Study Plan to Maximise Score

The revised evaluation pattern makes sure that students must go through the syllabus of the respective summative period thoroughly.

Here are a few tips:

  • Identify the syllabus for the respective summative period.
  • Read through the whole syllabus more than once and absorb the contents.
  •  If you do not understand any topic, get it clarified by your teacher.
  • Make notes wherever necessary.
  • For Mathematics, repetitive practice of problems is necessary to ensure that you can solve all the problems that are given in your textbooks and other books of the same standard.
  • Prepare answers for all the questions given in the exercises of each chapter and at the end of the book.
  • Apart from the West Bengal Board textbooks, try to also follow different books.
  • Take the mock tests for Class 10 grade at Embibe for more practice.

West Bengal Board Class 10 Exam Taking Strategy

Details of the evaluation criteria for West Bengal Board Class 10 exam are given in the “Exam Summary” subgroup under “About Class 10 West Bengal Board Exam” above. To a Class 10 grade student, the evaluation process of the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education may look complicated. If a student does not understand it well, he/she should consult with his/her class teacher at the beginning of the year and ask the following questions:

  • How will the 10 mark internal assessment be done?
  • What is the question pattern for the class 10 Board exam?

West Bengal Board Class 10 Detailed Study Plan

  • Be systematic and planned: The students need to create a proper schedule for preparation for them keeping in mind the whole syllabus, to the extent of the preparation he/she has achieved.
  • Cover the whole syllabus: The candidates have to go through the whole content of the syllabus and understand all the topics of the chapters that he/she has to study.
  • Pay equal attention to each subject: Some students have the wrong idea that the subjects like Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, etc. are the only important subjects. They generally put more effort into these subjects and neglect the other subjects. This should be avoided in order to score good marks in the exam.
  • Revise properly: Revision is very important. From time to time analyse your preparation level and identify the gaps. Make a proper revision plan for all the subjects. Make the revision plan as a part of the study plan explained in point number one.
  • Practice Sample Papers: Practice on both the sample papers and the previous years question papers available on the official website of WBBSE and Embibe. This helps in understanding the question pattern, marking schemes, the difficulty level, time management etc.
  • Follow textbooks recommended by the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education: To score well in Class 10 West Bengal Board school level exams, it is sufficient to study the textbooks published and recommended by the board. If the students want additional books, they can follow any standard textbook like NCERT etc.

Class 10 grade students are in the senior-most class of the secondary education system in West Bengal Board. They are at the brink of choosing a direction for their career as they will have to choose if they will study science or arts or commerce in 11th standard. They have to take this important decision after passing the Class 10 final exam. Hence, for students of the West Bengal Board Exam, scoring high marks in Class 10 is of immense importance as far as their career direction is concerned. They need good marks to obtain the stream of their choice of study in institutes of their liking. 

Also, Class 10 students are in such an age group where they undergo both mental and physical growth. Studies are necessary, but at the same time, they need to devote some time to sports and to learn other practical skills that would help them in their day to day lives. They need to maintain a balance between their studies, sports and all other activities. Parents must not have unreal expectations and emphasise un-necessarily on the studies as they need to remember about the tough competition that every student is facing at this stage and the much bigger competitions await them. They must not neglect the development of their kids in other dimensions of life. Sometimes this becomes harmful. Hence, parents must be aware of all the disturbing factors in their kid’s life and help them prepare well, not just for exams but for life itself.
