Preparation Tips

Given below are a few tips to help you prepare for the MP Board class 8 examination.

Organise your study space

  • Choose a proper room or space inside your house that you feel is the best for your studies. 
  • Arrange all your textbooks, exercise books, notes, pens, pencils and other items necessary for studies. 
  • Get rid of all the possible items or things that may cause distractions, that may disrupt your attention.
  • Make sure that you feel as comfortable as possible and able to focus without any sort of disturbance. 

Use visual aids, flow charts, videos and diagrams

Visual aids are helpful a lot for studying and revision. At the beginning of a topic, make a note for yourself to write down everything that you already know about a topic, and then identify the gaps and highlight those. As you are nearing the exam days, intensify your revision notes into as small as possible, preferably a one-page note or a one-page diagram. The idea is to narrow down the gaps gradually. 

Discuss your answers with others 

  • You may feel that you are preparing well. You may overlook your mistakes. But, it is possible that the answers that you are preparing may not be correct or may not be up to the standard. 
  • So, during your preparation time, discuss the answers prepared by you with people who have an understanding of the subject and topic. It may be your parents, siblings, peers, or your teacher. 
  • This helps you to get things clear in your head, and also to highlight any areas where you need to improve.

Take regular breaks

  • While you may think it is probably best to study for as many hours as possible, but, if you study at a stretch for a long time, this can actually be counterproductive. 
  • If you were preparing for a marathon race, you cannot try and run 24 hours a day. 
  • We recommend that you study for 45-50 minutes and then, take a break of 10 to 15 minutes to relax. Then again study for another 45 or 50 minutes. 

Plan your exam day 

  • Do keep all the stationery ready well in advance for the exam day. They are pens, pencils, geometry box, erasers, etc. 
  • Check all the rules and requirements for the exam.

Exam Taking Strategy

Below we have provided some of the important exam-taking strategies for MP Board Class 8 students:

  1. Always reach the examination centre early to avoid the last-minute hassle and get enough time to relax, settle down and focus on the examination. 
  2. Listen to all the instructions given by the examiner/invigilator in the exam hall. 
  3. As soon as the question paper is distributed, read the instructions given in the question paper properly. 
  4. Read all the questions and make a note of how many questions need to be answered in various sections. Identify the easier questions and the difficult questions. Make a note of the answer to all the questions you know very well first and then do the rest of the questions you’re not sure about. Accordingly, make a plan of the sequence of writing your answers. Quickly mark this sequence in the question paper and start writing.
  5. Write your answer in a neat and clean manner. Answer the questions to the point. Write to the extent necessary.
  6. Do not panic or lose confidence while facing difficult or confusing questions. Keep your mind calm.
  7. Try to complete all the given questions in time. If you have answered all the questions in advance and saved some time, then do not leave the exam before time. Check your answers again and correct them if any error is there.

Detailed Study plan

Work out a detailed study plan and appropriate guidance by the teachers, parents etc. to clear the class 8 examination. Here are a few suggestions to help you with the same.

  1. It is always advisable to maintain a timetable for each day in which all the subjects will get equal importance.
  2. Spend a minimum of 3-4 hours each day by yourself in a detailed manner to study all the subjects.
  3. Mathematics is a very time absorbing subject, so it requires daily practice for a minimum of 2 hours.
  4. One should study all the other subjects except Mathematics for a minimum of 30 minutes daily.
  5. In Science, there are 3 sections, i.e., Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. One should thus allocate enough time for studying each of the required sections.
  6. Social Science is divided into History, Geography, and Civics. Allocate at least 30 minutes to study this subject. One can study these sections on alternate days.
  7. Literature subjects can be studied for 30 minutes on a given day.
  8. One should not study continuously for long hours. Take short breaks of 10 to 15 minutes after every 45 to 50 minutes of study. 
  9. Do some meditation at the start of each day. You can do yoga and exercise to keep fit and healthy and mentally alert. 
  10. Take a balanced meal, the one that you like. Always keep your mind and body healthy.
  11. Get a good amount of rest and sleep for about 7-8 hours per day.
  12. Ensure you study on a daily basis to complete all the topics before your examination. Try and revise all the concepts before your exams.

Exam Counselling

Exam counselling

Student Counselling

Secondary education consists of studies from class 6 to class 10 in Madhya Pradesh Board. The first three years from class 6 to 8 may be considered as the foundation for the higher classes like 9 and 10 in the secondary section.

Class 8 being the last class of this block of 6 to 8 classes, needs special attention for making a stronger foundation.

At this stage the student needs to concentrate more on his studies to make his/her foundation stronger, plug in all the shortfalls/weaknesses and start gearing up for the 10th board exam two years later. A student understanding this fact better is expected to do better in the 10th Board Exam better.

Parent/Gaurdian counselling

Parents need to understand that along with studies of their children, games and sports and interest in various other areas like film, music, social media etc, one more factor starts disturbing their children. This important factor is the adolescence factor. Parents need to play a very critical role in nurturing their children at this stage of adolescence.

Proper guidance, control and close monitoring of their children is needed at this stage, especially by the parents so that they maintain a balance among all those disturbing factors.
