Preparation Tips

Class 9 is an important milestone in a student’s academic career since it serves as a foundation for subsequent classes. In 9th grade, students learn the fundamentals of subjects, which they will expand on in 10th grade and even 11th and 12th grade. As a result, to earn a good mark in high school, you must have a basic understanding and knowledge of the topics.

In this section, we will list some important tips on how to plan your study while balancing all the things. These tips will surely help you to get good grades in class 9th.

Students often wonder how to rise to the top of their class and deliver outstanding exams. Like those in any other class, students find it difficult to organise a study schedule due to several events occurring at the same time. Daily, they must attend school and coaching and study for significant tests like the NTSE and Olympiads.

 

  • Prepare a Daily Time Table for Class 9 Kids – The most crucial stage in preparing for any exam is to prepare a daily timetable for class 9 students. Always keep your weak and strong points in mind while making a schedule. Give the subjects that you find challenging extra time.

  • Time Management – It is critical to cover all subjects from the beginning to avoid exam stress. Plan your schedule so that you don’t miss any classes, whether English, Maths, Science, Social Science, or Hindi. However, because math and science are more challenging and require more practice, you can devote more time to them.

  • Self-Study Time – School students often struggle to manage their self-study time because they must attend school and coaching regularly. However, you will have approximately 6-7 hours available for self-study after school and coaching. As a result, plan your schedule around this time window. At least 5 hours of study time per day is required.

Detailed Study plan

 

  • Students frequently inquire about how many hours a student in class 9 should sleep and study. As previously stated, set aside some time after school for self-study and obtain proper sleep.

  • Homework and Schoolwork- It is critical to review what you have learnt in school to ensure that your concepts are clear. Every day, students must do their assignments. Try to finish your schoolwork as soon as you get back home because it won’t take long and you will have more time for other things.

  • Study Material- Do not wait until the tests to organise your study material; it is critical to perform well in exams. You can look for information in other books, but don’t lose sight of NCERT.

  • Always prepare your handwritten notes because they summarise what you’ve learnt. This saves you time because you won’t have to look for them in the textbook every time you review the material. They will be useful for last-minute preparation because they are portable and can be swiftly reviewed on exam day. You can also use sticky notes to help you remember the tough concepts.

  • Play Time- Physical activity is just as vital as studying, and 9th grade isn’t so difficult that you can’t find time to have fun. Physical activity also helps keep the mind sharp, so make sure to schedule at least 1 hour of playtime in your study timetable.

  • Weekly Exams- You should incorporate tests in your study programme because they help determine which topics require more effort. On weekends, try giving one self-assessment test, for which you can use sample papers.

  • Do not stay up late- You must stick to your sleep schedule since you must get up early for school and must study throughout the day. To avoid feeling sleepy when studying, get a good night’s sleep of 7-8 hours.

There are many books to choose from; keeping your future goals in mind, you can choose the best reference books for your preparation. 

 

  • To familiarise yourself with the subject, read the chapter or book with your eyes first, and then note any sections you believe we need help with.
  • Second, read the chapter slowly and try to grasp it independently while studying by taking notes.
  • If there’s anything you don’t understand or are having issues with, look up a video on Google.
  • Glance over the titles and, without cheating, state out to yourself what the material inside it is now that you’ve completed and understood everything (highly preferred to watch online some videos on the entire chapter before this)
  • Now that you’ve studied the subject, it’s time to answer all of the questions and teach them to your buddy in simple terms. Put everything away, obtain a sheet of paper, and build a Mind Map (extremely important).
