How to prepare if the Geography Model Exam was a failure?

Geography is a broad subject; hence it is quite important that we make an assessment of areas which we have covered and know as against those areas where we have not covered. Now it is time to work on those topics or syllabus materials which you didn’t cover in the model exam preparation time. It is better to prepare notes on those areas where you need to cover in more depth. Short notes always help to brush up different areas before the exam.

Next thing you could attempt is to get hold of some previous year’s papers and analyse those areas from the syllabus from which there were more questions. It is important to pay attention to those areas.  Have a leisurely study plan and put a firm time table for covering different weak areas so that you have enough time to study and make notes.

Earth and its properties, climatic conditions, global maps, land coordinates and terrain are some of the toughest areas in Geography where usually one has to make a thorough study. We have to identify those areas and seek help of either teachers or text books to get  us stronger in those areas.
