Delhi Board Class 11 Preparation Tips

Study Plan to Maximise Score
  • Create an organised timetable. Try to spend more time on the subjects that you find difficult.
  • Study the difficult topics when your mind is fresh because they require more concentration than the ones you have already studied.
  • Keep track of your time. 
  • Study each subject for not more than 3 hours, with regular breaks, because spending too much time on one subject will take precious time from other subjects.
  • Practise previous year’s question papers, sample and model papers as much as possible. By writing frequently, you will be able to improve your actual preparation level.
  • Examine the chapters in a relaxed way.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet that contains nutritional foods, but stay away from heavy diets that make you feel overstuffed or tired.
  • Don’t let parental pressure get to you. Most students may experience this, especially during exams, but remember to set a goal for yourself and stick to it.
  • You may feel as if all that you have studied is simply missing from your memory. This may be a frequent thought, but have faith in yourself; you will definitely recall when necessary. Meanwhile, go over the chapters you’ve already studied again.

Delhi Board Class 11 Exam Taking Strategy

  • Spend more time on questions with a higher point value.
  • Don’t overthink the simple questions – they’ll take up a lot of time.
  • Wear a watch so you won’t lose track of time.
  • If you finish early, cover your answers and rework the problems to see if you obtain the same result.

Delhi Board Class 11 Detailed Study Plan

  • Have a Positive Attitude: You may hear this often and for a good reason. No amount of preparation will help you if we are disappointed and tense. Keep cool and trust your opportunity to make the most of the time you have. 
  • Make a Study Plan: Planning your study around your schedule and needs has clear benefits. Micromanagement should be avoided at all costs because it is unsuccessful. Have a general but specific idea of what you should perform and how it will help you achieve your goal. 
  • Have a Well Balanced Diet: Your brain is currently in need of sufficient nutrients in order to function effectively. At this point, having your mental faculties on your side is essential. Refer to the question papers from previous years. This is a basic requirement since your preparation would be out of pace with the work at hand without it. Make a list of everything that you need to study. 
  • Determine your Strengths and Weaknesses: Make a list of your strong and weak subjects and the strong and weak sections of each subject. Then, compare it to the question paper’s pattern to understand how it will affect you. If the weak areas are important, you’ll need to change your strategy. 
  • Have a Good Night’s Sleep: In order to remember everything you’ve studied, you’ll need to get some rest before the exam. It’s also important to maintain your cool. If you have the time, take advantage of the opportunity to prepare to write a paper. It teaches you how to manage your time effectively and improves your recall, among other things. 
  • Drink Plenty of Water: Toxins are easily eliminated from the body when you drink plenty of water. You can keep your body hydrated by drinking plenty of water. 
  • Keep Yourself Cool During the Exam: If you get stuck on a difficult question, don’t get disappointed; instead, move on to the next one and don’t make a judgment on your performance. 
  • Move On: After an exam, your main concern should be to prepare for the next one. You may have heard the saying, “Don’t cry over spilt milk”. This is especially true when it comes to exams. Don’t waste your time in the discussion in case you have a badly written paper because you stand to gain nothing by doing this.
