Common problem among board students: too much to study, too little time left!


Yes, this is the main problem that worries them the most! They complain about the enormous amount of syllabus to prepare.

But, first of all, I would like to point out that this scenario arises only due to their carelessness only! Had they started preparing for board examinations quite early on then this situation would have never arrived!

But time is a precious commodity. It can’t be bought, just like students buy costly books and guides! Once gone, it is gone for good!

So, under such circumstances, what students must do is to focus on their goals and manage time efficiently! Here are three golden rules to prepare for board examinations when less time is left-


#1 Set up small goals each day; achieve them!


Set and hit!

When asked to prepare enormous syllabus, most students take a look at the sheer size of the course material and lose hope and come under depression. This can be avoided by breaking study material into smaller sections.

Yes, set up small goals each day- like preparing 1 chapter at a time. Also make it a point to work hard and achieve those goals. Repeat this process each day and you will observe the burden getting reduced each day!


#2 Eliminate procrastination

Sign board

Don’t procrastinate!

Procrastination is the biggest enemy of a student, if you ask me! Many students tend to set targets, only to give up, procrastinate and ultimately remain unprepared for board examinations!

#3 Time management tips


Time is precious!

As mentioned on other articles, time management is very important in a student’s life! When less time is left, manage the remaining amount of time efficiently.

Creating a well planned and much researched time-table is the best way to manage time well. You may also take help of your parents to help you set up a time-table and make you stick to it. But the motivation to stick to a time-table should come from within!

These are the 3 golden rules for board examination students. Also, do check out the other two articles I mentioned in this post, at the start. When combined, these tips will help you prepare well, even with less time left before the examination starts.
