Manipur Board Class 9 Study Plan to Maximise Score

Study Plan to Maximise Score

Here we have shared some basic tips which help students in Class 9 exam preparation.

  • Identify your weak areas and allot time to strengthen them. Seek help from your teachers and classmates. You can also educate yourself using the internet.
  • Make a schedule and stick to it under all circumstances.
  • Allocate time to revision; it helps you to understand and recall the concept better.
  • Do not start a new chapter before the day of the exam; leave it if you have not touched it till now. Starting a new chapter at the last minute only wastes valuable time, and you can not absorb all its concepts in a hurried glimpse.
  • Solve previous year question papers and sample papers as much as possible. You will learn the pattern of the question paper and important topics. Also, you will learn to manage your time in exams.
  • Once you learn a new formula, try to solve it numerically. Make a table of important formulas. It will help you to revise just before the exam

BSEM Class 9 Exam Taking Strategy

  • Do not begin writing your answers as soon as you receive your exam question paper. Read it carefully, list the questions you can answer well, and manage your time accordingly.
  • Even though the exam is 3 hours long, ensure you finish 15 minutes early so you can double-check your answers and correct any errors.
  • Last but not least, prevent any unethical practices during the exam.

Manipur Board Class 9 Detailed Study Plan
