Preparation Tips

Some important preparation tips that will help students to improve their learning are described below:

  1. Make a chapter-wise list to learn all the formulas.
  2. Clear all your doubts and queries from your teacher, or guide, whenever possible.
  3. Focus on the new CBSE Class 8 syllabus and prepare according to it using NCERT Class 8 books, containing the most up-to-date solved examples. Be mindful of any updates or deletions in the syllabus.
  4. It is easier to remember things if you write them down rather than just reading them. This also helps improve your writing pace.
  5. Make a study schedule so that each subject receives equal attention. Don’t forget to schedule some leisure time as well; it’s just as important as learning.
  6. Go over the curriculum and topics, again and again, to make sure you don’t miss anything during the study long break.
  7. Use Embibe’s practise questions and mock tests to assess your level of preparation.

Exam Taking Strategy

  1. Make better use of your study time.
  2. Alternate between subjects and study approaches by using different study methods.
  3. Find a study area that is comfortable for you. That is where you will be spending your time.
  4. Check your notes for completeness, organisation, and accuracy on a regular basis.
  5. Try to make real-life connections to the subject topics to make sense. This also helps you recall and remember concepts better.
  6. When you’re stuck, don’t become frustrated. Breathe calmly. If it is something you have studied already, calmness can bring it to your memory.
  7. First, go through the entire test question paper. Make a mental note of the questions you are confident about. That is what you will start writing with.
  8. You can move to the less confident ones later during the test.

Detailed Study plan

  1. To pass the class 8 examination, a student would require a well-thought study plan as well as competent assistance from the elders around.
  2. Stick to a daily schedule that gives equal weight to all subjects.
  3. Spend at least 4-5 hours per day studying different subjects in depth by yourself.
  4. Since mathematics is such an easy and high-scoring subject, it requires at least 2 hours of daily practise.
  5. Except for mathematics, all other topics should be studied for at least 1 hour per day.
  6. It is not advisable to study for longer periods of time. Between 2-3 hours, take short breaks.
  7. This timetable can be adjusted to meet the needs, convenience, and priorities of the participants.
  8. Start your day with a meditation session. Yoga and exercise can help you stay fit and healthy.
  9. Eat a well-balanced meal. Stay healthy in body and mind.
  10. Sleep for at least 7-8 hours each day.

Exam Counselling

Student Counselling

Schooling can also cause the students to have difficulty adjusting to their new environment. A child may struggle academically with pressure from their peers or parents. Counsellors can help such students who are facing difficulties with their careers and choices. With increased competition in all the fields of work, most students would benefit from an early start in career planning, as well as a stronger grasp of the basics from Class 8 that serve as the foundation for higher education. This also helps them prepare for competitive exams that the students may take in the future. Student counselling can also help students in better understanding what really matters, how to plan their careers independently, and how to improve their decision-making skills.

Parent/Gaurdian counselling

The 8th grade is the beginning of a career foundation. It’s only natural for students in class 8 to seek career advice. The trend is to look for ways to improve performance in subjects like Mathematics and Science. Why is studying Mathematics always a challenge? Why do students find it difficult to concentrate and focus on their studies? Many schools and coaching centres are failing to get the desired results are just a few of the concerns that parents have. Part of the same problem is which career their children must pursue. Students now have a variety of career options as a result of their extensive exposure. The frequently asked question is, “Which of these is the right career?” Contradictions such as a dislike of mathematics but a preference for biological sciences, desire to become a Chartered Accountant (CA), a lawyer or a Banker are common. Some of the very generic confusions causing havoc with career decisions include loving humanities subjects like Geography, Economics or History but not knowing what it would yield as a career. Parent counselling assists you in resolving all of them and laying a strong career foundation. It provides expert career guidance for students in class 8 so that they can learn about the greatest career options available to them in the future. If the appropriate option is to be made, it is necessary to be guided via a career counselling program. If a student is advised on the appropriate option at the proper moment, they can excel.

About Exam

Parent Counselling

Grades 8 and 9 are critical years for polishing your child’s various hobbies or skills. It’s the ideal time to encourage your child to pursue their passions and develop the necessary abilities. Perhaps a sports fan will be driven into intensive training to qualify for the nationals, or a civil service aspirant will begin to focus more on broadening his general awareness. To keep motivating your child, think of small rewards to give the child after finishing every exam.
