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

The first thing the student must do is to stop being worried. Becoming agitated will only increase the stress. This won’t provide the students with the right mind to study. The students must give more importance to the physics subject. The basic thing they need to understand the subject more is to be more aware of its concepts. The best method to gain this knowledge is to keep on reading the physics text at all times. It would also do them some good if they write down shorts notes when they are studying. This will be of help for them prior to their finals. They won’t have to read the entire notes, but can go through these short notes and understand the concepts really quickly.

The physics text books of the NCERT will carry sample questions at the end. Students can attempt these questions. Apart from this, they can also purchase sample CBSE question papers from stationary stores. Practicing on these will give them more confidence.  To make their notes clearer, students can support their answers with well labeled and neat diagrams.

How to prepare if Physics Model Exam was a success?

If the exam was a success, the students must never take this to their heads. The model test is only a prelude to the finals. The latter will be tougher than the former.

Interactive quizzes as well as well revised notes will be available for the students to use. These effective online revisions will help the students improve their time management skills.

Tips and Tricks to prepare for the Physics Exam

These are some of the tips the students can make use of at the time of their exams:

  • Make sure that you read every chapter thoroughly. The questions may be direct or indirect. Knowing all the concepts will help the students answer effortlessly.
  • Make short notes about derivations in each and every chapter. In addition to this, writing down the proofs will also be good.
