Delhi Board Class 12 Exam Study Plan

Study Plan to Maximise Score

Students in Class 12 can pass with good grades if they prepare for their exams efficiently. As the syllabus for class 12 is extensive, students are advised to prepare their timetable and study with hardwork and sincerity to pass with flying colours.

Below we have provided some preparation tips to score good marks in Class 12 at the Delhi Board of Higher Secondary Education:

  • A detailed study plan is required to achieve better results in any examination.
  • You should be aware of your own strengths and weaknesses and prepare your study schedule accordingly.
  • Maintain a positive outlook and begin your studies as soon as possible.
  • Try to write and practice the majority of the chapters by yourself, including the computations. For example, problems based on computations may appear in several Mathematics chapters. Therefore, it is preferable to practice and solve them on paper by yourself.
  • While studying the 12th syllabus, if you are finding any difficulty, we at Embibe are here to help you. We have developed several study tools and practice sessions for the class 12th syllabus.
  • Prepare a detailed timetable so that you can study every day in an orderly manner.
  • Spend a little more time on the subject and topics you feel are difficult.
  • If there is any confusion, ask all your doubts to your teachers or elders, or you can use the Embibe platform. They can answer all of your questions.
  • Try to study every day to finish all the topics prior to the examination, and gradually, one will get time to revise every topic.
  • Know the chapter weightage of each subject.

Delhi Board Class 12 Exam Taking Strategy

Giving your best in the examination is as important as the preparation process. You might have completed the preparation of all subjects with proper understanding, revision, mock test, etc. However, to score well in the exam, answering all the questions within a prescribed time limit is important. 

  • Before starting the preparation, go through the entire syllabus properly.
  • Know your weak and strong areas in the syllabus which will help you to prepare your study schedule accordingly.
  • Don’t forget to take down notes during the exam preparation.
  • Take frequent mock tests to improve your presentation of answers and time management. 
  • Solve previous year question papers.
  • Take a small break after studying for an hour.
  • Don’t try learning something new before the examinations.
  • Carry your Admit Card to the exam centre without fail. 
  • First, fill the OMR Answer sheet and question booklet with details like name, registration number, question paper series, centre code, etc., without any mistake.
  • Use only Blue or Black Ball Point Pen for making entries in the question booklet and the answer sheet/booklet. 
  • Don’t make use of any whitener or correction fluid for making changes in the entries or answers on the answer sheet. 
  • Carry all necessary stationery items to the exam hall without fail. 
  • Don’t forget to give the question number correctly in the answer sheets. 
  • Don’t leave any questions unanswered. Just try to attempt the question and at least put the question number in the answer sheet. 
  • Listen to all the instructions provided by the invigilator during the time of examination.
  • Before submitting the answer sheets to the invigilator, make sure that you have attempted all the questions and the numbering of each question is done in the correct order.
  • Don’t get too stressed, and as said, always keep a positive attitude and attempt the examination with all the confidence and try to answer all the questions.

Delhi Board Class 12 Exam Detailed Study Plan

  • A detailed study plan is a well-structured plan created by students listing their learning goals and study time. 
  • Prepare subject-wise and day-wise timetables.
  • Study for at least four to five hours each day to ace your exams.
  • While studying every subject, connect them to real-life situations. This will help you to remember all the concepts easily.
  • Embibe has created interesting videos and practice sessions on all the 12th topics. Students can refer to these videos to gain clarity of concepts.
  • Attempt Mock tests before the final exam to get a fair idea about the exams.
