Preparation Tips for Class 10

  • English: Read your text well. Be thorough with your grammar and writing skills, as those are sections where you can lose maximum marks. That should be sufficient.
  • Chemistry: Thoroughly study the chapters from the book, learn new definitions (etc.) and solve some numericals from the end of each chapter.
  • Physics: This subject and its numerical problems require more practice. Learn definitions of various units of measurements and make sure you understand the causes of various phenomena mentioned in the textbook.
  • Biology: Familiarize yourself with the various terminologies and concepts in the textbook. You can also use some reference books to better understand them.
  • Maths: This is the most practice-oriented subject in your curriculum. Make sure you study well, understand concepts and then put in lots of practice. To study, NCERT is sufficient. It is also very important to practice previous years’ papers as you’ll need to learn how to write formal proofs. Be very careful with this because proofs generally cost a lot of marks in the geometry section.
