After students are done with their Class 10 board exams, they want to relax because it was challenging to prepare for the board exam. But, when students get promoted to the 11th grade, they need to start fresh because the syllabus and the subjects will be completely different. In Class 11, students need to choose their preferred stream, i.e. Science, Commerce and Arts. The Science stream includes Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths. The concepts of all these subjects will be quite different and more concept-based. So if students choose the Science stream, then the difficulty level will be high compared to the Science taught in school earlier. Students who want to pursue their career in engineering or become a doctor need to understand the concepts of Science included in Class 11 thoroughly. In Class 11, you need to emphasise more on application rather than focusing on theoretical research.
Class 11 students must deal with the vast syllabus, heavy books, and subjects specific to the stream. To help students prepare better for their Class 11 exam, we have provided some tips.
4 Tips to Prepare for Class 11 Science Stream Exam
1) Know the syllabus
The most important thing is to know the syllabus. Before beginning any studies, students must be thorough with the entire syllabus. The foremost thing that a student should do is go through each subject’s syllabus, whether Maths, Physics, or any other subject. Knowing the syllabus will help students understand what topics to cover. They should also be familiar with their practical subjects, such as Physics practical class 11, Chemistry practical and Biology practical.
2) Refer to the NCERT books
The most reliable and authentic study resource for students is NCERT books. These books are recommended by the CBSE and are designed by keeping in mind the latest syllabus and pattern. These books will give conceptual clarity to students and help them easily understand complex concepts. Also, in exams, the question papers are set by referring to the NCERT books, and most of the questions in exams are asked from these books. So, studying from NCERT books will be an advantage to students as it helps them score good marks. These books will also help them prepare for competitive exams such as JEE, NEET etc.
3) Create your notes
Studying from your own handwritten notes helps in understanding the topic easily and quickly. So, students must build a habit of creating their notes. By writing down the important points, and formulas in one place, students can easily revise them whenever they get stuck somewhere while studying or solving a question. Creating notes also helps in last-minute revision, and saves students’ time during the exam.
4) Create a study plan
Class 11 students have a vast syllabus and many topics to cover. For that reason, students should create a study plan for themselves. Creating a study plan will organise their studies. They can devote time according to their interest. They can allocate more time to those subjects they find difficult to understand and map out the study schedule accordingly. The study schedule will also help them keep track of what topics they have studied and what needs to be covered.
By going through these tips, students will know how to organise their studies to score high marks in the exam. These tips will also help build a strong base of students and give them conceptual knowledge. If you score low marks, you will not be promoted to the next standard. These tips can also be utilised while preparing for CBSE Class 9 examination. Class 9 students should be thorough with their syllabus textbooks, practise unseen passage for Class 9, sample papers, etc.
