Assam Board Class 12 Detailed Study Plan

Before starting Class 12 board exam preparation, students must thoroughly understand the entire Assam Class 12 syllabus. Learn about the Assam Class 12 marking scheme and how each topic is weighted. Then begin with the topics that carry most weightage and gain a firm grasp on them.

  • Refer to Study Material: Before students start studying for the Class 12 board exam, ensure all the necessary materials. Students can get the necessary study materials from Embibe. But be careful not to get too many books and become confused.
  • Take Mock Tests: Class 12 board exam preparation is never complete without solving sample papers or taking mock examinations. Students can practice and take mock examinations on any subject and chapter at Embibe. Students can begin their test by typing the name of the subject/chapter they want to practice in the search field.
  • Practice Previous Year Papers: Another strategy to obtain higher scores is to solve previous year papers. Both online and offline, students can readily find Assam Class 12 past year exam papers. It is recommended that students solve as many previous year papers as possible because this will give them a better understanding of the subject and the types of questions that will be asked.
  • Time Management: Never try to finish one subject before moving on to the next. Always divide the time to work on each topic. In Class 12 board exam preparation, devote equal time to each subject on a daily basis. It alleviates boredom while also allowing studenrs to complete the topic in a systematic manner.
