Nagaland Board Class 9 Study Plan to Maximise Score

Freaquently Asked Questions

Study plans are a great way to begin the exam preparation. They motivate the students to reach their set daily targets and complete studying few topics of the syllabus everyday. The study plan for Nagaland board Class 9 exams is mentioned below. Students can find the best exam preparation tips along with the detailed study plan as mentioned below:

Preparation Tips for Nagaland Board Class 9

The preparation tips mentioned below will encourage the students to upgrade their exam preparation and motivate them to perform better in the exams. 

  • Students must prepare a strategic study schedule that focuses on all subjects equally.
  • It is important for the students to analyse their areas of improvement and prepare for the exams accordingly. To analyse the areas of strengths and weaknesses, students must attempt the mock tests and go through the detailed feedbacks.
  • For the chapters that involve calculations and numerical problems, students must practice with focus and dedication to develop speed and accuracy.
  • Students can refer to Embibe App to learn all the concepts of Nagaland Board Class 9 through videos. They can go through the subject-wise chapter explanations provided by the subject experts.
  • It is important to complete studying all the subjects at least one month before the exams, so there is enough time left for revision.
  • To make the exam preparation easy, students can start studying the topics with more weightage and proceed to other topics. However, it is important to study all the topics without fail.
  • Self-assessment is a crucial part of exam preparation. Students must practice sample papers and previous year’s question papers to analyse their areas of improvement.

Detailed Study Plan for Nagaland Board Class 9

A good study plan involves equal priority to all subjects. To improve overall performance, it is important that the students draft a strategic timetable that emphasises a well-planned timetable for all the subjects. The detailed study plan for all the subjects of Nagaland board Class 9 is mentioned below:

  • Study Plan for Mathematics: As Mathematics requires abundant practice, students must dedicate at least 2-3 hours of their day to practice the sums. Students must focus more on the chapters that seem difficult to understand and solve. Also, the topics with higher weightage should be given more importance. 

The sample papers and previous year’s question papers on Embibe, have a vast number of problems that teach the students how to formulate the steps and arrive at the solutions. Students must memorise the formulas without fail every day to perform well in the exams with good speed and accuracy.

  • Study Plan for Social Science: Social Science is an interesting subject if students try to understand the concepts by going through conceptual videos. Embibe provides informative videos on its platform to help students grasp the concepts quickly. To make Social Science easier, students can try to answer the questions immediately after the completion of studying each chapter.

It helps the students to excel in exams. It is important to go through the previous year’s question papers to know the questions that frequently appear in the exams.

  • Study Plan for Science: For most students, Science is one of those subjects that can be easily studied and understood. Students who find Science difficult to understand can spend more time completing the syllabus compared to other subjects. 

Practicing the diagrams is equally important to not miss out on scoring good marks overall. The topics with more distribution of marks should be prioritised over other concepts.

Practical Knowledge/Career Goals

Prediction

Learning from Real World

It is always more interesting to learn a new concept using its relevance to the real world. When concepts are viewed and presented from the real-world perspective, the utility and the importance of the concepts become clear to the students. This increases the interest of the students in the subject and makes it easier for them to grasp the concept. Therefore it is important to have experiments, practical, group activities and field trips in the course of learning.

Future Skills

Coding is a skill in which we do computer programming using a language that is used to create applications, websites, and software. We wouldn’t have Facebook, our cellphones, the browser we use to read our favourite blogs, or even the sites themselves if it wasn’t for coding.

Coding isn’t difficult for individuals who are willing to put in the time and the effort to learn. There are just a few hundred words and rules to memorise in the simplest coding languages. In comparison to learning a foreign language, that’s a drop in the bucket. It’s pretty easy to learn to code once you’ve learned the basics of any language. Also the basics for most of the programming languages are similar so if you mastered one you can easily learn others as well.

Over 700 distinct programming languages like C#, C++, Swift. Python, Java, etc have been invented by developers since the 1970s. Each language has its own methodology of assisting computers in processing large quantities of data. Every coding language has its own set of rules and features, but basics have some overlap. There are only approximately a dozen widely used programming languages. Ruby, Swift, JavaScript, Cobol, Objective-C, Visual Basic, and Perl are among them. Let’s have a look at some of the most common coding languages that beginners should be familiar with.

  • HTML 
  • Java 
  • Python 
  • CSS 
  • C Language 
  • C++ 
  • PHP 
  • SQL 

Here are a few high-demand jobs that look for individuals who can code:

  • Database Administrator 
  • Web Developer 
  • Information Security Analyst 
  • Applications Developer 
  • Health Informatics Specialist
  • Digital Marketing Manager 

It is a creative and innovative learning methodology through practical activities and hands-on projects. Language Subjects like English and Hindi can be taught through drama and plays; many social science topics can be taught and explained through debate, survey, fieldwork, etc. Science can be experienced via different experiments and field studies, etc. Similarly, many of the mathematics topics like profit, loss, measuring the area, etc., could be taught to the students by doing the activities by the students. Embibe App provides DIY for every grade, subject, and chapter to make your learning joyful and interesting.

Career Skills

Listening skills, Understanding diversity in the workplace, research skills, language skills, leadership skills, planning, being emotionally balanced, self-survey, exploring knowledge, communication skills, etc., are as important as academic performance, and these can only be developed by interactive team activities and projects that require a team effort and leadership skills

Career Prospects/Which stream to choose

Class 9th is still early to choose the career prospect, but still, it paves the way to the interests that a student will have that plays a crucial role in career prospects in the future. It is important that students should indulge in the learning process and grow interested in the academics.
