Preparation Tips

Class 10 Board Exams play an important role in students’ education, laying the base for competitive exams, and securing a good position in future jobs. It is essential that students study primarily from their Meghalaya Board Class 10 textbooks and then move on to other study resources. The below exam tips will help you perform your best in MBOSE SSLC exam 2023:

  • Check the MBOSE SSLC syllabus and marking scheme thoroughly before beginning the exam preparation.
  • Give importance to those chapters that carry more weightage and highlight them. Prepare from these important topics first, and then move on to the lesser-weightage chapters.
  • Never make rote memorisation your friend. Always make notes while studying and write unique answers in the exams.
  • Always clear doubts on time from your teachers, mentors or peers. Never leave them unaddressed until the last moment. 
  • Practice from sample papers and solve previous year’s question papers. 
  • Revise at least one month prior to the exam.
  • Eat healthily, and take plenty of rest between the exam preparation schedule.

Exam Taking Strategy

  • Complete and revise the full syllabus well ahead of time.
  • Maintain a calm mindset and arrive exams centre well in advance before the commencement exam, and avoid the last-minute rush.
  • Strategise how to use the allotted exam time efficiently. 
  • Don’t worry; try to have a positive attitude and approach.
  • In the exam answer, as many questions as possible.
  • Before you begin answering the exam, make sure you have read all of the instructions.
  • During the examination, pay attention to all of the invigilator’s instructions.
  • Don’t waste time reading and answering questions about which you are unsure. 
  • Instead of answering the questions in the order given, write the answers to the questions you are sure about first, then attempt the questions you are really not sure about.
  • For the questions about which you are unsure, you can put down the given data as well as the probable steps.
  • Pay close attention to the question numbers and make sure they are written down correctly in the answer papers.
  • Check your name, roll number and the numbering of each question that is correct before handing the answer sheets to the invigilator.

Detailed Study plan

To get good grades on the exam, students need a thorough approach and a study plan.

One should be aware of his or her own talents and shortcomings and prepare accordingly. Here is the subject wise study strategy.

Study strategy for Mathematics: 

For many pupils, mathematics can be difficult to learn. The following are some mathematics strategies to improve your mathematics understanding.

  • Develop a deep understanding of the concepts and important topics to increase your grades.
  • Practice solved problems and exercise questions daily.
  • Study easy concepts first, followed by the difficult ones.
  • During practice sessions, avoid making silly mistakes and make an effort to correct them.
  • Make a list of Important equations in a book and revise it regularly.
  • Make use of short methods in the calculation to save your time during the exam.
  • Know the Blueprint and question pattern thoroughly. 
  • Solve minimum last 5-year question paper.

Practical Knowledge/Career Goals


Learning from Real World

Real education is one in which students’ classroom learning is connected to real-life experiences. Students gain a better knowledge of objects and subject matter when they have direct experience with things, and learning becomes more enjoyable and effective. We really have to present our students with ongoing, experiential learning such as activities, experiments, field trips, group activities, and so on.

Future Skills

Coding is a creative activity in which children can participate actively. It aids in the development of computational thinking, problem-solving abilities, critical thinking, and exposure to real-world scenarios in order to address challenges in a variety of fields. Coding focuses on setting the groundwork for students to learn how to code in order to develop skills in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Sciences, and other fields.

Career Skills

Listening skills, Understanding diversity in the workplace, language skills, research skills, planning, leadership skills, being emotionally balanced, self-survey, exploring knowledge, communication skills, etc., are made strong from the basic education itself. This can be achieved by giving opportunities for each student and encouraging them at every level of their development. This can be done by providing real-life experiences and Do It yourself activities.

Career Prospects/Which stream to choose

Although there is no direct career selection in Class 10, it is critical for students to be informed of career opportunities in order to further their education in the field of their interest. After Class 10, the student can take up Science, Commerce, arts, fine arts, diploma courses, etc., according to their interest.
