What are the most important chapters in class 10 ,i should devote time to – quora gas constant in kj


Read with a soft pencil in hand. Mark or underline any important points. After reading a topic or a sub topic mentally review what you just read. Do not go on mechanically reading without understanding. Otherwise when you read it the second time, after a few days, you will be as blank as you were the first time and that will frustrate you and hamper your efficiency. After you are sure that you have understood what you just read, note down its summary on the page margins itself.

After you finish a chapter try to attempt questions based on that chapter. You will be surprised to discover how much you missed. Read again so that you are able to answer the questions properly. At this point you may consult a help book to check your answer but only after attempting the answer yourself.

Attempt all types of questions; objective, multiple choice, short answer and long answer. Take questions from previous years’ papers. These are in fact the best source. If the topic has a diagram, draw a neat diagram yourself and label it and understand the process from it.

It has been scientifically established that one tends to forget three fourth within a week of the reading. Memory graph is a steeply downward sloping line. What should one do to overcome this? Studies also show that if you revise a matter within hours, the retention improves significantly. Ideally you should revise a topic next day and again at the weekend. Revise again in a month.

How to find time for so many revisions? Read a topic carefully twice underlining the key phrases. That is one revision. Second reading will take less time and will be more productive. Jot down a summary in page margin. It will be second revision. Solve questions based on the topic. It will be third revision. On the weekend revise just the summary or the key points. It will be fourth quick revision. Finally do a monthly revision. When it is exam time you will not panic. You would have remembered broader points. Quickly revise the whole syllabus paying special attention to some tough topics/questions/formulae/equations.

Mind remembers diagrams and colors more easily than the text and numerals. Jot down the key points in colored pens. Encircle key words in pink, blue, red, green, yellow etc. Use different thickness pens of different brands to make a different imprint in your memory. Make a group of key words of a topic together. When you read those again and again during revisions, the colorful images of the words will etch in your memory. Make diagrams of the words even when there is no diagram in the question. Your mind will easily bring them to front when you need those at the time of writing answers.

If you find a particular subject or topic difficult, learn its easier part first. Leave out the tough part initially. If there is a tough question, read a solved example. (There are solved examples in most of the Math books. You may do it from help books too). Solve a question again and again till you feel at home. A stage may come when you will be surprised as to why did you feel it so difficult to begin with.

It has been scientifically proved that deep breathing relaxes mind, settles down fast heart beat, improves concentration, and improves efficiency. The art that began in India has now been adopted all around the World. It costs nothing. It takes very little time. Most of the students are under great stress when exams are near. So relax. Take 20 deep breaths three times a day like you take medicine. Believe me you will be surprised at the positive impact.

Anyway, I figure that you are anxious about the 10 class board exams like any typical teenager is. So, first of all let me tell you that the answer that I give will be the most relevant among all because I have just passed 10 a couple of months back with a healthy CGPA of 9.6. So coming to the question that you asked, I take it that you are an average student(academically) and you want to pursue science stream in the future. Here is a list of chapters that you need to master fully in order to do well in 10 as well as in future.

Trignometry (master the subject COMPLETELY. don’t rely on drawing a table of values of angles as it would take much of your time to compare your answers again and again with table. memorize the table. Practice as many questions as you can from any reference book.(Although, I personally recommend R.S Aggarwal due to lack of time.)

Electricity( be familiar with all of the concepts. don’t mug up. they don’t ask direct definitions straight out of the book. don’t lose self-esteem if you get a simple question wrong. many a times such simple questions have the trickiest part.)

I think you can manage the rest on your own. Although I don’t advise people to mug up but I think that is the only thing that you can do about the chapter “Novels and Literature” in SST. Don’t fret during the exams as their will be many exams in the future too. Have a water bottle with you at all times whenever you study and start attempting the question paper from the back side. That ensures you marks for the questions which matter the most. And if you don’t know the answer to any question, move ahead, don’t waste your time thinking about the question for more than 5 minutes. Time is of the essence so use it wisely. Asks doubts from invigilator whenever you feel like it. And don’t waste your time and money buying refreshers for science subjects. Most of the questions come from NCERT with just a slight twist.
