Exam Brief

Ladakh board exams are administered by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). Ladakh offers education at three levels: primary, secondary, and tertiary. Exams at these levels are administered by the designated board.  Because the union territory lacks an autonomous board, the exam is administered by CBSE. The board exam results are available in May-June of each academic year.

The CBSE board is in charge of administering the exams from first to twelfth grades throughout the state. The CBSE pattern is followed by all schools run by the government of Ladakh. The board has complete authority over the implementation of higher secondary and senior secondary level education in state-affiliated schools. The board’s powers include amending the curriculum, providing textbooks, appointing teachers, and conducting exams in all state’s affiliated schools. Scroll down to read more.

The Government of Ladakh has established a separate education board (after scrapping article 370) from 27/09/2021. The official notice can be checked from the following link Circular of CBSE

Exam Summary

Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation:

In 2009-2010, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) designed the CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) for secondary classes. This was passed as part of the Right to Education Act of 2009 to provide high-quality education to students aged 6 to 14. Continuous evaluation entails doing it every day, in class, and even after class to identify students’ weaknesses/strengths on a regular basis. The term “comprehensive” refers to the evaluation’s thoroughness in all areas, including cognitive, emotional, and functional assessment.

The CCE pattern includes two kinds of tests: formative assessment (FA) and summative assessment (SA).

Formative assessments include a student’s performance in class, classwork, homework, project submission, and active participation in various class events.

Three-hour written tests are used in the Summative to assess the student’s intellectual understanding.

Formative Assessments (conducted four times during an academic session) account for 40% of the total.

Summative Assessment (a three-hour written test administered twice; SA-1 is administered after FA-1 and FA-2, and SA-2 is administered after FA-3 and FA-4) accounts for 60% of the total.

Preparation Tips

For passing and receiving good grades in the Class 8 exams, a detailed and well-planned study plan is required. Here are some preparation tips:

  1. In order to plan their preparation, one must be aware of their weak and strong points.
  2. The most important piece of advice for exam preparation is to devise a timetable that gives equal weight to all subjects.
  3. Keep all distracting devices, such as phones and laptops, away from the study area while studying and choose a study space that is comfortable and devoid of distractions.
  4. Make a list of key points and use flow charts and diagrams to help understand the concepts when studying.
  5. Use previous year’s question papers to gain a better understanding of the question format and to help manage time during the exam.
  6. To refocus, take regular breaks after studying each subject.
  7. Practice a few mock tests and practise tests for a more thorough evaluation.
  8. Writing down answers is a better way to practise because it improves handwriting and spelling while increasing speed.
  9. To completely revise all of the subjects, try to finish the syllabus one month before the exam.

Exam Taking Strategy

Simply preparing well for an exam is not enough to score well. There are certain exam-taking strategies that should also be kept in mind in order to qualify in the exam with flying colours.

  1. Make sure you’re well-prepared for the exam.
  2. Arrive early to avoid last-minute rush and give yourself enough time to relax and concentrate on the exam.
  3. Keep track of any last-minute instructions from the examiner. Read the instructions on the question paper carefully.
  4. Before you begin answering the questions, quickly read them all.
  5. Answer all of the questions you are certain about before moving on to the questions you are unsure about.
  6. Do not panic or lose confidence when confronted with stressful or perplexing questions.
  7. On the question paper, nothing should be written or marked.
  8. Maintain a calm demeanour.
  9. Make every effort to respond to all of the mandatory questions.

Detailed Study plan

To take the Class 8 exams, a student would need a study plan as well as proper guidance. Given below are a few tips that can help students devise the same.

  1. It is best to stick to a daily schedule that gives equal weightage to all subjects.
  2. Spend at least 6-7 hours per day researching various topics thoroughly.
  3. Mathematics requires at least two hours of daily study because it is a subject that can be easily mastered.
  4. Except for Mathematics, all subjects should be studied for at least one hour per day.
  5. Physics, Chemistry, and Biology are the three branches of Science. As a result, each of the required areas should be studied for 1.5 hours.
  6. History, Geography, and Civics are the three branches of Social Science.
  7. On any given day, literature subjects can be studied for one hour.
  8. It is not advisable to study for long periods. Between 1-2 hours of study, take short breaks. These will help you relax and refocus your thoughts on the next topic.
  9. This schedule can be customised to meet the needs, convenience, and priorities of the individuals.
  10. Begin your day with a meditation session. Yoga and exercise can help you maintain your mental and physical health.

  5. Counselling is intended to help students achieve academic success, improve their behaviour, and develop socially.

Parent/Gaurdian counselling

Each child learns at his or her own pace and in his or her own way. Each possesses an extraordinary capacity for learning and achievement. As a result, as a parent, you must encourage your child’s enthusiasm while also unconditionally accepting his performance. Help your child resolve conflicts at school, in the classroom, and with peers.

  1. The trend of parents realising their dreams through their children affects not only the children’s careers but also their mental health.
  2. Parents frequently impose their decisions on their children rather than allowing them to pursue their own desires.
  3. Parents must consider their children’s education, hobbies, interests, and desires.
  4. Happiness can be found when parents encourage their children to do something they enjoy. Errors committed in middle school may have long-term ramifications for students.
  5. According to studies, 95% of students choose their streams without knowing what they are.
  6. Parents have a substantial influence on their children’s development and growth. They believe they know more about their child’s potential than they do.

Parent Counselling

About Exam

Parent Counselling

The value of counselling cannot be overstated. To resolve difficulties and concerns about their child’s condition, parents must seek professional assistance. As a result of their children’s delayed milestones, developmental anomalies, and impairments, parents and caregivers experience irritability, stress, worry, and depression. This long-term impact affects parents’ perceptions of their social and emotional well-being, as well as dramatic changes in family relationships, which can lead to family breakdown. Parents are informed about the nature of developmental delay/intellectual impairment, as well as the needs of children at various stages of development.

Here are some frequently asked questions for parents Counselling-

Q1. Should parents just leave their children alone and not worry about their preparation?

A. No, they should not. There are numerous ways to help without having control over them. You can also show your support by saying things like, “Is there anything else I can do for you?” “I’d like to know so I can plan my evening,” as opposed to “Shouldn’t you be studying instead of wasting your time?” 

Q2. Is it true that physical activity can help you do better in exams? Will the children get tired?

A. Short bursts of exercise can activate the brain enough to get things started, in part by increasing dopamine in the prefrontal cortex. Physical activity gives the body a boost of energy. Encourage your children to engage in light exercises such as walking, as well as more strenuous activities such as cycling or sports.

Q3. Is it beneficial to study in groups during exams?

A. Having an older teen advise or coach your child, or helping them join a study group of more intellectual friends, can help them focus.

Q4. Does listening to music while studying stimulate the brain?

A. Some children need background music to help them complete tasks they would otherwise avoid. White noise music can act as a distraction blocker. It can make a monotonous activity more enjoyable.

Q5. What about rest periods? How long is too much time to prepare?

A. Children frequently perform well when they work hard for short periods of time, timed by a stopwatch, and then take a break. So, twenty minutes of math, twenty minutes of science, and twenty minutes of social studies with breaks may be more effective than forty minutes of each, repeated twice. Increasing the number of starts and stops aids the brain’s ability to remain alert and motivated.

Practical Knowledge/Career Goals

Prediction

Learning from Real World

Real-world learning allows students to participate in a variety of activities while learning. They can put their theoretical knowledge to use in a variety of situations both inside and outside of the classroom. Students gain a better understanding of concepts and subject matter when they have direct knowledge of them, and learning becomes more enjoyable. Continuous, meaningful learning experiences, such as exercises, experiments, field trips, group or community-based activities, and so on, are required for students.

Future Skills

Coding: In today’s world, computers are everywhere, and skills like coding and data analysis are in high demand. Computer Science is an important subject in Class 8 because it lays the groundwork for coding, which will be extremely useful to students in the future and will give Ladakh Board students a competitive advantage. Coding is a creative activity that students in Class 8 can participate in. It assists students in developing computational thinking, problem-solving skills, critical thinking, and real-world experience in order to solve problems across multiple domains. Coding in Class 8 focuses on laying the groundwork for students to develop Artificial Intelligence skills.

Do it Yourself (DIY)

DIY is a learning method that focuses on projects and activities. Drama, for example, can be used to teach English and Hindi. Science concepts can be taught through experiments, field studies, and other similar methods. Some topics in Mathematics, such as profit and loss, area measurement, and so on, can be taught to students through exercises and activities. DIY is also available for every grade, subject, and chapter on the Embibe App, making learning more enjoyable and meaningful.

Students should learn the following do-it-yourself skills:

  1. Making a herb garden is a great way to spend some time outside in the fresh air.
  2. Restoring old tools
  3. Building new tools from discarded items/scraps.

Career Skills

A solid educational foundation improves listening skills, understanding diversity in the workplace, language skills, research skills, planning, leadership skills, emotional balance, self-survey, knowledge exploration, communication skills, and so on. This can be accomplished by providing opportunities to all students and encouraging them at all stages of development through the provision of real-life experiences and Do It Yourself (DIY) activities.

Career Prospects/Which stream to choose

Although there is no direct career selection process in Class 8, students must be aware of career options in order to pursue their passions. After Class 10, students can take up Science, Commerce, Arts, Fine Arts, and other subjects based on their interests.
