Karnataka SSLC Study Plan

Study Plan to Maximise Score

Getting good scores in Karnataka SSLC exam demands extensive preparation, as students must cover the entire textbook and syllabus of Class 10.

Some of the useful preparation tips students can follow are listed below:

1. Proper Schedule: Having a well-organised plan will help the students manage their time and improve their efficiency. Prioritising chapters according to their weightage marks can assist the students in finishing the syllabus as early as possible.

2. Prioritising Board Textbooks: Students frequently neglect to study textbooks in favour of other books even though the papers are completely based on board textbooks. This error should be avoided, and the students should first finish their TEXT BOOKS before moving on to other books for reference.

3. Allowing Time for Self-Study: It is recommended that the students devote at least 3 hours per day to self-study. Students can also use this time to review what they’ve learned the other day.

4. Self-Analysis of Preparation: This step is crucial when the syllabus is completed. Self-analysis assists students in identifying all of the things that require additional focus. The greatest technique to self-analyse is to solve papers and make a list of errors.

5. Preparing as per the Exam Pattern: Students should practice and learn keeping the exam pattern in mind. Attempting the test series for practice can be quite beneficial to be familiar with the exam pattern.

Exam Taking Strategy

Each exam requires a unique strategy and study plan. Students who begin ahead of their peers will undoubtedly have a competitive advantage over others who have not yet begun. Those who have not started yet, though, should not be alarmed. Here are a few suggestions for developing an effective examination approach for the 2022 Karnataka SSLC examination.

  • Before starting to answer the exam paper, thoroughly read the question paper.
  • Make the most of the first 15 minutes.
  • Do not be too concerned about the difficult questions.
  • Make your attempt a priority.
  • Maintain speed and accuracy.
  • Keep a close eye on your watch.
  • Try not to overthink a question.
  • Go over your answers again.
  • Choose your options wisely.
  • Use simple language.
  • Comply with the word count.
  • Keep your answer sheet neat and tidy.
  • Do not use slang words.

Karnataka SSLC Detailed Study Plan

To pass the Karnataka SSLC examination, a student requires an effective study plan and proper assistance. Here are a few pointers to help you out with the same.

  • It is preferable to stick to a daily schedule in which all disciplines are given equal weight.
  • Devote at least 6-7 hours per day to studying various subjects in depth on your own.
  • Because Mathematics is such a high-scoring subject; it requires at least 2 hours of daily practice.
  • All other topics should be studied for at least one hour every day except for Mathematics.
  • Science is divided into three sections: Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. As a result, each of the needed portions should be studied for 1.5 hours.
  • The Social Sciences are organised into three categories: History, Geography, and Civics. Give yourself 1.5 hours to study Social Science, depending on your demands.
  • Study Literature subjects regularly for one hour.
  • It is not advisable to study for long periods. Between 2-3 hours, take small breaks.
  • This schedule can be modified based on needs, convenience, and priorities.
  • Practice meditation first thing in the morning. Yoga and exercise can help you stay fit and healthy.
  • Eat a well-balanced meal.

Exam Counselling

Exam counselling

Student Counselling

After Class 10, the most difficult decision for any child is choosing the correct stream. When it comes to picking a reputable institution or school or stream, students are usually torn between following the herd mentality and enrolling in the most popular courses, selecting a course based on what their parents require, or just following their friends.

The vast majority of students select courses without first assessing their strengths, limitations, or interests. They make poor decisions due to peer pressure, and then attempt to change courses or colleges afterwards. So at this stage, proper counselling is needed for students. Students can call Helpline No: 080-23310075,080-23310076 for Tele counselling service on all working days from 9 am to 6 pm for any query. Students can also mail their grievances to [email protected] In the face of the pandemic, the KSEAB has implemented several creative methods to support children and their parents.

A manual on mental health and well-being and a series of webinars for students, teachers, and parents’ psychosocial well-being and mental wellness are among the activities.
