Though the date sheet of the ICSE exam has not been announced still but that does not mean that the students should not start preparing for the examinations. As this will be the first board exams for the students so they need an extra effort for the preparation since this is the foundation and if it is weak then it becomes impossible to construct the infrastructure of a better career.

The time duration for most of the ISCE subjects are only 2 hours so time management also plays a significant role to achieve a better percentage in the exams. The ICSE exam mostly starts in February so you don’t have much time left for your preparation considering many major festivals in between. The result of the hard work you do in these times is going to stay forever your life. Always remember that there is no substitute for hard work and it always pays.

The consistent hard work and determination you show towards your goal will definitely lead you to success in your lives. So forget about the past and start your preparations now onwards because time and tide wait for none. We have also provided few tips below which might help you achieve good marks and improve your percentage in your ICSE exam.

Key Strategies for the ICSE Exam Preparations

It is easy to score good marks in ICSE exams under one condition of consistent hard work. If you put your sincerity and dedication to your hard work it’s not difficult to achieve even 99% in ISCE exams. We have provided below some useful tips and strategies which will help you for your preparations for the exam. Please go through them and inculcate them in your lifestyle to achieve success in your exam.

  • Practice makes a Man Perfect

If you feel that you are weaker in some subjects then start focusing more on them and practice more. Try to understand the overall concept first and then start practicing. Math for an example can only be learned by practicing. The more you solve the problems the easier the concept becomes to you. It is same for the other subjects also; more you study the subject the easier it becomes.

  • Understand the Concept

Do not mug up things instead try to understand the concepts and relate with your practical knowledge. Practical understanding will always help you to store the concept in your mind for lifetime. If you are trying to learn some algorithms or laws, try practicing them in writing rather than just mugging them up.

  • Take the Help of Reference Books

Do not completely rely on the textbooks. Take the help of reference books also which can explain the concepts in a very easy and descriptive way which will help you to understand it easily. There are many alternative ways of explanation in the reference books which are not present in the main textbooks.

  • Your Notes Are Your Personal Guide

Make a practice of preparing notes on every subject. This comes handy at the time of exam preparation when you don’t have the time to go through each page of the textbooks. Also the notes are in your own language which helps you to grasp the concept easily.

  • Solve Previous Years Papers

Once you are done with your preparation start focusing on solving the previous year’s unsolved papers. This is the best practice which will help you to understand the current trend of question papers and it will also help you to asses yourself individually. After solving many unsolved papers you will automatically feel more confident.

  • Don’t Overburden Yourself

It is very common scenario that students overburden themselves studying many subjects at a time. Doing this will not help you and make you more confused and anxious. Make a time-table and plan everything accordingly. Study a specific subject at a time and keep a gap in between including some fun or outdoor activities in the time table. Doing this will reboot your mind and you can focus with more energy.

These are few major tips which will help you to achieve good marks in your exams but your dedication and hard work will be the deciding factor for your success. So focus on you aim and start the preparation with full dedication and hard work and we are sure that you will achieve your target. We wish you best of luck in you exam hope that you achieve success in your exams as well as in your lives.
