 6-mark question. Allocation also gives the students the space to figure out how much time would be required to tackle the hard questions and the time that might be left after completing different portions of the exam.

5. Always know how much time is left - Students must always know how much time is left after starting the exam. Students are allowed to carry wristwatches so that they can check the time at regular intervals.

Bonus Tip - Always adhere to the word limit.

How to prepare for the CBSE Board exams?

The Board exams are right around the corner and your preparation in the coming few weeks will play a huge role in your performance in the exams. Let’s have a look at these suggestions about preparing the right way for the CBSE Board Exams 2020.

1. Create a balanced schedule and stick to it - Ahead of beginning the core preparation for the CBSE Board Exams 2020, one must create a schedule as unstructured preparation is bound to create gaps in the syllabus you will have covered. Many students create schedules that give each subject a large window, like 15 consecutive days or even a month, DO NOT do that. The problem that it creates is that once you reach halfway through this schedule, you will have likely forgotten the things you learned in the beginning. Create a balanced schedule. Dedicate each day to at least two subjects.

2. Importance of NCERT material - For the CBSE Board Exams, NCERT books and material has always been of paramount importance. Ideally, a student should be well versed with everything that is written in a subject’s NCERT book, including the examples, questions and exercises. The bulk of a typical CBSE Board Exam will be based on the examples and questions featured in the NCERT books.

3. For English and Hindi - For subjects of English and Hindi, don’t leave them for the end, which most students do. Leaving it for the last week makes it tedious. Start at least 3 months before or include them regularly in your study schedule. Focus on building your vocabulary. The vocabulary building exercise will help you sharpen your communication skills that find use in other aspects of life as well. Of course, don’t try and go into the Shashi Tharoor mode but try and bring flair in what you write.

4. Self-study - The time spent in school and coaching is mandatory but actual effective learning happens when one does self-study. Performance in exams such as the Boards and even competitive ones is a function of self-study. In self-study, there are definitely going to be roadblocks. This is where Filo comes to your rescue, it facilitates effective learning by connecting you with the top minds from IITs and Medical Colleges over video call, the instant you encounter something that hinders your progress.

Regarding the speculations of Cancelling the CBSE Board exam 2021, Dr. Pokhriyal said that the board exams would not be held online and hinted that no further syllabus reduction would be carried out. He ruled out the possibility of Claiming it might result in students facing a lot of trouble in getting jobs and perusal of higher education in near future.

The year “2020” has been especially hard for students who could not attend schools since the month of march back in 2020 and had no physical interactions with teachers. The Classes were held in an online mode and as such there has been a rise in the online educational Platforms. The FILO APP has proved to be one such platform where students from IIT’s and the top colleges of the North Campus , Delhi University are mentoring students appearing in the recent CBSE Board Exams. Whether it is concept clarification, exam preparation strategies, or simply a confidence-boosting session, these highly efficient Mentors are available 24/7 to cater to students queries, either through a phone call or a video call.
