Madhya Pradesh Board Class 9 Preparation Tips

Never wait until the last minute to prepare. Preparing at the last minute is not the best way to prepare for any exam. Prepare well in advance.

  • Organise your place for study

Ensure that you have sufficient space to study, big enough to arrange your textbooks, exercise books and notes. The room has a sufficient lighting arrangement and enough ventilation. The chair and table should be comfortable because you will use them for 8 to 10 hours every day. 

  • Use flow charts, videos and diagrams

Use visual aids as much as possible for your preparation. Those are really helpful. Use flowcharts, maps, and diagrams also wherever necessary. 

  • Practice previous years’ question papers and sample papers

Practicing the previous years’ question papers is considered one of the best ways to prepare for an exam. This helps you understand the question pattern, marking scheme, depth of the different topics and chapters on the syllabus and the time management of the whole paper.

  • Explain your answers to others 

If you have somebody around you (such as your parents, friends, brothers or sisters, or neighbours, who can understand your subjects), show them the answer prepared for you and ask for help in preparing a proper answer. 

  • Organise a study group with your friends

Establish a study group with like-minded students, meet from time to time and discuss various problems in the group. Make sure the group is not too big, and you use the group for a good reason. Do not waste time gossiping in the group. 

  • Take regular breaks

You need to keep yourself from stress. So, take a break from studying regularly to keep you afresh. 

  • Create a proper study plan

Make a proper and balanced study plan giving due importance to all the subjects. Make a revision plan also and make the revision plan an integral part of the study plan. From time to time, analyse the level of preparation you have achieved so far and make necessary amendments in both the study and the revision plans. 

  • Take food of your choice 

From time to time, have food or dishes that you like the most. This gives you mental satisfaction and keeps you mentally healthy.

  • Plan activities for your exam day 

Keep every item to be taken to the exam hall ready in advance. These items may include pens, pencils (well cut, ready to be used), a geometrical box, pencil cutter, eraser, calculator (if allowed in the exam), admit card etc. Know all the rules and requirements, plan your route to the school, journey time, and mode of transport to be taken to the exam centre.

Madhya Pradesh Board Class 9 Exam Taking Strategy

  • Never reach the examination centre late. Arrive early enough, allowing yourself some time to settle down comfortably.
  • Make a note of the instructions given by the examiner or invigilator just before the start of the exam. 
  • Read all the instructions regarding how to answer etc., given in the question paper properly. 
  • Read all the questions and make a plan for yourself to answer the easier questions first and then the difficult ones. Mark this plan on the question paper.
  • Do not use any unfair means in the exam. It may lead to the cancellation of your candidature for the exam. 
  • If you have some time left at the end, revise your answers and correct them if any mistake is found.

Madhya Pradesh Board Class 9 Detailed Study Plan

  • Prepare a detailed study plan right at the beginning of the year, looking at different chapters and topics in all the subjects. 
  • Revision is important at a regular frequency. Make a revision plan depending on your convenience, and make the revision plan a part of the study plan.
  • Set a timetable for yourself and abide by the same. Self-discipline is important.
  • Mathematics is a very important subject. It needs repeated practice. So, mathematics may need a bit of extra attention. Give yourself about 2 hours of mathematics every day.
  • Study all the other subjects for at least 1 hour daily.
  • Science consists of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Give at least 1.5 hours to study each of them.
  • Social science consists of History, Geography, and Civics. Allocate 1 hour to study Social science subjects. However, you may study those subjects on alternate days.
  • Literature subjects can be studied for 1 hour daily.
  • Make a collection of all mathematics formulas and the different data, facts and figures in a separate exercise book and go through them from time to time and memorise them.
  • Take regular breaks between studies. Do not make it monotonous for yourself. It may be counterproductive, then.
  • Take a proper, balanced and nutritious food of your choice.
