Preparation Tips

  1. To score better marks in any school examination or a competitive test, a detailed strategy and a study plan is essential.
  2. Students must be aware of their academic strengths and weaknesses.
  3. One should keep a confident attitude and begin the preparation on time.
  4. For the chapters that include calculations, we should try to write and practice most of them ourselves. For example, some mathematics chapters can have problems mainly involving calculations. Therefore, we should solve it by ourselves without using a calculator. This will increase our calculation speed and accuracy.
  5. If at any time one gets stuck or faces any difficulties in understanding any concept, then We at Embibe are always there to get you through all the obstacles.
  6. The golden rule is to distribute the syllabus evenly and study every day regularly. We should keep the days near the exam only for revisions.
  7. Never shy away from getting your doubts clarified. It is completely fine not to know something and make mistakes. We at Embibe offer a variety of tools and innovative methods and tools to explain every concept thoroughly.
  8. One should be very consistent and track the learning and progress on a day-to-day basis. This will let one have plenty of time for revision before the exam.
  9. Attempt several mock tests to get accustomed to the test pattern.
  10. Consistency is most important.
  11. Maintain a proper balance between your studies and extracurricular activities so that you can focus on both your academic and mental well-being.

Exam Taking Strategy

 

  1. To avoid a last-minute rush, you must get ready and arrive for the examination at least 15 minutes early. This will help you to keep a calm and relaxed composure.
  2. Always remember to clock your exam, maintain a close watch on the clock prior to attempting the paper.
  3. Be confident and keep a calm and relaxed composure throughout the exam.
  4. Give a read to the entire question paper before starting to write the answer and attempt the question that you know for sure on priority and leave the questions that you have doubt for the latter.
  5. Don’t waste too much time thinking and reading the question. If you get stuck mid-way while attempting the question, skip and/or keep that question for later.
  6. Pay special attention while numbering the question while attempting to answer it.
  7. Never leave any question unanswered even if you don’t know the exact answer, then try to write something that you know is related to the question but only do this if you have additional time.
  8. Read the instructions written in the question paper carefully.
  9. Before submitting the answer sheet, try to go through all the questions and check if everything is answered.
  10. Take extra sets of pens, erasers, pencils and any other instruments you may need in the examination like a geometry box, etc.

Detailed Study plan

  1. A detailed study plan is a well-structured plan for efficient utilisation of the study hours. This will help students to be more productive.
  2. We should create a timetable for studying each day. It is recommended to spend at least four to five hours each day in a well-planned manner.
  3. We should develop a habit of writing as it is a proven fact that we tend to memorise things faster when we write them down.
  4. While studying any subject, try to connect concepts to real-life situations. This will help you understand and grasp concepts better and faster.
  5. Embibe has created interesting and creative videos and practice sessions on all the 6th HPBoSE board topics, and if one needs a better understanding of all the concepts, then it is highly recommended to use Embibe and get the most out of the learning journey.

Exam Counselling

Student Counselling

Counselling helps the students to explore their inherent strengths and weaknesses. Examinations are a part of education and learning. A student is evaluated based on academic and co-scholastic areas.

  • To excel in an examination, it is important to have complete attention during the classes and lectures.
  • Smart work is more effective than hard work. A proper plan is a must to perform better.
  • Focus more on the weakness and recapitulate the topics that you are good at regularly to avoid forgetting them.
  • Revision is a very important part when preparing for any exam therefore keep sufficient time for revision.
  • Always get the doubts clarified by the teachers, parents or friends. Keep a note of all the doubts and go through them during revision.
  • Maintain a healthy diet and stay fit as it helps maintain a better state of mind, which is important when preparing for any exam.

Parent/Gaurdian counselling

  • Parents and Guardians should have realistic expectations from their wards, and they shouldn’t pressurise them.
  • They must not overburden or pressurise the child.
  • Parents should not compare their children with others. Every child has different interests, learning pace and capabilities, so it is not suitable for them to compare.
  • Parents should be aware of their children’s state of mind and aspirations. They should also be aware of their peer circle and track their performance regularly.
  • Guardians should keep track of their mental health.

Practical Knowledge/Career Goals

Prediction

Learning from Real World

It is always very important to learn a new concept using the relevance of the real world to learn and understand the concepts better. When concepts are viewed from the real-world perspective, the utility and the importance of the concept become clear to the students. This increases the interest of the students in the subject. Therefore it is important to have experiments, practical, group activities and field trips.

Future Skills

Coding is a skill in which we do computer programming using a language that is used to create applications, websites, and software. We wouldn’t have Facebook, our cellphones, the browser we use to read our favourite blogs, or even the sites themselves if it wasn’t for coding.

Coding is easy for individuals who are willing to put in the time and the effort to learn. There are just a few hundred words and rules that are required to memorise in the simplest coding languages. In comparison to learning a foreign language, it is comparatively very less. Also the basics for most of the programming languages are similar so if you mastered one you can easily learn others as well.

Over 700 distinct programming languages like C#, C++, Swift. Python, Java, etc have been invented by different developers since the 1970s. Each language has its own methodology of assisting computers in processing large quantities of data. Every coding language has its own set of rules and features, but basics have some overlap. There are only approximately a dozen widely used programming languages. Ruby, Swift, JavaScript, Cobol, Objective-C, Visual Basic, and Perl are among them. Let’s have a look at some of the most common coding languages that beginners should be familiar with.

  • HTML– HTML (hypertext markup language) is the standard language for developing web pages that display electronic data. HTML was created in 1990 by Tim Berners-Lee and is used to format internet web pages, images, and videos. HTML instructs the internet browser on how to display web pages in order to provide the best possible user experience.
  • Java– Sun Microsystems invented Java in 1995 as an object-oriented programming language. Java programs are used to develop applications or instructions for a single machine or a full server, as well as small online apps. Java is a popular programming language for mobile apps and video games.
  • Python– Guido van Rossum founded Python in 1991 as a server-side web and software development language. Python offers a straightforward, English-like syntax for writing back-end operations for well-performing programmes, user interfaces, and operating systems. Python also offers a variety of functions and packages which makes it easier to write lengthy programs. Python is used by many systems, including Google and NASA’s Integrated Planning System.
  • CSS– CSS, or cascading style sheets, is a scripting language for styling a website. CSS, which was created by Hkon Wium Lie in 1994, informs internet browsers about the layout, background colour, font size, cursor shape, animations, and other aspects of a website. For websites to have visual appeal, attractive CSS code must be created.
  • C Language– C is a low-level coding language created by Bell Labs in 1972 for creating the UNIX operating system. C is the one of the simplest programming languages, with only 32 fundamental keywords for scripting embedded devices and network drivers.
  • C++– C++ is an object-oriented programming language that builds on C and allows us to do higher-level computer operations. C++ is a programming language created by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1983 that organises and stores data in bundles enabling more complex programmes. C++ is used in Adobe, Microsoft Office, Amazon, and Mozilla software.
  • PHP– PHP, or hypertext processor, is a web development computer language created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994. PHP is frequently used to create dynamic website content by enabling server programming with HTML. PHP is used extensively in WordPress, an open-source online platform that powers 20% of all websites and blogs.
  • SQL– SQL, or structured query language, is a sort of domain-specific coding that allows data and data query to be streamed into a database and vice versa. SQL is a simple syntax for running back-end online databases that was first proposed by IBM researchers in 1974. Most organisations use SQL to load, retrieve, and analyse text or numbers stored on their servers..

Do It Yourself (DIY):It is a creative and innovative learning method through real world activities and projects. Language Subjects like English and Hindi can be taught through drama and plays; many social science topics can be taught and explained through debate, survey, fieldwork, etc. Science can be experienced via different experiments and field studies, etc. Similarly, many of the mathematics topics like profit, loss, measuring the area, etc., could be taught to the students by doing the activities by the students. Embibe App provides DIY for every grade, subject, and chapter to make your learning joyful and interesting.

Career Skills

Listening skills, Understanding diversity in the workplace, research skills, language skills, leadership skills, planning, being emotionally balanced, self-survey, exploring knowledge, communication skills, etc., are as important as academic performance, and these can only be developed by interactive team activities and projects that require a team effort and leadership skills.
