Study Plan to Maximise Score

Study Plan to Maximise Score

Preparation Tips

Here are a few smart strategies to help you maximise your scores:

1. Work on your speed

Students frequently fail to attempt questions they know the answers to due to lack of time, and as a result, they score lower marks. Therefore, increasing your speed is important. To do so, practice a lot of questions from a variety of topics. It’s also essential to be thorough with the derivations, as any confusion might lead to a waste of time and effort. Keep track of the amount of time you spend on each section’s questions. For questions carrying less marks, it should take no more than 3-5 minutes. This way, you’ll have more time to dedicate to the 6-markers, which are generally lengthy and difficult problems.

2. Focus on accuracy

The importance of accuracy cannot be overstated. Be extremely cautious while calculating. If you’re going to use a formula, be sure you’re doing it correctly. Remember that even a sign change, such as from (+) to (-), or vice versa, might result in a loss of marks. As a result, focus on minimising your concentration failures. It’s also good to know the chapter-by-chapter marking method since it will help you prepare better. Pay special attention to topics that have more weightage in terms of marks.

3. Stick to textbooks for basic questions

Around 90% of questions in board exams are either taken directly from NCERT textbooks or from their replicas. Hence, for basic concepts—and for getting an idea of the type of questions—stick to NCERT and the prescribed CBSE books. Practice every question in the textbooks, including the solved examples. However, for comprehensive preparation, a good reference book is a must.

4. Solve previous years’ papers and sample papers

Practicing timed, solved problems is a great way to get a feel for the exam’s style and format. Solve the sample papers and model papers within the time limit for better practice. Practicing sample papers in the same time duration as allotted in the actual exam paper will help you increase your speed and accuracy. Use KSEAB solutions for class 8 for reference.

5. Neatly write down the steps

Because writing down the steps gives you marks, you should do so when solving problems. Even if you don’t know the entire answer to a question, attempt to write down certain steps.

Exam Taking Strategy

Here are some important exam taking strategies that will help students to score better:

  • Arrive a few minutes early for the exam so you can relax and avoid feeling hurried.
  • Take a look at the full question paper before you begin. On the question paper, take a look at how many multiple-choice, short answer and essay questions are there. Let’s assume you have a 60-minute examination with 20 multiple-choice questions, 10 short answers (fill in the blanks), and one essay (needing two examples). 
  • How much time do you think each part will take? You should set aside at least five minutes to compose an essay outline, 30 seconds for multiple-choice questions, and one minute for filling in the blanks. That leaves 25 minutes for the essay, which is generally the most important.
  • Begin by going over the question paper and answering all the questions that you are familiar with. Put a checkmark next to a multiple-choice question that you are unsure about and move on. 
  • The goal is to answer as many questions as possible in a given period to get the most scores. The more questions you answer, the more self-assured you will become. 
  • Go from question to question, not backwards; if there is time remaining, you can answer those you are unsure about after completing the rest.

Detailed Study plan

  1. Start studying as soon as possible: Because you are dealing with many subjects simultaneously, you must begin your exam preparations as soon as possible, such as a week before the exam.
  2. Always make an effort to create a learning environment around you: The environment you create before your final exams plays an important role in exam preparation. As a Class 8 student, it is recommended that you study in a comfortable, peaceful, and distraction-free atmosphere.
  3. If possible, study in portions: Concentrating for a long span of time impacts your study programme; thus, include small intervals while studying for a long time. Never let anything stand in the way of you enjoying your favourite activities.
  4. Try to study when your concentration is at its peak: If you are a morning person, prepare your concepts or subjects you think are difficult before noon, and if you are a night person, keep up with the suitable timeline for better preparation.
  5. Rewrite your own notes: If you have notes, consider rewriting them for better test preparation, and if you have any unnecessary information that does not support the key concepts, attempt to avoid it.
  6. Try to make the most of every possibility: When studying for your examinations, try to take small breaks. Use the free time to memorise what you studied. Always remember to utilise most of your free time.
  7. Solve KSEAB solutions for class 8: Exercise solutions will help you immensely during your revisions and preparation. Moreover, try to complete at least two rounds of revision and 23 mock tests before your final exam.

Exam Counselling

Student Counselling

The eighth grade is the start of a professional foundation. It’s only natural for students in Class 8 to seek career advice. The tendency is to look for ways to improve performance in areas like Mathematics and Science. Why is it that beyond grade 5, learning Mathematics is always a challenge? Why do students find it so difficult to concentrate and focus? Some parents are concerned that various coaching classes are not achieving the desired level of outcome. Part of the same problem is deciding whether he/she should pursue career A or B. Students now have a variety of employment possibilities as a result of their extensive exposure. The question that keeps running in their minds is, “Which one of these is it?” Contradictions such as a dislike of Mathematics but a preference for Biological Science and a desire to become a Chartered Accountant or a Banker is common. Geography is one of my favourite subjects, but I’m not sure what I’d do with it as a career.

List of Future Exam

In today's competitive world, exams are one way to bring out students' knowledge, interests, capacity, and potential. Students must pass a school-wide test to move to the next class. On the basis of Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE), students are promoted from grade 8 to grade 9. There are a number of national and international competitive tests held each year in addition to this school-level exam. These examinations increase students' confidence and passion for their studies.

Some of the competitive exams that grade 8, 9 and 10 students can appear are:

1. National Talent Search Examination or NTSE

Practical Knowledge/Career Goals

Prediction

Learning from Real World

Students can participate in a range of activities while learning by learning from the real world. They can apply what they’ve learnt in class to various circumstances both inside and outside the classroom. Students better understand the curriculum and find studying more pleasurable when they have hands-on involvement with things and subject matter. We must provide our children with ongoing, authentic learning opportunities such as exercises, experiments, field excursions, group or community-based activities, and so forth.

Future Skills

Coding

Coding is a computer programming language that is used to develop software, websites, and apps. If it weren’t for it, we wouldn’t have had Facebook, cellphones, the browser we use to read our favourite blogs, or even the websites themselves. Code is in charge of everything.

For tech-savvy individuals willing to put in the time and effort to learn, coding isn’t tough. In the simplest coding languages, there are just a few hundred words and rules to remember. Once you’ve mastered the fundamental languages, learning alternative coding approaches is quite simple. Several programming languages use similar techniques to develop and debug computer programmes.

Let’s have a look at some of the most prevalent programming languages that beginners should be aware of.

  • HTML – The industry standard for producing web pages that show electronic data is HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). Tim Berners-Lee invented HTML in 1990 to format online information, pictures, and videos. HTML tells the internet browser how to display web pages to have the best experience possible.
  • Java – Java was created by Sun Microsystems in 1995 as an object-oriented programming language. Java commands are used to build single-machine or full-server programmes, as well as tiny online applets. Java is a widely-used programming language for mobile apps and video games, especially on Android devices.
  • Python – Python was created in 1991 by Guido van Rossum as a server-side web and software development language. Python has an easy-to-understand, English-like syntax for writing back-end operations in high-performance programmes, user interfaces, and operating systems. Many systems, like Google and NASA’s Integrated Planning System, employ Python.
  • CSS – CSS (cascading style sheets) is a programming language used to define a website’s style. CSS, which was invented by Håkon Wium Lie in 1994, tells internet browsers how to display a website’s layout, background colour, font size, cursor shape, and other elements.

IoT (Internet of Things)

In summary, the Internet of Things is the concept of connecting any device to the Internet and other connected devices. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vast network of networked objects and people that collect and share information about how they are used and the environment around them.

  • Everything from smart microwaves that cook your food for the exact amount of time you specify to self-driving cars with complex sensors that detect objects in their path to wearable fitness devices that track your heart rate and the number of steps you walk each day and use that data to recommend exercise plans tailored for you is included in this category.
  • Even connected footballs can record how far and how fast they’re thrown in an app for future practice.
  • People may use the Internet of Things to live and work smarter and have more control over their lives. The Internet of Things is critical to businesses, in addition to providing smart gadgets to automate households. Businesses can get a real-time picture of how their systems are working thanks to the Internet of Things, which gives data on anything from machine performance to supply chain and logistical operations.
  • Businesses may use the Internet of Things to automate processes and save money on labour costs. Waste is reduced, and service delivery is improved by lowering production and delivery costs and boosting transparency in customer interactions.

As a result, the Internet of Things has become one of the most important technologies in everyday life, and its popularity will only grow as more businesses recognise the need for connected devices to preserve their competitiveness.
