Exam Brief

The Uttarakhand Board of School Education (UBSE) is associated with around 10,000 schools, and its regional office was established in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand, on February 9, 1996. The Uttarakhand Board’s responsibilities include conducting Class 10 and Class 12 exams,  prescribe diverse study and reference materials for all classes, and organise board examination and evaluation training programme for teachers, principals, BEOs, and CEOs. They can choose their preferred disciplines after passing this class, such as Science, Commerce, or the Arts stream. They will also be allowed to choose the stream of their choosing for class 11 based on their performance this year.

Students who have finished Class 9 and are currently enrolled in Class 10 in a Uttarakhand Board-recognised school are eligible to appear in the UBSE class 10 exams. Students who want to continue their education should do well in the Uttarakhand class 10 board exams. Every year, the Uttarakhand Board of Secondary Education (UBSE) holds Uttarakhand Board examinations for students in Class 10. The Class 10 examinations are held offline for 6 subjects. All the details with regard to the Class 10 exam are released on the official website.  

Exam Summary

In 2001, the UBSE was created to supervise secondary and senior secondary education in the state. The board-level examinations were previously administered by the Uttaranchal Shiksha Evam Pariksha Parishad, which was later renamed as the Uttarakhand Board of Secondary Education (UBSE) in 2008. The board has grown tremendously in a short period of time and now has over 10,000 associated schools, with over 3 lakh students taking part in the UK Board class 10 and class 12 examinations every year.

The UK board class 10 exam will be conducted for 500 marks with 100 marks for each subject. To pass the exams, students must score at least 33% of the total marks.

Preparation Tips

Science and Maths are the most important subjects for students taking up the Science stream in Class 11. Students must focus on all these subjects while opting for the Science stream – Physics, Chemistry, and Maths/Biology. Students in Class 10 will have a strong foundation if they study these three subjects and concepts in depth.

  • Prepare a detailed list of formulas, theorem statements, important results and derivations.
  • Daily allocate 2 hours for each subject and keep 1 hour for theory and 1 hour for numericals.
  • Sit in a peaceful place to study and avoid certain distractions such as TV, mobile etc.
  • It is important to use class 10 NCERT books which can be followed in depth to score well in Science. All the question papers are prepared based on the concepts given in the NCERT book.
  • Always revise the topics on the weekend, whatever you have studied in a week.

Exam Taking Strategy

Here are a few exam-taking strategies students should follow at the time of the exam.

  • First read the question paper well

The first step is to read and understand your question paper thoroughly. When writing the answers, you must first understand the question and the number of marks it includes. The answer should be prepared logically and thoroughly.

  • Use the first 15 minutes effectively

You’ll have a good 15 minutes to read the question paper at the start, so make use of it. In 15 minutes, read all the questions. While reading, sort the questions into easy, manageable, and difficult categories. This is done to get a general idea of the questions and make a rough plan accordingly.

  • Don’t worry about the tough ones

When you find a few difficult questions, it is normal to get concerned about them. However, this isn’t necessary, and it will simply detract from your performance. Initially, they may appear difficult, but once you start working on them, you’ll find that most of them are a lot easier. So enjoy the simple ones and don’t worry too much about the more difficult ones.

  • Prioritise your attempt

Always start with the simple questions and work your way up to the more doable ones, completing them before moving on to the more tough ones. This will ensure that you don’t leave any question that is easy to answer.

Once you’ve completed all of the simple and doable questions, your confidence will build, and you’ll be mentally ready to tackle the more difficult ones.

  • Ensure speed and accuracy of answers

To guarantee that you are not wasting time and that your answers are valid, use faster approaches in calculations. For example, you may not be able to solve questions involving quadratic equations or linear equations if you make a mistake in the sign of a term (+/-). As a result, it’s critical to avoid making foolish mistakes in order to save time. 

  • Avoid spending too much time on a question

It’s important to think about the questions before you attempt them, but not to the point where you waste too much time on one. You also don’t have to exceed the word limit to answer a question based on marks. Remember, all you have to do is to answer the question. 

  • Revise your answers

Students are advised to finish their papers 5-10 minutes before the conclusion of their exams to recheck their answers after they have completed all of the questions. So don’t waste time; go through all of your answers again.

  • Select your options wisely

You will be given numerous options for certain questions. Take your time and make an informed decision. Read the question carefully before you begin drafting your response.

Detailed Study plan

The following are some preparation tips and methods that students might use to ace their exams:

Mathematics

Mathematics is a high-scoring subject; all you have to do is ensure that you understand the concepts. As you practise problems more and more, you will gradually develop an interest in them. The following pointers will assist you in achieving a high math score:

  • Make a list of formulas and theorems to revise easily at any time.
  • Do practise the problems to acquire speed and accuracy.
  • Beware of the silly mistakes that you often make.
  • Solve previous year question papers and sample papers.
  • Refer to each and every question and solve examples of the NCERT book.
  • Time management: be mindful of the amount of time you have to solve the question paper and practice finishing mock tests in that time so that you are confident on the day of the exam.

English

When it comes to English, the majority of students face several issues. Students tend to do poorly in the English subject, particularly in the class 10 board exam. Below we have provided some of the important tips for English exams:

  • Practise mock tests.
  • Go through the previous year papers.
  • Refer to the latest sample papers.
  • Work on writing skills.

Science

The Science question paper consists of different types of questions:

1. Very Short Answer & Short Answer

  • Attempt all questions.
  • Read questions carefully and make sure that answers are not very lengthy.

2. Long Answer

  • Read the question properly and the marks allocated to each part and subparts.
  • Explain lengthy answers with examples and diagrams.
  • Always draw diagrams with pencil and proper labelling in block letters.
  • Recheck for all logic and calculations.

Social Studies

The following are some preparation tips for Class 10 Board Social Studies exams:

  • Read chapters carefully without skipping any content.

Student Counselling

  • The Student Counselling Cell seeks to help students become self-aware and realise their full potential. 
  • Students can share their academic and social difficulties in a joyful and comfortable way.
  • Counselling students are encouraged, supported, and given the tools they need to succeed in school and contribute to their local and global communities. 
  • The goal of this method is to strengthen students. 
  • Children will grow as individuals with a protective strategy that emphasises being proactive in ensuring that they learn key skills and habits. 
  • Preventative education is provided through individual and group seminars, as well as classroom instruction. 
  • This curriculum has been designed to meet the needs of our children at various stages of development.

Parent/Gaurdian counselling

Being a parent may be the most gratifying, but it can also be the most draining experience you will ever have. After training your child to walk, talk, and even go to the bathroom, you may go on to teach them life skills such as how to have a conversation or how to deal with conflict. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with the number of parenting books available (each claiming to have discovered the one ideal method to raise your child).

  • Parent counselling is a nonjudgmental service that attempts to give you information, guidance, skills, and emotional support. 
  • Parent therapy, unlike family counselling, which has its own set of advantages, focuses on how you, as the parent, impact the dynamics of your family.
  • Parent counselling uses a variety of techniques or modalities to assist parents better understand their natural parenting style, as well as how different challenges impact and potentially modify that style. 
  • When a parent understands how to deal with their own personal problems, they may devote their whole focus to maintaining, expanding, or restoring peace in their home.
  • When a parent-child combination had issues a few years ago, the counselling began with the youngster. 
  • While child therapy may be essential at times, parents have a much greater ability to create behavioural adjustments that will benefit the entire family.

Practical Knowledge/Career Goals

Prediction

Learning from Real World

Students who are unable to relate classroom learning to the “real world” are at risk of abandoning their studies. Integrating real-life examples into the classroom can help students to understand why they are at school and how the courses will help them achieve their objectives.

Hands-on goals, such as building a structure in Maths class or designing a prosthetic limb for a duck in Technology class, help kids understand abstract topics like Algebra and Science. At the same time, it also provides physical evidence that what they’re doing in school matters. This type of education, on the other hand, needs more resources than a textbook.

Future Skills

  3. Visual effects and game development (VFX)
  4. Designing communication medium is done with the use of computer programmes. SMS, Chat, Voice Communication, social networking platforms, and other examples are just a handful.
  5. Many software products, such as MS Office tools, calculators, and web browsers, such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, and others, are installed on computers. All of these are created with the use of computer languages or scripts.
