One of the most important subjects for the Boards, especially for students who plan to opt for it in +2, Science is a tricky subject because it is a combination of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, each of which are major subjects of their own. However, with a large proportion of numerical and diagram-based problems, Science is a scoring subject too.

  1. Taking notes during initial reading helps in revision later on. Keep a notebook on the side, taking brief notes of the key points and definitions.
  2. Create a list of the important formulae that can be used as reference every day. With regular use, you’ll be able to recall them without the use of your reference sheet.
  3. Flash cards and board clippings can be used to memorize key definitions.
  4. Preparation from NCERT should be thorough, as the pattern is based on the NCERT curriculum only.
  5. Some topics can be problematic in Science. It is better to make a separate note of all your doubts and clarify them with your teacher. You might get alternative and easier ways to solve the question too.
