secret tips for cbse class 9th

CBSE Class 9 is a very crucial year in your academic life. This is the class where you really begin to take your studies more seriously than ever and need to accommodate extra hours of studies in your schedule. While you don’t have to worry about CBSE board exams in Class 9, it can build a solid foundation for Class 10. Hence, you need to become more focused in Class 9.

Here  Oswaal Books is sharing the top three secrets that can prepare you well for Class 9:

Prepare a Timetable                                                            

At the beginning of the academic year of Class 9, prepare a detailed timetable allocating your school timings, commuting hours, refreshment breaks, sleep hours and home/tuition study hours. Decide your weak and strong subjects, their syllabus and allocate study time accordingly to each subject. Put this timetable on the wall or cupboard of your study room and follow it religiously. When you know what to do at a time it will help you to plan your studies and routine more systematically.


Make Study Notes

It is understandable that your mind may not be able to retain everything that is taught in the class or during self-study. Hence, it is important to make notes for each subject, highlighting important concepts and keywords. At the time of exams, you can easily refer to these notes and do quick revisions instead of spending time finding answers and solutions at the last minutes. You can even make chart papers of formulas and theorems and stick them at various places on your home. Whenever you pass by these charts, just spend a few minutes memorizing them every day. By the time exams approach, you would have learned them by heart.


Refer CBSE Help Books

In addition to your regular school textbooks, it is always advisable to refer CBSE help books.
