Exam Brief

NBSE or the Nagaland Board of Secondary Education was set up through an Act by the Nagaland Legislative Assembly in 1973. The headquarters of the NBSE board is in Kohima. The body consists of a Chairman, ex-officio members, co-opted members and other members appointed by the state of Nagaland. The NBSE Board started functioning from the 1st of October 1974, and in the year 1975, the NBSE Board held its first High School Leaving Certificate Examination at 6 (six) centres, for around 2008 (two thousand and eight) candidates.

The first Class 9 examination was held in 1988 across all the recognised schools of the NBSE Board. Classes 8 and 9 examinations were decentralised and the NBSE Board started to set and supply all the question papers.

The NBSE ( Amendment ) Act 1990 empowers the NBSE Board to conduct the higher secondary school leaving certificate examination under three streams- Science, Arts and Commerce. So, the schools affiliated to the NBSE board can start higher secondary education under the state board.

The Board has also been carrying out other functions like:

a) Giving guidance and suggestions to the state government on development and improvement of school education;

b) Adopting new reforms in examinations and evaluation practices in the schools affiliated by the board;

c) Inspecting schools to ascertain attainment of standards and evaluation procedures;

d) Organising seminars, workshops for teachers and heads of different institutions to upskill themselves.

Curriculum:
The evaluation process in the state’s NBSE board affiliated schools changed in the year 2007 when the Board introduced Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE). Under this assessment, apart from the academic achievements, the achievements of the students in non-academic areas are also taken into account.

Exam Summary

As per the guidelines of the Nagaland Board of Education, the performance and growth are evaluated by Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) through Formative Assessments (FA) and Summative Assessments (SA). Evaluation is based on three core subjects, i.e., Mathematics, Science, Social science and two languages. One of the languages is English.

The Nagaland Board of Education also gives equal importance to co-curricular activities. According to the Nagaland Board of Education guidelines, the examination is conducted in two terms, and its weightage is given below:

Assessment (%)
  Formative Assessment (FA) Summative Assessments (SA) Total (%)
Term I 10% 40% 50%
Term II 10% 40% 50%
Total 20% 80% 100%


Scholastic Areas

Formative Assessment (FA): Formative assessment includes not only the pen-paper tests but also testing through quizzes, interviews, visual testings, assignments, practicals, oral testings, projects, puzzles, group activities, etc.

Summative Assessment (SA): Under this assessment process, the students will be examined based on the syllabus and curriculum of the Nagaland Board of Education Class 8.


Co-scholastic Areas

The Nagaland Board of Education believes that co-scholastic skills are as important as scholastic skills. Hence, these skills will also be assessed for the students. Co-scholastic skills include Health and Physical Education, Attitude and Values, Aesthetic Skills, Participation and Achievement in Literary and Creative Skills.

Study Plan to Maximise Score

Study Plan to Maximise Score

Preparation Tips

  1. We should have a detailed plan and a study routine in order to score better marks.
  2. We should have an idea about our strengths and weaknesses, in other words, it is important to have self assessment.
  3. We should be consistent and have confidence in our attitude.
  4. We should try to write and practice most of the chapters that include calculations by ourselves. For example, some Mathematics chapters can have problems mainly involving calculations. Therefore, we must solve it by ourselves without taking the help of a calculator. This will increase our calculation speed and accuracy.
  5. If at any time, any student gets stuck or faces difficulties in understanding any concept, then We at Embibe are always there to get you through all the obstacles.
  6. The golden rule is to divide the syllabus evenly and study each and every day regularly. We should preserve the days near the exam only for revisions.
  7. Never shy away from getting doubts clarified. It is completely fine not to know something and make mistakes. We at Embibe offer a variety of tools and innovative methods to explain every concept thoroughly.
  8. Every subject is interesting and equally important as they have the same weightage. Never neglect any subject.
  9. We should be consistent and track the learning progress on a day-to-day basis. This will let us have plenty of time for revision before the exams.
  10. We should attempt mock tests to get accustomed to the test pattern.

Exam Taking Strategy

  1. To avoid last-minute rush, we must get ready and arrive at least 15 minutes early for the examination. This will help us keep calm and relaxed before and during the exam.
  2. Having a proper time management strategy ready beforehand, prior to attempting the paper is necessary.
  3. We should keep our confidence level high and maintain a calm and relaxed composure throughout the exam.
  4. We should read the whole question paper before starting to write the answers and attempt the questions that we know for sure on priority.
  5. Don’t waste a lot of time reading the questions. If you get stuck mid-way while attempting the question, then skip and keep that question for later.
  6. We should pay special attention while numbering the questions.
  7. We should never leave any question unanswered, if we don’t know the exact answer then we should try to write something that we know is related to the question.
  8. We should read the instructions written in the question paper very carefully.
  9. Before submitting the answer sheet, we should try to go through all the solutions and check if we have answered all the questions and nothing is left to be answered.
  10. We should take several extra pens, erasers, pencils and ensure that we have all the instruments that we may need in the examination, like a geometry box.

Detailed Study plan

  1. A detailed study plan is a well-structured plan covering all the topics with proper utilisation of time. 
  2. It is always better to create a timetable for studying each and every day. It is recommended to spend at least four to five hours each day for self-study.
  3. We should develop a habit of writing. We tend to memorise things faster when we write them down instead of just reading.
  4. While studying any subject or topic, try to relate them to real-life situations. This will help in grasping the concepts better and faster.
  5. Embibe has created interesting and creative videos and many practice sessions on all 8th NBSE board topics, and if one needs a better understanding of them, using the Embibe platform is highly recommended.

Exam Counselling

Exam counselling

Student Counselling

Counselling is important as it helps students to explore their strengths and weaknesses and enables them to deal better. Examinations are an important part of the education and learning journey. The students are evaluated based on academic and co-scholastic areas.

  •  To excel in an exam, it is important to have a hundred percent concentration during the classes and lectures. 
  •  It is very important to do smart work along with all the hard work. A proper study plan is a must.
  •  Work more on the weaknesses and recapitulate all the topics that you are good with at regular intervals.
  •  Revision is a very important part when preparing for any competitive exam.
  •  We should always get the doubts clarified by the teachers, parents or friends and we should try to keep a note of all the doubts.
  • We should maintain a healthy diet and stay fit as it helps in maintaining a better state of mind.

Parent/Gaurdian counselling

Parents and guardians should be understanding and must have achievable expectations from their wards.

  • They should not overburden and pressurise their children.
  • Parents should not compare their child with other children. Every child has different interests, learning pace and capabilities, so any sort of comparison is ot justified.
  • Parents must be aware about their child’s mental health and aspirations. They must also be aware of the child’s peer circle and track the child’s performance regularly.

Practical Knowledge/Career Goals

Prediction

Learning from Real World

It is always important to learn concepts using their relevance in the real world. When concepts are viewed from the real-world perspective, their utility and importance become clearer to students. This increases the interest of students in different subjects. Therefore it is very important to have experiments, practicals, group activities and field trips.

Future Skills

Coding: In this modern world, we have computers, and skills like coding and data analysis have become the most in-demand skills. In Class 8 NBSE Board, Computer Science is an important subject that lays down the foundation of coding.

Do It Yourself (DIY): This is a creative and innovative learning method through practical activities and projects. Language subjects like English and Hindi can be taught through drama and debates; many Social Science topics can be taught and explained through debate, survey, fieldwork, etc. Science can be explained via different experiments and field studies, etc. Similarly, many mathematical topics like profit, loss, measuring the area, etc., could be taught to students by doing different activities. The Embibe app provides DIY for every grade, subject, and chapter to make learning a lot more joyful and interesting.
