Manipur Board Class 10 Detailed Study Plan

Here are a few points that students can incorporate into their study plans to help them prepare better:

  • Cover the Entire Syllabus Thoroughly: While getting ready for the Class 10th Manipur board exam, do not put more emphasis on some subjects like Mathematics and Science and neglect the others. Prepare all the subjects with equal priority. Ensure to study all the topics from the syllabus.

Manipur Board Class 10 Exam Counselling

Exam counselling

Parent/Guardian Counselling

  • Help Them Manage Their Time: Students at this age are distracted by many things such as activities in school, homework, attending tuition, and extracurricular activities including games and sports. Managing time with all these activities is probably the biggest problem. You may help your child work out an effective schedule to help them efficiently utilise their time to balance their hobbies, interests and studies.
  • Being There Works like Magic: Always be there for your child, not only physically but also emotionally. This has extremely positive effects on them. Students of Classes 9 and 10 and this age group usually face intense anxiety and pressure during their exam preparation. If they know that a supportive parent is always there for them, it makes a huge difference to their mental wellbeing.
  • Use the Right Words: Never compare your child with others. This statement has a lot of depth to it. So, every time you are talking to your child, be mindful of choosing the right words. Let them grow according to their merits and values. 
  • Guide Them to Create Self-help Aids: Keep an eye on your child’s weekly assessments, mock tests, and regularity in studies. Help them analyse and prepare a study plan to address all the weak topics in a disciplined way.
  • Limit Distractions: Some of the factors that distract your child nowadays are social media, movies, television, etc. You need to identify which factor is affecting your child the most and handle it in the right manner. Remember that devoiding them of access is not really going to help them. Try to give limited access, and find a middle ground that works for your child too.
