ICSE Class 10 General Tips

  • Use Mnemonics, Mind Maps and Flash Cards: Create mind maps along with flash cards and paste them in your room or study table. They will form images that will be difficult to erase, thus making the task of remembering easier. BEDMAS (Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction) is very popular maths mnemonic. Create your own mnemonic or ask your teachers to help you create some.

  • Plan a Schedule and Follow it: The most crucial part of your ICSE Class X preparation is your schedule. Ask teachers the time you need to spend on each topic and concept and then plan a time table in such a way that you are able to finish your preparation months before the exam. Also take into account the ICSE marking scheme while preparing your time table

  • Write and Practice: Mugging up seems easy but once you forget one line you are likely to forget the entire content. You have to write and learn before you reach the point of revision. So, when you write you are creating a mental image for future use.

  • Don’t Take Stress: Let your parents be the carrier of stress for your ICSE Board Exams. Yes, they are breathing down your neck and telling you to study all the time and relaxing can seem difficult. However, you must remain positive and upbeat.

  • Learn meditation and deep breaths techniques to relax. If at any point you feel the stress taking control over your life, please visit your school counselor. They will help you deal with the stress and help you build up a positive attitude.
